Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investing arm of Macquarie Group (“Macquarie”) (ASX: MQG; ADR: MQBKY), today announced the appointment of Jeremy Parker as a Managing Director responsible for the Aerospace, Defense and Government Services industry effort based in New York.
Mr. Parker brings 20 years of investment banking and related corporate finance experience, having worked on a wide-range of mergers & acquisitions and financing transactions across the aerospace, defense, government and information technology sectors. He was most recently at Sagent Advisors, where he served as Managing Director and Co-Head of the Aerospace, Defense and Technology investment banking practice. Prior to Sagent, Mr. Parker was Managing Director and Head of Aerospace, Defense and Government investment banking at Gleacher & Company. Prior to Gleacher & Company, Mr. Parker spent a number of years at Science Applications International Corporation (now Leidos and SAIC) where he completed a range of strategic mergers & acquisitions transactions and principal investments in support of the Company’s strategic and financial objectives. Mr. Parker started his investment banking career at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.
“We are excited to have Jeremy join the team and build Macquarie’s aerospace, defense and government services capabilities,” said Robert Bertagna, Senior Managing Director at Macquarie Capital. “His extensive transaction experience, combined with his deep, C- Level relationships across numerous public and private companies and financial sponsors in the sector, further strengthens our team’s ability to provide the expertise and solutions that our clients are looking for.”
Michael Silverton, Head of Macquarie Capital for the US and Latin America, said: “We are not seeking to be in every sector, but we believe aerospace, defense and government services represents a logical extension of Macquarie’s offering, particularly given continued growth in global air traffic and the private sector’s role in supporting key government functions. Jeremy’s significant experience in his coverage space makes for a great addition to our team, and we look forward to supporting clients in this area with advice, capital markets access and principal investing solutions.”
Mr. Parker received his MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and a BA from Georgetown University.
