McAskin was previously co-head of health-care services investment banking at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where he was named a managing director in 2007, Evercore said today in a statement. He’ll be based in New York.
Merger and acquisition bankers have pointed to the health-care industry to lead a pickup in global deals. Announced transaction volume across all industries has risen in the second and third quarters this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“We are extraordinarily pleased to have a banker of Matthew’s quality and experience join Evercore,” Altman said.
