AmeriVet Securities Inc. (AVI), a service-disabled veteran-owned broker-dealer headquartered in New York City, has appointed Donald Webbe to the AVI board of directors, the company announced in a news release.

Webbe currently serves as the managing director and COO at South Street Securities Holdings, Inc. (SSSHI), which he joined in 2001. 

Webbe began his financial services career in 1986 as a treasury specialist at Citibank, eventually rising to the position of vice president, where he oversaw finance, funding and futures operations, as well as domestic and international clearance. After a 15-year-tenure at Citibank, Webbe left to join SSSHI in 2001.

"AVI is uniquely positioned as the only black-owned, service-disabled veteran firm in the area, combining the expertise of military veterans with capital markets specialists,” Webbe, who is African-American, said in the news release. “I look forward to getting started and collaborating with so many well-respected members of the veteran community."
