Evercore loses MD, poaches Park Hill director – exclusive

Sameer Shamsi left the firm in March, while Ryan Rohloff is set to join in the summer, Secondaries Investor has learned.

An Evercore managing director in New York is on gardening leave, while the firm has hired a restructurings professional from Park Hill, Secondaries Investor has learned.

Sameer Shamsi left Evercore in March and is on gardening leave, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Shamsi joined the investment bank in 2013 from UBS and has worked on sales of portfolios of direct interests, fund and GP restructurings, and stapled deals, according to his LinkedIn profile.

It is unclear if Shamsi will remain in secondaries advisory.

Park Hill director Ryan Rohloff will join Evercore’s New York office as a vice-president in July, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Rohloff confirmed his move to Secondaries Investor and declined to comment further.

Rohloff, who is on gardening leave after he left Park Hill in April, joined Blackstone as an associate in 2013 when Park Hill was part of the private equity giant, his LinkedIn shows.

Rohloff’s and Shamsi’s departures follow a high-profile departure in secondaries advisory, with Lazard’s European head of private capital advisory Pablo De La Infiesta leaving the investment bank in early May, as Secondaries Investor reported on Wednesday.

Park Hill did not return a request for comment. Evercore declined to comment.
