Greenhill Cogent promotes three and loses one

The promotions were part of a raft of advancements at the investment bank across various divisions including its secondaries advisory unit.

Greenhill has promoted three of its secondaries advisory professionals and lost a vice-president in its London office.

Andy Nick was promoted to managing director within Greenhill Cogent, the bank’s secondaries advisory unit, according to a statement. Nick joined the firm in 2008 and leads coverage and execution of secondary private equity transactions for West Coast clients and is based in the firm’s San Francisco office.

He has worked on more than 65 secondaries portfolio sales and fund restructuring, worth over $20 billion, including some of the biggest deals by pensions and endowments in North America, Europe and Asia, according to his LinkedIn profile.

In London, the secondaries advisory unit lost Andrei Brougham, a vice-president who had worked at the firm since 2009, Secondaries Investor has learned. Brougham was responsible for all aspects of client engagements and deal execution, according to Greenhill’s website. Sources tell Secondaries Investor that Brougham left in November to pursue new interests, and Brougham’s LinkedIn profile lists him as having worked at the firm until November last year.

PE Hub first wrote about Brougham’s departure.

Greenhill Cogent also promoted two people to vice-president from associate, including Michael Hu in Singapore and Jeremy Joersz in its Dallas office.

The promotions were part of 28 advancements at the investment bank across its capital advisory and corporate advisory divisions.

Greenhill provides financial advice on mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, financing and capital raising for clients globally. It operates out of offices in 15 locations, according to its website.
