Malcolm McGuire – A Career Defined by its Experiences
Malcolm has had a diverse career with a wide range of experience. He grew up in the construction business with his father owning a large general contracting firm in West Texas. At the age of 10, Malcolm was already working all of his summers on a construction crew. Additionally, on the family’s Arkansas ranches, McGuire & Sons were raising registered poll Hereford cattle.
From this point on, Malcolm’s life falls into three distinct phases, all of which prepared him for his life’s work and enhanced his ability to serve his clients.
Church Ministry – Phase I
At the age of 18, Malcolm was already pastoring a Southern Baptist church, one of the youngest ordained ministers in the nation. He pastored churches throughout an eight year educational experience in Arkansas, Texas, and Indiana. Upon receiving his post graduate degree from Southern Seminary, he went on to pastor American Baptist churches in Indiana and Colorado. During these eight years he additionally served on numerous national denominational boards and committees.
At the age of 32, Malcolm experienced a rare eye infection due to stress and tension, having handled a large load of personal and professional responsibilities at a relatively young age. Upon the recommendation of his doctor, he made a dramatic vocational change, accepting a position as a stockbroker with Boettcher and Company, at that time the most prestigious investment banking firm in the Rocky Mountain region. Within 4 years, he was a partner of the firm. Having weathered the disastrous economic downturn of 1973-74, Malcolm is no stranger to tough economic environments.
Investment Broker – Phase II
The capital markets are no place for amateurs. Ultimately it is experience and a record of proven success that really counts.
Malcolm has been a large producer, partner, officer, and manager for four major Wall Street firms. He has also done financial planning for executives of Fortune 500 companies, taught continuing education for CPA’s, and conducted public financial planning seminars.
At all of these four firms, he received honors and recognition for special expertise in sophisticated investment areas as well as a major raiser of new capital.

» Vice-President, Prudential Bache

With over 20 offices in his region, stretching from Denver to San Francisco, Malcolm ranked in the top tier in placing direct investments including real estate, oil and gas, horses, subsidized housing, and airplane leasing.
Consultant – Phase III
The brokerage business was changing as large firms increasingly relegated brokers to “finders of capital“, which the firm would then manage on behalf of the client.
Tired of being a purveyor of product, Malcolm took his experience and began applying it to the world of young emerging companies, where America’s future was being formed and investor wealth was being created.
His business for the last 27 years has been both national and international. The following is a list of cities and countries where Malcolm has been active in doing business and accessing capital on behalf of his clients.:
Denver Los Angeles San Diego Zurich Geneva San Antonio Phoenix Minneapolis Milwaukee Paris Brussels Sand Point, Idaho Atlanta Houston Providence Luxemborg Falls River, Mass. Oklahoma City Boston New York London Beirut Kuwait Dallas Chicago Seattle Saudi Arabia Norway Amsterdam Austin
This list of areas of activity is only representative of a much more all inclusive geographical compilation of areas of client service in the last 27 years.
