Letter From Mike Schroeder

All of us at Baird are incredibly excited to be celebrating the 100th anniversary of our firm.

But we understand this milestone represents more than the end of a century and the success we've been able to realize in that time.

We appreciate that this is the culmination of a decision we made in 1919 to keep our clients first, and we're proud of the way that's guided our accomplishments over the years. Even before the majority of us were employee-owners, we understood Baird's success would always depend on yours. That's why we've consistently grown our capabilities — expanding our offerings, talent and geographic footprint — all to meet the evolving needs of clients like you.

We know everything that's made us who we are today positions us well for the future. And we want you to know — wherever that future might take you — you can trust Baird will be there with the insight you want, the expertise you need and the dedication you deserve.

Thank you for making all of this possible.
