Goldman Sachs co-head of M&A in the Americas to retire
June 29, 2017
Goldman Sachs partner Stephan Feldgoise is set to retire, remaining as an advisory director—a title often given to outgoing Goldman executives who don't begin working for a competitor, per The Wall Street Journal. Feldgoise has been co-head of M&A in the Americas at the investment bank since December 2015 and will retire on July 1, per reports.
During Feldgoise's tenure, Goldman advised buy-side and sell-side clients in the Americas on some 112 M&A deals, according to the PitchBook Platform. That includes Feldgoise’s work on Walgreens' acquisition of Alliance Boots and involvement in last year’s $6.8 billion electric & gas merger of Exelon and Pepco, per the WSJ.
Feldgoise reportedly joined Goldman in 1997 with a focus on energy and power companies. Upon his retirement, Matt McClure will remain co-head of Americas M&A under Goldman’s co-heads of global M&A, Michael Carr and Gilberto Pozzi, according to reports.
