Khalen Dwyer is Vice President. He joined Columbia Capital Management in 2010 as a graduate from Pittsburg State University. Since joining Columbia, Mr. Dwyer has provided cashflow structuring advice and analytical and financial modeling services to several higher education and general government issuers including, the University of Kansas; Kansas State University; Wichita State University; East-West University (Chicago); State of Kansas (Kansas Development Finance Authority; State of Missouri; Kansas Turnpike Authority; Illinois Toll Highway Authority; St. Louis County, Missouri; Chicago Public Schools; and numerous cities throughout Kansas and Missouri.

Among his other accomplishments, in 2012, Mr. Dwyer served as analyst for the Kansas Turnpike Authority's Series 2012A Refunding Bonds, on which Columbia advised the Authority to refund certain of its outstanding bonds to take advantage of historically low interest rates. Mr. Dwyer also served as analyst on one of the largest Qualified Energy Conservation Bond issues at the time: Kansas Development Finance Authority's Series 2010U-1 Bonds. The financing raised funds for energy efficiency improvements across Kansas State University's Manhattan, Kansas campus. Mr. Dwyer constructed in-house cash flow models to determine the most cost-effective amortization structure, and to configure the optimal structure around the complex and dynamic QECB subsidy.

Mr. Dwyer graduated Summa Cum Laude from Pittsburg State University, earning a B.B.A. in Finance. His undergraduate work included the construction of a model that compares and contrasts tax implications on investment returns in various retirement savings vehicles, and which uses a Monte Carlo simulation to observe the potential effects of market volatility on portfolio returns over extended periods of time. He is a Series 50 municipal advisor representative.
