Piper Jaffray Hires Lawson as Managing Director


Piper Jaffray hired Doug Lawson as a managing director in its diversified industrials and services investment banking group. He will be based out of the firm’s Charlotte, NC office.

Lawson has experience in the packaging, plastics and paper sectors. He re-joined Piper Jaffray from Lazard Middle Market, where he served as a managing director in its industrials investment banking group. Prior to Lazard, he served as a managing director in the industrials group at BMO Capital Markets.

Prior to BMO, Lawson was in the industrial investment banking group at Piper Jaffray. He previously held senior positions at ABN AMRO and Duff & Phelps Credit Rating. Early in his career, Lawson worked at the law firm of McCarthy Tetrault and as an accountant at Ernst & Young and Coopers & Lybrand in Toronto.

“Doug’s addition demonstrates our commitment to continually expanding our coverage footprint and entering new verticals to serve a broader cross-section of clients,” said Scott LaRue, global head of Piper Jaffray’s investment banking and capital markets. “The perspective he brings from working with companies across various sizes and ownership structures will be valuable as the market continues to evolve.”
