About Greenhill & Co., Inc.

Greenhill calls itself "a unique investment banking firm," and to be sure, it follows a model quite unlike the structure of its behemoth competitors. At Greenhill, independence is the guiding philosophy; because it's not part of a larger financial institution, the firm avoids the conflicts of interest inherent in those firms. Greenhill's second rule is focus. It has no research, trading, or lending divisions to distract from its advisory work, which includes mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, financings, capital raisings, and secondary fund investment sales. 

The firm is a relatively young one by Wall Street standards: about 21 years old. In 1996, Robert F. Greenhill, former head of Smith Barney and former president of Morgan Stanley, struck out on his own and founded an eponymous boutique firm. He led the company for 11 years before stepping down as CEO in October 2007, but he remains chairman of the board and continues to actively work on deals. 

Today, Scott Bok is the firm's CEO. Although Greenhill went public in 2004, it's still closely held by its managing directors. Greenhill is headquartered in New York, with additional offices in London, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. It employs just over 350 people.
