MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 5, 2016-- Piper Jaffray Companies (NYSE: PJC), a leading investment bank and asset management firm, is pleased to announce the hiring of Kalan MacGinley and Michael Perry as managing directors in its financial institutions investment banking group. MacGinley is based in the firm’s San Francisco office and Perry is located in the firm’s New York office.

“Kalan and Michael will be integral contributors as we further expand our FIG effort and investment banking franchise as a whole,” says Chad Abraham, global co-head of Piper Jaffray investment banking and capital markets. “We look forward to leveraging their leadership in the space and continuing the momentum we’ve had to-date.”

MacGinley has more than 15 years’ experience as a financial institutions investment banker focusing on both depositories and diversified financial services companies. Most recently, MacGinley managed the western U.S. financial services sector at Macquarie Capital covering international and western U.S. financial services companies where, prior to the Macquarie acquisition, he established the Fox-Pitt Kelton practice. Previously, he was a director at RBC Capital Markets where he played a key role in building the company’s financial institutions group investment banking practice. MacGinley’s relevant experience began with FleetBoston in the CS&D group. MacGinley holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from University College Dublin; a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Missouri; and a Master of Business Administration degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Perry, a veteran of the industry, has over 20 years’ experience as a financial institutions investment banker focused on depositories. He has worked across the bulge bracket and boutique spectrum serving at firms such as Morgan Stanley, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and Sterne Agee. Perry will lead the financial institutions investment banking practice for Piper Jaffray in the southeastern portion of the U.S. Perry received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Business Administration degree, beta gamma sigma, from Columbia Business School.

“Kalan’s placement on the West Coast is strategically important for the build-out of the depositories and diversified practices – we’re eager to have him join the team,” said David Olson, co-head of the financial institutions group at Piper Jaffray.

“As a native of North Carolina and given his in-depth skill set and product knowledge in the space, Michael is uniquely positioned to build out our depository investment banking effort in the Southeast,” added Bob Hutchinson, co-head of financial institutions investment banking at Piper Jaffray.
