New York, March 22, 2018

Moelis & Company (NYSE: MC), a leading global independent investment bank, today announced the appointment of Joel Thompson as a Managing Director providing financial and strategic advice to medical technology companies. Within the med-tech sector, he will focus on therapeutic device manufacturers, clinical diagnostic companies, and clients in the life sciences tools and instrumentation industry. He will join the Firm in May and will be based in New York.

Mr. Thompson was most recently a Managing Director at Morgan Stanley where he led medical technology investment banking coverage and executed more than $75 billion in strategic advisory transactions in his eight years with the firm. Prior to Morgan Stanley, he was in the Healthcare M&A group at Lehman Brothers and Barclays Capital. Mr. Thompson began his corporate and M&A advisory career as a lawyer at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago.

“As medical technology companies across the industry increase their focus on optimizing costs while improving clinical outcomes, we continue to see them re-examining therapy innovation, delivery models and integrated service solutions in ways that are upending historical baselines and creating opportunities for incumbents and new-entrants,” said Jeff Raich, Co-President of Moelis & Company. “Adding Joel’s deep med-tech experience to our exceptional global healthcare franchise will be tremendously valuable to our clients as these dynamics continue to drive activity in 2018.”
