Oppenheimer adds technology M&A group led by Jason Hutchinson

Oppenheimer & Co has appointed Jason "Hutch" Hutchinson as managing director to lead the firm’s technology mergers and acquisitions group. 

Hutchinson joins Oppenheimer as part of a team of bankers that includes Michael Lippert, executive director, and will continue to deliver a wide range of M&A advisory services to the firm’s clients across all sectors of technology, media and telecom.
The team will be based in Oppenheimer’s San Francisco office.
"With their network of relationships and long track record of successfully advising clients across the technology landscape, Hutch and his team substantially expand both our Technology and M&A groups," says Marc Thompson, co-head of investment banking and head of technology for Oppenheimer. "The team brings an unparalleled level of technology M&A expertise to our firm, having advised both large multi-billion public companies on the buyside and represented more than 100 high growth technology companies on their sale to strategic and financial buyers."
Hutchinson has represented and sold companies to major technology leaders such as IBM, Oracle, Cisco, Microsoft, SAP, HP, Broadcom and Intel. He has worked on deals ranging from USD100m to USD20bn, including strategic advisory, exclusive sales, public company divestitures, leveraged buyouts, defensive advisories and fairness opinions. Hutchinson has previously been a managing director heading up the technology M&A group for Piper Jaffray and as a managing director for the technology M&A group at Merrill Lynch.
"I am very excited about our team joining Oppenheimer. It’s one of the premier investment banks with industry leading research in the technology sector as well as a history of working with some of the fastest growing emerging technology companies," says Hutchinson. "Oppenheimer offers its clients tremendous industry insight combined with a full breadth of products and resources to support and advise premier technology companies."
