Jeff Bechtel joins Mitchell Hartley Advisers as managing member

Mitchell Hartley Advisers, an independent investment banking advisory firm, has appointed Jeffrey C. Bechtel as managing member.

Bechtel joins as the firm’s third principal, along with Keith Mitchell and Roger Hartley.

Previously, Bechtel was senior vice president at Jefferies’ financial institutions group, leading the firm’s asset management investment banking efforts in the western US. Before that he was a senior banker at Putnam Lovell NBF, which he joined in 2002.

Earlier, Bechtel spent five years at Bank One, where he advised clients on buy-side and sell-side transactions within the M&A and corporate finance advisory groups.

“We’re delighted to welcome Jeff as our third managing member,” says Hartley. “He is a skilled and trusted adviser who has counseled clients on prominent and successful transactions involving traditional and alternative asset managers, and he shares our vision for creating durable and long-term advisory relationships.”

Bechtel is based in the firm’s Larkspur, California office outside San Francisco along with Hartley.

“I’m thrilled to be working again with Roger and Keith within a boutique financial advisory firm committed to providing first-class independent advice and service to clients,” says Bechtel. “We are well placed to counsel our clients as global asset management transaction activity in the years ahead will increasingly feature cross-border activity led by buyers in Asia, mid-sized managers exploring partnerships to enhance distribution capabilities, and owners of independent firms seeking effective succession and liquidity solutions.”

Mitchell Hartley Advisers was formed in February 2010.
