Paul A. Braden has been named one of the Dallas Business Journal’s 2018 Minority Business Leaders. The list lauds the top determined professionals that "have a proven track-record of excellence in advocating for others in their communities and workplaces” and spotlights 30 highly-effective ethnic minority leaders of successful companies, who advocate for any ethnicity in a corporate setting.
As our US Head of Public Finance, Braden advises on a variety of debt issuance matters, including venue project financings, pension bonds and tax credit bonds. Serving as bond counsel, underwriters' counsel and issuer counsel, he has represented clients in financings involving billions of dollars of debt securities.
In 2017, Braden was appointed to the governing board of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. The TDHCA is a Texas state agency which provides housing and community development opportunities for low income individuals, nonprofit organizations, rural communities, local governments and investors. Prior to his appointment to the TDHCA, Braden served for 10 years on the Texas Pension Review Board, including two years as its chair.
