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.
