As a top healthcare industry investment banker, Mr. Ditkoff has held senior positions at BAML, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse First Boston over the past 15 years, specializing in investor-owned healthcare companies. Charlie has served as the senior strategist for some of the largest investor-owned healthcare services and private equity firms during his tenure. Bryan Marsal, co-chief executive officer of A&M, said, “Charlie joins A&M as the U.S. healthcare system ushers in a new era and navigates uncharted waters. His background, industry expertise and acute understanding of what healthcare companies, both in the U.S. and abroad, are facing significantly augments our global offerings.” Under Mr. Ditkoff’s direction, BAML led the market in healthcare sector mergers and acquisitions and financings. Prior to joining BAML, he focused on healthcare deals at Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse First Boston.
