Deutsche Bank Hires Alex Iosilevich for Media Investment Banking Coverage

13:28 EDT Wednesday, July 09, 2014

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Deutsche Bank today announced the appointment of Alex Iosilevich as a Managing Director and Head of Media Investment Banking Coverage (IBC) for the Americas, within the Bank's Corporate Finance division. Iosilevich will be based in New York and will report jointly to Chris Colpitts and Gavin Deane, Global Co-Heads of Technology, Media and Telecom Investment Banking as well as Emmanuel DeSousa, Head of Internet and New Media IBC.

Iosilevich will join Deutsche Bank from Barclays Capital where he was most recently Head of U.S. Media Investment Banking. During his time at Barclays, Iosilevich worked on several high-profile transactions, including Vivendi on its strategic options for its USD 10bn controlling stake in Activision. He advised the same client on the sale of its 20% stake in NBC to GE for USD 5.8bn and also advised Lionsgate on its acquisition of Summit Entertainment. Additionally, he advised on the USD 1bn IPOs of Nexon and Zynga, two of the largest Technology/Internet IPOs in 2011. Prior to Barclays, Alex held positions in Bank of America's Media and Telecom Investment Banking team and at Liberty Media.

“With the addition of Alex, we look to further strengthen our global capabilities in this key growth area,” said Colpitts. “We have made great strides in the media space by providing our clients strategic advice to stay ahead in a continuously evolving sector.”

Deutsche Bank is a leading player in U.S. Media investment banking and has completed notable deals this year for household names including, Univision, Viacom, Liberty Global and Walt Disney. Last month the Bank also announced the appointment of Alastair Blackman as Head of Media, EMEA from Credit Suisse.
