I am driven by the opportunity to work on important transactions with intelligent, creative people who are focused on building businesses that are the backbone of the American economy.
Bob raises debt capital and arranges financings for a variety of transactions, including acquisitions, mergers, dividend recapitalizations and refinancings. His clients include private equity sponsors, independent sponsors and private companies.
