New York, July 5, 2016—Greenhill & Co., Inc. (NYSE: GHL), a leading independent investment bank, announced today that Mario Orozco has joined the Firm as a Managing Director based in New York and focused on covering the Latin America region outside of Brazil.
Mr. Orozco, age 47, has approximately 20 years of investment banking experience. Since 2008, Mario established and most recently served as the head of an investment banking practice advising shareholders, companies and family-owned businesses throughout Latin America for UBS. Prior to joining UBS, Mario held various senior investment banking roles at Bank of America and First Boston (Credit Suisse), and earlier in his career held key finance positions with leading companies, including Philip Morris International and FEMSA in Mexico.
Scott L. Bok, Chief Executive Officer of Greenhill, said, "The importance of global reach and connectivity has only increased in the twenty years since the founding of our Firm, which has led us to establish 15 offices across five continents during that time. With Mario, we are now able to leverage our industry sector coverage and M&A and restructuring expertise across the Spanish-speaking countries of the Americas. Importantly, we now offer clients full coverage across Latin America, as Mario’s practice complements the presence we established in Brazil since the 2013 founding of our São Paulo office, where we have announced five transactions in recent months. We are excited about further expanding our coverage efforts in such dynamic and growing markets."
"I am pleased to be joining a leading independent advisory firm with global industry sector expertise, and I am excited about leading its expansion into the broader Latin American region outside of Brazil. I look forward to building a practice that fully complements Greenhill’s unique global footprint," Mr. Orozco commented.
