Bill Bradley joins Waller Capital Partners from Credit Suisse

Waller Capital Partners, a New York-based investment bank and advisory firm focused on the telecommunications, media and technology sectors, has appointed William L. Bradley as a managing director.

Bradley will lead Waller’s efforts with data centre, managed hosting and cloud computing clients, and will also support the firm’s telecom infrastructure practice.

Bradley joins Waller Capital from Credit Suisse where, as head of telecommunications M&A in the US, he focused on data centre and hosting operators, fixed line companies for enterprises and consumers and wireless operators and was instrumental in building a telecommunications M&A business.

Bradley has 15 years of experience on Wall Street and has advised clients on approximately USD150bn of strategic transactions, including the USD2bn sale of Terremark Worldwide to Verizon in 2011, the largest ever hosting transaction at the time of announcement.

“Bill is a world-class M&A banker who has been among the most active advisors to telecom companies over the past few years,” says Garrett Baker, president of Waller Capital. “His deep experience with data centre companies and extensive senior relationships within the world’s largest telecom operators make him a perfect addition to our team as we continue expanding our coverage of the highest-growth areas of TMT.”

“Waller Capital has built a sterling reputation over its 30-year history advising clients in the media, communications and digital information sectors,” says Bradley. “The firm’s recent successes in telecom infrastructure and its long relationships across the most relevant, adjacent sectors should provide significant opportunities as the industry continues to evolve. I am thrilled to continue providing unbiased, independent advice to my clients from the platform that John, Garrett and their team have built.”

Prior to Credit Suisse, Bradley spent nine years with Citigroup Global Markets, where he provided strategic advisory services and transaction execution primarily for telecommunications service providers, media and satellite companies. He was previously with Soros Capital where he made principal investments across a variety of industries.
