Tom Courtney, an investment banker in New York City, had alternating years of extraordinary and then predictable results. This seesaw of highs and lows made it difficult to develop a high performing team and create the clear competitive advantage he sought, in a crowded market place.
He would continue to produce uneven results and have difficulty attracting and retaining the highest quality people.
Tom Courtney becomes Managing Director and Principal of Emigrant Capital, a 150 million private equity fund, while retaining his existing investment banking business.
In the first year, Emigrant Capital invests 20 million in 7 companies.
The Courtney Group develops a team of 8 top level professionals with projects ranging from selling and buying companies to raising capital.
Deal flow increases 600% in the first year.
