Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co. LLC (SCSCO/formerly Siebert Brandford Shank) is the nation’s largest African-American, woman and Latino-owned investment banking firm and one of the top 15 bond firms nationally. Since its inception, SCSCO has underwritten more than $2.5 trillion in financial transactions for its clients and many critical infrastructure projects and ranks among Reuters’ top 10 in key infrastructure categories such as Airports, Seaports & Marine Terminals, Toll Roads, Highways, Water & Sewer and among others. 


As it strategic communications counselor, Butler Associates has proactively worked with the firm and its leadership to achieve significant positive message delivery in national news outlets from the Wall Street Journal and New York Times to Bloomberg, Crain’s, Reuters, B.E.T., and dozens of regional media platforms where the firm competes.


Butler Associates helped SCSCO successfully roll out a new partnership structure involving former U.S. HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros and former NYC Comptroller William Thompson, as well as current CEO/Chairwoman and Majority Owner Suzanne Shank.  The firm video we created helps present that story.


Since joining forces with the Butler Associates, SCSCO has gained visibility in important news outlets, including CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg TV, the Sunday New York Times Business Section, the Wall Street Journal, 1010 WINS and CBS Radio and the prestigious financial show, “Wall Street Week.”


SCSCO has also gained major features in industry outlets like Bond Buyer, which profiled Ms. Shank as part of its special issue “Trailblazing Women in Public Finance” and spotlighted its industry-leading quarterly earnings results in a front page industry round up titled, “Siebert Surged into Top 10 in Underwriting.” Crain’s Detroit Business featured Ms. Shank on its list of most connected business people in Michigan.


The firm continues to maintain a large presence in specific MWBE focused news outlets that include Univision, Latino Leaders, Essence Magazine, NBC’s Grio, Telemundo, The Network Journal, Women in Business and Industry, B.E.T. and Black Enterprise.  Public awareness of the firm and its leaders has flourished in partnership with the Butler Associates team.
