American Securities Association

The American Securities Assn. has hired Kelli McMorrow as head of government affairs and director of fixed income policy.

She joins the ASA from Bond Dealers of America, where she exited as senior VP after a three-year run.

Earlier, McMorrow was chief of staff for former Texas Republican Congressman Randy Neugebauer, who served on the House Financial Services Committee.

The ASA bills itself as "America's voice for Main Street investors" and the only trade group to advocate on behalf of regional financial services firms.
