Linda S. Brown is the Chief Compliance Officer and Director of Operations for Day Hagan Asset Management and is one of the founding partners.

Linda began her career in the financial services industry in 1982, when she joined Merrill Lynch in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She held several positions there, including sales assistant, cashier, operations manager, and registered representative. In 1985 she earned her securities license.

In 1986 Linda transferred from Merrill Lynch to E.F. Hutton, moving from the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania office to the Sarasota, Florida office in 1987. There she began working with Art Day, one of the Day Hagan partners.

In 1993 she and Art were recruited by PaineWebber, which through a merger became UBS Financial Services, where they worked until 2006. That year, she, along with Art Day and Don Hagan, founded Day Hagan Asset Management.

Linda has been the recipient of several Service Quality Awards. In 1993 she earned a Service Quality Award from Shearson Lehman Brothers for writing a Sales Assistant manual, the first of its kind used in that branch office. In 2000 she earned recognition from UBS PaineWebber as an Outstanding Contributor for her time and experience in training all new operations employees. Then in 2008 she earned an Outstanding Service Award from Harbor Financial Services.

Linda graduated cum laude with a B.A. degree in Psychology and Sociology from Wilkes College in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
