A Philosophical Approach to M&A

Posted by Admin | January 10th, 2013

As an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois, Cary Kochman took a particular interest in epistemology. While the rigidity of accountancy and the adaptability of thought with regard to the philosophical nature of knowledge may seem like opposites, Mr. Kochman learned to apply both to his chosen field of mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Cary Kochman continued his legal and business education at the University of Chicago and the Booth School of Business, where today he serves on the Booth Advisory Board. He entered the world of investment banking at Credit Suisse First Boston and later at UBS Investment Bank, where he worked closely with Ken Moelis, the former Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette M&A specialist who later founded the boutique investment firm Moelis & Company.

Prior to UBS, Mr. Kochman began his M&A experience working directly for Steven Koch, at Credit Suisse. Mr. Kochman learned to appreciate the intellectual challenge of every M&A deal and the opportunity to strategize over each transaction in order to achieve the optimal client outcome.

Some M&A deals present a high degree of complexity on many levels. While at UBS, for example, Mr. Kochman completed a transaction involving PepsiCo and two major bottlers where the entities held interest as stakeholders in each other. Such deals require careful thought and creativity in order to see them to completion.

Cary Kochman joined Citigroup in 2011 as Head of North American M&A. Since then, he has announced deals across many sectors.
