What Does McGladrey’s Joe Adams Have in Common With the Aflac Duck and NKOTB?

Joe Adams has a date at NASDAQ this afternoon:

In conjunction with the upcoming "Trends in Business Development Companies" (BDC) conference on Tues., June 10, McGladrey LLP, the leading U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square. The BDC conference is co-hosted by McGladrey, Small Business Investor Alliance (SBIA) and NASDAQ, and will feature discussions around the latest BDC intelligence and trends in the marketplace.

In honor of the occasion, Joe Adams, managing partner and chief executive officer of McGladrey, will ring the Closing Bell.

You will note that the Aflac duck and New Kids on the Block also rang closing bells — the difference being that was over at the NYSE.

Poor McGladrey. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
