Wells Fargo Public Finance Adds Leaders for Public-Private-Partnership & Southern Region

August 07, 2018, 08:01 AM

Wells Fargo Securities, the investment banking and capital markets business of Wells Fargo & Company, has hired two former Morgan Stanley investment banking leaders: Randy Campbell now heads the Public-Private-Partnership (“P3”) and Sports Financing group, and Jim Perry now leads the Southern Regional group. Edward Boyles will continue to serve as head of the Atlantic Region. Kevin Carney, managing director, and Julie Burger, director, will continue to work on transportation-related P3 financings.

“As we continue to invest in our public finance business, hiring Randy and Jim — both leaders in the industry — will bring additional experience and increased capabilities that we can offer to our clients,” said Stratford Shields, head of Public Finance. “Wells Fargo offers full-service financial capabilities, including underwriting and balance sheet solutions through an integrated Government and Institutional Banking platform, which few other firms offer.” All report to Shields.

Campbell has 30 years of public and corporate finance experience, working on sports-related, general infrastructure and P3 advisory and financing transactions. He previously headed the sports finance investment banking practice at Societe Generale. As head of Public-Private-Partnership and Sports Financing, Campbell will work on buy- and sell-side advisory and financing opportunities in the P3 business, covering municipal entities, infrastructure firms and other sponsors. He also will oversee the firm’s investment banking efforts related to both sports team and stadium financing. A graduate of Columbia Business School, Campbell is based in New York.

Perry, a 10-year veteran of public finance, worked as deputy chief of staff and policy director to Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour prior to becoming an investment banker. Perry oversees the seven-state Southern Region, with a focus on complex financing structures for a variety of state and local government entities. He will also be a part of the P3 investment banking team. His territory includes Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and New Mexico. He graduated from the University of Virginia and is based in Jackson, Mississippi.
