There's a new player in Silicon Valley dealmaking.
Tokyo-based Mizuho has been expanding its investment banking team in the US this year, and has just added two new names to its roster in tech banking.
John Jansen has joined the firm as head of technology M&A banking, and Sugeet Madan has joined as a managing director in technology coverage banking. They join Matt Upton, who has signed on as head of software investment banking, in making the move to the Japanese bank.
Jansen and Upton will report to Rich Gallivan, head of tech, media, and telecom (TMT) banking, and focus on winning business on strategic transactions, including global M&A and capital raising deals. Madan will report to Avrum Spiegel, head of technology banking coverage, with a focus on overall client relationship management.
