H.W. Kaufman Financial Group has appointed Daniel J. Kaufman as senior vice president of corporate growth. He will also continue to serve in his previous role of managing director and lead the Chicago, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Minneapolis offices.

“When my father, Herbert W. Kaufman, founded the company in 1969, his long-term plan for the viability of the company was to preserve its legacy of excellence through family leadership,” said Alan Jay Kaufman, who serves as chairman, president and CEO of H.W. Kaufman Financial Group and its largest subsidiary, Burns & Wilcox. “As a third-generation leader, Danny will play an invaluable role in enhancing the strategic direction, financial success, and continued growth of the Kaufman group of companies.”
