“Evercore has built a world-class equity capital markets underwriting and advisory business, including serving as an active bookrunner on the two largest common equity offerings of 2020: Danaher’s $3.3 billion equity offering and PNC’s $14.4 billion sale of its common shares of Blackrock,” Ralph Schlosstein, president and CEO, said. “The addition of John to our team will enable us to continue to strengthen and to build on this success and to enhance dramatically our capabilities in the strategically important technology sector. John’s commitment to providing trusted independent advice to clients and to working with the owners and managements of rapidly growing technology companies will significantly enhance our ability to serve clients in this incredibly important sector.”
