Mission Markets Announces Launch of New Platform

Adds New Professionals to Management Team

Published 02-21-13

Submitted by Mission Markets

Mission Markets, Inc. announced the relaunch of its newly enhanced services platform today. This announcement follows an expansion of its management team in 2012 and the establishment of a new broker-dealer relationship with Hexagon Securities, LLC in January.

The new website features a clear explanation of the Mission Markets business model, gathers relevant sustainable market news, details the process for launching a community portal, and provides accredited investors access to the proprietary MMX platform for private placement offerings. Mission Markets plans to offer additional features throughout the year.

The MMX platform not only allows accredited investors to search for listed offerings that match their individual investment criteria, but also simplifies document review. The platform is supported by Hexagon Securities, LLC, which entered into an agreement to provide broker-dealer services for Mission Markets and its clients in January.

In December, Ken Marienau was appointed as the new CEO of Mission Markets. Ken has prior leadership experience in financial services with Bendigo Partners, LLC and E*TRADE Financial Corporation (ETFC). Joining Ken on the Mission Markets team is Dawn Edwards, Senior Managing Director of Institutional Investor Services, and Dave Bernat, Director of MMX Market Operations. Each brings over 20 years of financial services industry experience.

Mike Van Patten, Founder and President of Mission Markets, commented: “These new additions to our management team strengthen our knowledge base and expand our network of investors in the sustainable capital field. In addition, they bring strong execution expertise at a time of growth.”

Ken Marienau added, “The new Mission Markets platform offers financial tools which enable capital to flow into sustainable and local community organizations. I believe these investments will accelerate lasting, positive change, while creating financial returns for investors.”
