Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Cristina Alesci profiles Anthony Noto, partner and co-head of global media at Goldman Sachs and explains how he came to win over Twitter and become lead banker of their IPO. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

He is number two to mike mckee.

There is something for everyone.

He is an almost -- an all- american football player.

He graduated in mechanical engineering.

This guy's resume is goldplated.

He does not get but better than this.

What i am hearing from tech clients, he is also into technology.

He is very much a geek in the best form of the word.

That really put him up against -- go-ahead.

I don't mean to interrupt.

This would be a more measured deal.

Is that the belief?

Believe that is what is endearing.

How did he get the twitter ipo?

Clicks that is an interesting story.

At that -- that is an interesting story.

Goldman sachs has a reputation of coming in later when it came to ipos and demanding a spot in a because they are goldman sachs.

Anthony noto was keen on winning a big deal.

He was in there for any other bank, pitching, back in april he was having discussions with the executives of twitter.

Is this a profitable deal for goldman?

Badge of honor.

They do not have any kind of specialty like they do with the facebook offering.

Airing the facebook offering they got private placement before the ipo actually happened.

There is no deal like that emerging.

We could see the standard fee come down a little bit because you do see the seven percent come down to three percent or four percent.

The roadshows two and a half weeks?

Two and a half weeks potentially.

Goldman sachs will be on it.

You will have the twitter executives.

This is a very experienced management team.

I am worried about chicken or pasta.

Is it like a steve jobs kind of thing?

Clicks it depends on the client.

It depends on if you are going to have a one-on-one meeting.

Those are the meetings twitter wants to have with investors.

Those are the meetings that can seal the deal, not the big rooms that you are talking about.

They wanted to be able to close the investor on that meeting.

Ed is ultimately how goldman sachs will be judged.

Thank you so much.

She is roadshow bound on twitter ipo.
