Welcome to Episode 3 of The Investment Banking Leaders Podcast, hosted by Altrum’s Deal Toy Global Head, Peter Nieberg! Our mission is to connect as many of you with successful investment banking leaders as possible.
This week’s special episode features our next guest, none other than Scott Wieler, Founder & Chairman of DC Advisory in Washington, DC. As the Founder and Chairman of Signal Hill in 2002, acquired by Daiwa in 2018, Scott has been in finance for over 35 years and has no doubt secured himself as one of the industry’s best and brightest. Scott has been instrumental in hundreds of transactions, producing billions for clients in M&A.
Upon moving to New York as a brand-new member of the industry, Scott tells us that he didn’t have two nickels to rub together. His journey through the IB world is truly a one-of-a-kind success story full of hard work and determination; just 5 years after his arrival in the Big Apple, he was in a completely different situation, thriving and succeeding.
