STAMFORD, Conn., May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mischler Financial Group, the financial industry's leading boutique investment bank and securities brokerage owned and operated by service-disabled veterans, today announced that in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day, the firm will contribute 10% of its May profits to Fisher House, the private-public partnership that provides temporary housing facilities at no cost for visiting family members of disabled veterans who are hospitalized for treatment in local VA medical centers.
Dean Chamberlain, CEO of Mischler Financial Group, stated, "In connection with our year-round commitment to various programs that help service-disabled veterans, we're honored to play a supporting role to Fisher House. This is a critically-important organization that enables veteran family members to provide crucial, onsite care and support for their injured loved ones while they undergo extended medical treatment at venues far from their homes."
Noted Fisher House CFO David Fox, a U.S. Naval Academy alumni and former senior partner of financial industry consultant Greenwich Associates, "Having the financial support of a firm such as Mischler Financial not only adds wind to our sails, but when considering the legacy of the firm, their recognition speaks volumes to the importance of the Fisher House mission."
