What led you to a career in the deal-making industry?
My path into banking was a bit unconventional. It started with my interest in healthcare as my wife is a physician and I interned in finance at United HealthCare. I realized healthcare was a good place to build a career, but I wanted to be involved in healthcare deal-making.
Tell us about your experience and what was different during the Covid-19?
Deal-making during Covid-19 required patience and creative deal structuring until companies showed a runrate recovery to pre-pandemic levels. My deal teams have successfully closed 8 deals since the start of the pandemic, with only two of those transactions requiring a holdback until pre-covid volumes are achieved (Summer 2020 deals).
Recent most memorable deal I worked on....
Marietta Eye’s transaction with Covenant Physician Partners (KKR). We went back to market in Q42020 following a process put on hold by the pandemic and achieved a 10% premium above the pre-pandemic valuation.
