Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group hired of three professionals within its growth and middle-market technology team, aiming to bolster the bank’s continued expansion into the pre-IPO growth and middle-market public company space in the innovation ecosystem.
The hirings include Jordan Gauthier and Ross Fleck as managing directors to expand client-facing efforts in Boston and New York, respectively, while MUFG also hired David Schlager as a director for its Northern California team based in Menlo Park, CA.
With responsibilities for driving new client acquisition and building partnerships with clients within their specific geographic regions, these new relationship managers will join MUFG’s existing technology banking team in building its reputation as the go-to bank for growth and middle-market technology companies. Gauthier, Fleck and Schlager will join a team of more than 35 bankers, led by Bob Blee, head of growth and middle-market technology banking for the Americas at MUFG, said.
“We are excited to welcome Jordan, Ross and David to our growth and middle-market technology team,” Jon Lindenberg, head of global corporate and investment banking for the Americas at MUFG, said. “These hires build on our recent strategic platform investments aimed at supporting MUFG’s growth aspirations in the middle-market space and further solidifying our end-to-end coverage model in technology banking from earlier stage private companies through large cap multinationals.”
Gauthier joined MUFG with more than 15 years of experience in technology banking in the Boston market. Most recently, she was in JP Morgan Chase’s technology and disruptive commerce group, where she was responsible for cultivating new relationships across the Northeast, advising her technology clients on all aspects of the capital structure, investment banking and treasury management products.
Most recently, Fleck led the expansion of the technology venture debt practice across the Mountain States region to service venture capital and private equity funds and their portfolio companies at Comerica Bank. Prior to Comerica, he ran the technology practice for New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area for HSBC.
Schlager joined MUFG from Pacific Western Bank, where he developed, structured and underwrote new deals for the technology group in California and the Pacific Northwest.
