After the tighest race ever....
Jefferies makes it four-in-a-row.
Rich Handler, CEO Jefferies / Leucadia said:
'Winning 'Best Place to Work' four years in a row is wonderful news for all of us at Jefferies. Each of us works hard to maintain our culture of valuing the individual while operating as a team.
'We believe this is the best way to help our clients and create value for our shareholders. It is also the best way to have fun with each other while working in a business with constant pressures, extreme volatility, and frequent surprises'.
It's been quite a 12 months or so for Jefferies, which expanded its investment banking operations in Canada, lead managed the successful IPO of Manchester United, led the rescue of Knight Capital, celebrated its 50th anniversary, expanded its Asia Investment Banking business, and announced a merger with Leucadia National Corporation, one of the largest, best-capitalized and best-known investment holding companies in the world.
Brian Friedman Chairman of the Executive Committee / President Leucadia added: 'Winning this year is especially satisfying as it is confirmation from our people that our combination with Leucadia only served to make our platform stronger without complicating the day to day lives of our 3,841 employee-partners'.
