Rothschild Empire Set to Expand in US Energy Sector

Rothschild Expands Coverage of Oil and Gas Sector in North America


Rothschild announced today that Bob W. Gibson and Paul E. Moynihan have joined the firm as Managing Directors to focus on the oil and gas sector and will be based in Rothschild’s newly established Calgary office.  The Calgary office will contribute towards building Rothschild’s energy practice in North America and will further enhance the firm’s leading role as an advisor to the oil and gas industry worldwide.

Messrs. Gibson and Moynihan, who each have approximately 20 years of oil and gas investment banking experience, were most recently the principals of Mustang Capital Partners, a Calgary-based investment banking boutique that they formed in 2002 and which specialized in oil and gas M&A advisory.  Messrs. Gibson and Moynihan will be joined in the new Calgary office by three of their colleagues from Mustang Capital.

In the oil and gas sector, Rothschild has advised on many of the largest and most-complex transactions globally over the last several years.  Rothschild’s proven track record spans the oil and gas value chain and geographies, with particular expertise in cross-border transactions.

David Drinkwater, Chairman of Rothschild Canada, said, “We are pleased to expand Rothschild’s leading oil and gas franchise into North America through the addition of bankers of the calibre of Bob Gibson and Paul Moynihan.  Their addition to the firm is an important strategic step for Rothschild and for our Canadian practice, enabling us to participate in an industry critical to Canada’s economy, as well as open an office in the country’s western provinces.  We are pleased to welcome Bob, Paul and their colleagues to Rothschild.”

Jim Lawrence, CEO of Rothschild North America, said, “Bob Gibson and Paul Moynihan have advised on many important oil and gas, energy utility and midstream transactions over the past 20 years in Canada, the United States and in other markets.  Under their leadership, we are confident that our new Calgary office will provide clients with outstanding service and advice.”

Messrs. Gibson and Moynihan said, “We are honored to join Rothschild, a global leader in the oil and gas sector and with a centuries-long commitment to providing its clients with exceptional independent advice.  We and our colleagues share Rothschild’s values and objectives and are excited to capitalize on the firm’s unparalleled global platform to deliver further value to oil and gas clients in North America.”
