Ex-Gov. David Paterson joins financial advising firm

ALBANY — Former Gov. David Paterson has become a financial adviser with a Manhattan firm as a director in the investments office, the company announced Friday.

Paterson, 62, joins Stifel, Nicolaus & Company after spending his time since leaving the governor’s office in 2010 as a talk radio host for WOR, a political consultant and as chairman of the state Democratic Party. Paterson said he has undergone training and took the required test to be a financial adviser.

“I first became fascinated with the relationship between finance and government when I was the Senate minority leader and learned the state had just doubled its debt because it bonded out everything, including cars,” Paterson said.

Paterson joins fellow Hofstra University alumnus Wayne Chrebet at the firm. Chrebet is a former wide receiver for the New York Jets. He works on sports and entertainment projects.
