Moelis & Company (NYSE: MC), a leading global independent investment bank, today announced the appointment of Brian Callaci as a Managing Director providing financial and strategic advice to food, beverage and consumer sector clients in the U.S. and internationally. Mr. Callaci will join the Firm in July and will be based in Chicago.

With more than 23 years of investment banking experience, Mr. Callaci joins from Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he was most recently Co-Head of the Consumer Investment Banking Group. Prior to his 17-year career at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Mr. Callaci worked at Salomon Brothers Inc.

Consumer goods companies are seeking incremental growth via acquisitions, private equity firms continue to be highly engaged in finding more opportunities to deploy capital within the broadly defined consumer sector, and shareholder activism remains a potent force to agitate for change and challenge management teams.”
