Lincoln International Opens Office in Los Angeles: Adds Steven Wiesner, Senior Vice President, to Lead Office

Lincoln International, a leading mid-market investment banking firm, today announced the opening of its Los Angeles office. Since its founding in 1996, Lincoln International has been dedicated to consistent growth. With a global investment banking staff of more than 100 professionals, Lincoln International has established a strong presence domestically and abroad with offices in Chicago, Frankfurt, New York and Paris.

Southern California represents one of the nation’s most diverse and robust economies and is home to an abundance of mid-market businesses, Fortune 500 companies and a fast-growing private equity community. Lincoln International’s local presence will help to expand and strengthen the firm’s relationships with current and prospective clients in California and throughout the western United States.

The Los Angeles effort will be led by Steve Wiesner, who recently joined the firm as a Senior Vice President. He is a seasoned investment banking professional with strong ties to the Los Angeles financial community. He previously worked for Zuma Capital Partners and Credit Suisse First Boston in Los Angeles and in the Mergers & Acquisitions Group at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette in San Francisco and New York. Wiesner will work closely with Rob Barr, Managing Director and President, North America, to staff the office and deepen client relationships throughout the region.

“As we continue to expand, Southern California offers a multitude of opportunities for us in a wide range of industries,” said Barr. “Our Los Angeles office provides us with a dedicated local presence in a rapidly growing market, and will allow us to deepen our ties with California-based companies and private equity firms who are seeking quality deal execution.”

“Our presence in Los Angeles will allow us to tap into the local market of highly talented investment bankers and selectively add people that fit into our culture and deepen and/or broaden our industry expertise,” said Wiesner.

Currently, Lincoln International focuses on a specialized set of industries including aerospace/defense, automotive, building products, business services, chemicals, consumer/food/retail, electronics, general industrial, and packaging. Additionally, the firm has teams dedicated to private capital raising and restructuring. Lincoln International maintains its commitment to recruiting and retaining the most sophisticated, experienced, and dedicated investment bankers in the industry.
