Evercore Hires Goldman’s McAskin for Health-Care Banking

Evercore Partners Inc. (EVR), the investment bank founded by former U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Roger Altman, hired Matthew McAskin as a senior managing director in its health-care group.

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.

“Health care represents one of the largest and most active industries for investment-banking services,” Chief Executive Officer Ralph Schlosstein said in the statement.

McAskin received an undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Michigan and MBA degrees from Columbia Business School and London Business School, according to the statement.

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