Houlihan Lokey continued the expansion of its oil and gas group with recent key hire Tom Carlson, the global investment bank said Sept. 8.
According to a company release, Carlson, previously with BMO Capital Markets, recently joined the firm as a managing director in Houlihan Lokey’s oil and gas group. He will be based in Houston.
“Tom’s expertise and transaction experience spans the full spectrum across key sectors of the U.S. oil and gas industry, and this breadth of experience in meeting clients’ strategic needs and objectives amid any situation or market condition make him a perfect fit with our client-service-oriented, cross-product Oil & Gas Group,” commented J.P. Hanson, head of Houlihan Lokey’s oil and gas group, in the release.
Carlson joins Houlihan Lokey with more than two decades of experience advising clients across the oil and gas sector on a broad range of transactions.
Houlihan Lokey’s global oil and gas group has advised on more than 100 transactions over the past three years across every key global region. With more than 70 industry-dedicated professionals in six offices around the world, the group focuses on providing services for clients in M&A, A&D, capital markets, capital formation, corporate finance and recapitalizations throughout the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas sector.
“The combination of Houlihan Lokey’s suite of products and services across M&A, A&D, capital markets, restructuring, and valuation, combined with the deep oil and gas industry knowledge, market relationships, and technical team, is a very powerful value proposition for clients,” Carlson said in the release.
Most recently, Carlson was a managing director in BMO Capital Markets’ energy group, where he executed mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity capital raises, and asset divestitures for leading energy companies, particularly in the upstream and midstream sectors. Prior experience also includes banking roles in Citigroup’s global energy group and Jeffries & Co.’s energy group.
“I look forward to partnering with my new colleagues to deliver successful outcomes and solutions as the oil and gas group continues to build on its success,” he added.
