Bancroft Capital Founder and CEO Cauldon Quinn Graduates from Merck Drexel Advanced Leadership Program

Posted: June 18, 2021

Fort Washington, PA – June 18, 2021 Bancroft Capital Founder and CEO Cauldon Quinn recently graduated from the Merck Drexel Advanced Leadership Program (ALP) as part of the inaugural cohort.

The ALP is a four-part, three-month executive development opportunity for diverse business owners to enhance their leadership and business acumen to strengthen and grow their business.

Designed with Merck by Drexel University in collaboration with Diversity Alliance for Science (DA4S), this experiential development program is focused on application and supported by evidenced-based research and practitioner-industry experience. Participants have an opportunity to engage with faculty, their peers and Merck organizational leaders in thought-provoking, facilitated discussion that enhances self-reflection and personal development while building relationships across the broader community network.

“It was truly an honor to be selected to participate in the ALP initiative, alongside top business owners from throughout the country. It’s been an invaluable experience. The program provided the tools and knowledge to help our clients grow and flourish,” explained Quinn.

 About Bancroft Capital
Bancroft Capital, a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in Institutional Brokerage and Capital Markets services, is rising above the competition.

Bancroft was co-founded in 2017 by Cauldon D. Quinn, CEO, a disabled Navy veteran. His vision was to build a company with a strong commitment to service: service to clients, country, and veterans. As a for-profit company, Bancroft rises above the competition on the merit of value-added content and leadership derived from industry veterans with 40+ years of industry pedigree; and on the foundation of a commitment to offer meaningful training and employment to service-disabled veterans through Bancroft’s signature Veteran Training Program (VTP).

Bancroft holds significant certifications and affiliations which illustrate their national significance in the veteran, higher education and business sectors, including: Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB); Elite SDVOB Network, Veterans in Business Networking for Success (VIB Network), National Veteran Business Development Council, (NVBDC); Disability: IN; NaVOBA Service- Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprise; Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses; Merck Drexel Advanced Leadership Program for Diverse Suppliers; Villanova University; and DeSales University.

Bancroft places financial industry veterans alongside military veterans to deliver value-added content to its clients; and strives to offer best-in-class service to its institutional clients across an array of financial services.

A for-profit company, Bancroft funnels profits, earned through its hard work and extensive knowledge, toward its commitment to helping restore disabled veterans to their rightful place as leaders in our society and communities, but first and foremost as providers for their own families. For this reason, Bancroft facilitates the VTP with as many as four candidates per year.

The Bancroft Veteran Training Program
Launched by Bancroft Capital in 2019, the VTP puts disabled veterans and first responders in a position to develop a skill set capable of supporting a new career as Institutional Traders and Investment Bankers. Bancroft aims to offer paid opportunities to up to four candidates each year. Candidate training includes a rotation among the five business units Bancroft operates and an introduction to back office and operations functions, sales trading and compliance while participating in the VTP.
