NEW YORK & SAN FRANCISCO -- September 5, 2023 -- Ducera Partners (“Ducera” or the “Firm”), a leading investment bank, today announced that Christopher Grubb has joined the Firm’s new San Francisco office as a Partner, to lead its U.S. Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”) practice and expand Ducera’s strategic advisory capabilities.

Mr. Grubb is a distinguished investment banker with expertise advising on a broad range of M&A and strategic advisory mandates. Bringing more than twenty years of experience, he most recently served as the Head of M&A and Restructuring for the Western Region of Greenhill, where he advised clients on M&A, financing, and restructuring mandates. He previously served as Co-Head of U.S. M&A and also spent four years as Greenhill’s Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Grubb earned an MBA from Columbia Business School and a BS in Engineering from Cornell University.

Michael Kramer, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Ducera Partners, said, “Ducera continues to evolve as a full-service investment bank and strategic advisory firm and we are focused on building out our capabilities around strategic M&A engagements to both enhance and complement our existing areas of expertise. Chris’s impressive background and differentiated transaction execution experience spanning the healthcare, technology and consumer sectors align well with our historical areas of focus, and I believe makes him an ideal advisor for our Firm in support of clients’ needs.”

Mr. Grubb added, “Ducera possesses an enviable track record of success advising on large, complex, and transformational transactions and delivering optimal results on behalf of its clients. As the M&A environment continues to evolve and companies increasingly seek to fund transactions outside of the traditional capital markets, I believe there will be growing opportunities to partner with a broad array of companies that value Ducera’s unique approach to creating value and are focused on building long-term strategic advisory relationships to help them achieve their financial goals. I am looking forward to working closely with Ducera’s impressive team.”
