I have strong experience from Wall Street in corporate finance, private equity, institutional sales and investor relations. Currently with Paulson Investment Company in San Francisco, focusing on private and public transactions. Before that, I was a Partner with ISIS Capital Management, a private equity firm specializing in the software industry, where I was responsible for the firm’s corporate finance activities, including acquisitions and divestitures, as well as fund raising. Prior to that I worked several years at Jefferies & Company, where I was a Senior Vice President and part of the firm’s international institutional sales and trading team. I have also worked at Pacific Growth Equities, Inc. (acquired by Wedbush Securities), where I served as Senior Vice President, Corporate Finance Group and then later as a Partner on the sales and trading desk covering European Institutions. I was also Senior Vice President at Hambrecht & Quist in their Institutional Sales department (now part of JP Morgan), which was a leading technology investment bank based in San Francisco. I started my banking career at Van Kasper & Company (acquired by Wells Fargo), where I performed a wide range of corporate finance services, including M&A, private placements and public offerings.
