He has extensive experience with a wide range of financing structures, including first- and second-lien, syndicated, direct lender and bank/bond financings, cross-border and ABL facilities, and recapitalizations and refinancings, across a range of industries.
"As we continue to expand our debt finance capabilities with outstanding talent, we are delighted to welcome Brett to the team," said Eliza McDougall, Regional Section Head of Americas Banking. "Brett's deep experience in structuring and negotiating complex financings will make him a tremendous asset to our clients, and will allow us to continue expanding our preeminent sponsor and borrower finance capabilities in New York, and globally."
