Drexel Hamilton, a service-disabled veteran-owned broker-dealer, announced yeesterday the retirement of President and CEO, James Cahill. AnthonyFelice, DanielBoyle,and John Martinko, all service-disabled Veterans and employees of the firm, will assume day to day leadership of the firm.

I have had more gratification doing this job than any man should have, said Cahill. Im proud to pass the torch to three capable and deserving service-disabled Veterans.

Drexel Hamilton was founded by Lawrence Doll in 2007 on the principle of offering meaningful employment opportunities to disabled Veterans. Under Cahills leadership, the firm employs 40% veterans, half of whom are service-disabled.
