Greenhill Hires BTG’s Carlos Medina for Latin America Dealmaking

  • Medina joins Orozco, ex-UBS banker who joined this year
  • CEO Scott Bok says Greenhill sees demand from region’s clients

Greenhill & Co., the investment bank founded by Bob Greenhill, hired Carlos Medina from BTG Pactual Group to focus on dealmaking in Latin America.

Medina, 43, was named a managing director and is based in New York, Greenhill said Monday in a statement. He was most recently the head of mergers and acquisitions for Latin America outside Brazil at BTG, according to the release.

Greenhill Chief Executive Officer Scott Bok has been seeking to expand outside of the U.S. He appointed Rodrigo Mello this year to join Daniel Wainstein as co-head of Brazil. In July, he hired UBS Group AG’s Mario Orozco, who will work alongside Medina in other Latin American nations.

“Having already seen a positive response from clients in the region, we are further expanding our team by adding Carlos, who has numerous additional client relationships and deep transaction expertise,” Bok said in the statement.

Medina previously worked at Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and McKinsey & Co., where he focused on the same region, Greenhill said.
