Moelis & Company and Wharton Develop Custom Leadership Development Program

Annual Program for Firm’s Future Leaders to be held July 24-26 on Wharton’s Campus

Philadelphia, July 21, 2016

Moelis & Company and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania today announced a new leadership program targeting Moelis’ mid-level and recently promoted bankers. Moelis & Company is a leading global independent investment bank that provides strategic advice and solutions to corporations, governments and financial sponsors.

The Moelis@Wharton: Leadership Development Program will host its inaugural session July 24-26 on Wharton’s Philadelphia campus. Thirty of Moelis & Company’s recently promoted vice presidents, senior vice presidents and managing directors will participate in several learning sessions focused on building and leading high-performing teams and sharpening negotiation tactics, with plenty of opportunities to network and broaden their perspectives.
The program also features experiential learning exercises as well as individualized coaching sessions. At the conclusion of the three-day program, participants will have an individualized leadership action plan tailored to their specific roles at the firm.

Wharton Executive Education worked closely with Moelis & Company’s learning and executive leaders to develop the custom program.

“Moelis & Company has created a culture of developing their leaders from within, and this program will help them continue their ongoing investment in talent by giving their newest leaders critical skills for building strong teams and long-term relationships with their clients,” says Kenneth L. Shropshire, the David W. Hauck Professor and Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at Wharton and the academic director of the Moelis program. Shropshire also serves as an independent member of Moelis & Company’s Board of Directors.

Moelis & Company has grown rapidly since its founding in 2007 and went public in April 2014. The global independent investment bank employs about 650 staff, including more than 100 managing directors, in 17 offices worldwide. Over 20% of the firm’s current MDs are internal promotes.

“We have always believed that the most exceptional talent and leadership exist within our firm. As Moelis & Company continues to grow, we remain focused on creating new ways to motivate, develop, and challenge our people. This program will further strengthen the leadership and team building skills our MDs, SVPs, and VPs already possess, while granting them access to the resources of one of the nation’s top business schools,” notes Ken Moelis, Chairman and CEO of Moelis & Company and Wharton Alumnus. “The best way to attract and retain top talent is to invest in their personal and professional growth. Empowering our recently promoted bankers with these valuable skills will allow them to have a greater impact in their new roles and ultimately become the future leaders of our firm.”

Moelis & Company Announces the Appointment of Adrian Goodisman as a Managing Director Providing Financial and Strategic Advice to Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Clients

New York, July 05, 2016

Moelis & Company (NYSE: MC), a leading global independent investment bank, today announced the appointment of Adrian Goodisman as a Managing Director providing financial and strategic advice to upstream oil and gas companies. He will join the Firm in September and will be based in Houston.

Mr. Goodisman joins Moelis & Company with over 25 years of investment banking and technical experience in the Oil & Gas Exploration & Production (E&P) sector. He was most recently a Managing Director at Scotiabank where he served in a variety of positions including Co-Head U.S. of Scotia Waterous – the firm’s oil and gas investment banking division. Prior to Scotiabank, Mr. Goodisman was a Managing Director and President at Waterous & Co USA, the predecessor to Scotia Waterous, where he was responsible for building out the firm’s U.S. practice. Before Waterous & Co, he was a Senior Vice President at Ziff Energy Group, where he opened the company’s U.S. office in Houston. Mr. Goodisman also gained extensive technical experience earlier in his career serving in a variety of roles and locations at Phillips Petroleum.

“Adrian’s deep client relationships, particularly in the E&P space, will be a perfect complement to our growing energy coverage franchise,” said Jeff Raich, Co-President of Moelis & Company. “Given the improvement in oil and gas prices from the start of the year, as well as the availability of capital targeting energy investments, we expect to see an increase in M&A activity. In particular, we expect significant acquisition and divestiture activity at the asset level, as companies look to re-balance their portfolio. Adrian’s years of investment banking experience and technical expertise will be incredibly beneficial as our upstream oil and gas clients seek advice on how to adapt to this dynamic.”

Mr. Goodisman is the third Managing Director to join Moelis & Company’s growing energy coverage business in Houston over the past 12 months. In March, the Firm announced the appointment of Brian Jinks to cover midstream oil and gas companies and Master Limited Partnerships and last year David Cunningham was appointed to cover oil and gas clients, primarily in the service sector.
