He embodies values that are central to PWP – trust, integrity, partnership, and intensity. His addition underscores a significant period in the evolution of our German, European and global advisory franchises as we look to be the leading independent advisor to boards and executives. With Marcus joining our partnership we underpin our continued commitment to investing, in a focused manner, in the best talent to serve our clients in the most critical sectors and largest economies in the world.”
Dietrich Becker, Partner and Head of European Advisory, added, “We are excited to welcome Marcus to PWP. His deep experience as a senior leader in finance and his extensive knowledge of the German and European market and wide-ranging global relationships will further elevate our franchise and allow us to expand our Industrials, Utilities, FIG and European coverage efforts. Marcus brings not only a first-class track record as an advisor to senior decision makers but also management and leadership experience to a firm that is rapidly growing into a larger institution. I really look forward to working with Marcus on the next phase of our development.”
Marcus Schenck said, “PWP has been one of the fastest growing and highest quality firms in the advisory business over the past years.
