Rothschild & Co opens Chicago office
Rothschild & Co, an independent financial advisory group, has opened an office in Chicago.
Investment banker Eric Hirschfield has joined Rothschild Global Advisory as a managing director and will head the new office.
Hirschfield, who has 28 years' experience as an M&A professional, joins Rothschild & Co from Goldman Sachs where he was a managing director.
Located at 77 West Wacker Drive, the Chicago office will serve Rothschild & Co's global client base, with investment banking expertise in over 50 offices in 40 countries. A core team of bankers has already joined Hirschfield in the Chicago office.
James (Jimmy) Neissa, head of Rothschild & Co North America, says: "We are excited to grow our presence to the Midwest, expanding Rothschild's position as a leading independent financial advisory firm in North America. We see tremendous opportunities to deliver unparalleled global capabilities and perspective to both current and future clients in the region, in collaboration with our offices around the world.
"Eric Hirschfield is a distinguished investment banker with professional roots in Chicago and throughout the Midwest, whose experience and knowledge will serve our clients well. Eric's addition further enhances a Global Advisory team in North America, with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, that delivered a record performance in the most recent fiscal year. It is a pleasure to welcome Eric to the firm.”
Hirschfield adds: "I am honoured to open up the first ever Chicago office for such a respected institution. We plan to be a trusted adviser and permanent presence in the Midwest."
