David Hunt joined investment bank Greenhill as co-head of Corporate Advisory for the Industrial sector, based in New York.

He will focus primarily on the capital goods, environmental services and industrial technology subsectors, as well as on large multi-line industrial companies.

Hunt was most recently managing director and head of investment banking coverage for the capital goods sector at UBS, where he spent 20 years, focusing on industrials for nearly all that time. He began his career at Dillon Read before it was acquired by UBS.

Scott L. Bok, CEO of Greenhill, said, “The industrial sector has been a strong performer for our firm, both in the U.S. and around the world, highlighted by our involvement in a number of landmark domestic and cross border M&A transactions in the past couple years. We are very pleased to enhance our already strong U.S. industrials team with the addition of a senior banker of David’s stature. He brings us a client base and sector knowledge that is highly complementary to that of our existing global sector team, which should allow us to build on our historic strength to develop an even larger business advising leading industrial companies on strategic transactions.”

Greenhill is an independent investment bank entirely focused on providing financial advice on significant mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, financings and capital raising to corporations, partnerships, institutions and governments globally.
