Syracuse Group announced today that James Webb has joined the firm as Head of M&A, succeeding Robert Chan, who has led the firm's M&A business for the past decade. James will be responsible for heading Syracuse Group's rapidly expanding investment banking practice in Asia Pacific, Switzerland, and South Africa. He will oversee the firm's activities to financial sponsors and the entrepreneurial community, utilizing Syracuse Group's distinctive strategy, and ensuring the effective execution of investment banking projects and M&A transactions.
“James Webb's past experience on traditional M&A deals is widely recognized and respected. When combined with his expertise and skills, he is a perfect cultural fit for Syracuse Group's objective of providing thoughtful, competent, and independent advice,” said Thomas Baumann, Managing Partner. “We are certain that he will be a great resource to our clients as we continue to expand the M&A side of the company, and we are thrilled that he has joined the firm,”
James has 20 years of expertise in investment banking, closing well over 150 M&A transactions and raising capital for a range of growing and medium-sized firms around the world. He has accumulated a plethora of expertise and experience in the investment banking business that is particularly appealing to the hierarchy of the Syracuse Group. Before joining the Syracuse Group, James focused on the consultancy of M&A for a decade, and was previously a valuable guardian of IPOs, other public finance and M&As.
"Syracuse Group is thrilled to see James join our firm, which leads our fast developing investment banking division, and further strengthens our position as a top M&A expert in Asia.
