Steve has over forty years’ experience as a banker and advisor to corporate and institutional clients with a focus on technology, telecom, media, and financial services. After graduating simultaneously from Harvard Law and Business Schools (JD/MBA), he went to Wall Street where he was an M&A lawyer with Skadden, Arps, and subsequently an M&A and corporate finance banker with L.F. Rothschild. Steve was recruited by Pacific Telesis (now AT&T) to become a leader of its aggressive global expansion in wireless (AirTouch spinoff), which drove AirTouch’s $62 billion acquisition by Vodafone and Verizon. Following Airtouch, Steve became a Partner at Arthur D. Little, where he advised large funds on technology and telecom investments. That eventually led him to co-found MSG Securities to advise companies on M&A and capital raises, where he served as Managing Partner just prior to joining Britehorn. In addition to his JD/MBA degrees, Steve has a BA, highest distinction, from Baruch College, and a certificate, with distinction, in telecom/Internet engineering from U.C. Berkeley.
