Brean Capital hires Peter McNierney as executive managing director
Brean Capital has appointed Peter McNierney as an executive managing director and a member of the firm’s operating committee.
McNierney’s main areas of responsibility will be the investment banking department and equity capital markets.
“Since recapitalising the firm in 2012, we have expanded Brean Capital beyond its traditional equity capital markets and investment banking focus to include trading and structuring a full range of fixed income products. To that end, in the last six months we have hired 70 professionals, opened over 1,100 new institutional clients and delivered a record fourth quarter for the firm,“ says Robert M Fine, chief executive of Brean Capital. “The key to our success has been our ability to attract and retain some of the best professionals in the industry. I have worked very closely with Peter for over eight years and am excited to have him join our team. We both believe that the best firms in our industry combine personal integrity, a commitment to excellence, and a shared vision of client service across a full suite of products. Peter has extensive experience in a diverse range of industries and financial services products and I look forward to having someone of his calibre helping drive the continued growth of the firm.”
McNierney says: “As a privately-held, employee-owned investment bank, Brean Capital combines the best attributes of successful firms, enabling its professionals to devote all of their attention and efforts on delivering value-added solutions to their clients. Rob has assembled a terrific group of professionals, a strong capital base and a diverse set of products and services necessary to serve the needs of the firm’s institutional investor and corporate client base. I am very happy to be Rob’s partner again as we pursue this opportunity.”
McNierney previously was interim CEO, president and chief operating officer and a member of the board of directors of Gleacher, a publicly-traded investment bank. Prior to that, he was CEO and head of investment banking for the predecessor of Gleacher. Earlier in his career, he was a managing director in the healthcare and communications technology investment banking groups at Robertson Stephens and a vice president in the healthcare investment banking group at Smith Barney, Harris, Upham.
During his 23 year career, McNierney has been involved in several hundred equity and debt public offerings, private placements and merger & acquisition and strategic advisory assignments for public and private companies in a diverse range of industries.
