Record Year for Global TMT Group at Lincoln International

Team Completes More than 30 Transactions and Adds Industry Leaders as Managing Directors.

2018 was a strong year for Lincoln’s growing global Technology, Media & Telecom Group, with a record number of closed deals on behalf of some of the world’s most innovative and progressive companies – including software, media, IT services and e-commerce.

The team strengthened its senior level expertise and capabilities with the addition of two Managing Directors in 2018 and another this week:

  • Roger Knight, who focuses on enterprise software, particularly infrastructure software, was promoted to Managing Director. Roger previously covered enterprise software and security with KBCM Technology Group (formerly Pacific Crest Securities).
  • Michael Lippert, with nearly two decades of experience in the TMT sector, joined Lincoln in November. Prior to joining the firm, Mike was a Managing Director at Oppenheimer & Co.
  • Bob Lockwood joined Lincoln in January as a Managing Director. Bob’s expertise spans across multiple business models including software, transactional, media and subscription. He was previously a Managing Director at Raymond James & Associates.
