The strategic hire underscores the firm’s continuing commitment to expanding the sector-specific capabilities in its healthcare group, which has now added 14 senior bankers since August 2022.

In addition, “Jed’s arrival allows us to enhance our services for the venture capital and growth equity communities, which increasingly value sector expertise to identify new investment opportunities and grow their portfolio companies.”
