Rogers most recently led the Houston office of TD Securities, where he has focused on advising energy clients, primarily in the exploration and production sector. He began his career as a petroleum geologist before earning his MBA at University of Western Ontario and moving to investment banking roles at Salomon Brothers and then Deutsche Bank before joining TD Securities. In total he has 25 years of investment banking experience, nearly all of which have been focused on the energy sector.
Scott L. Bok, Chief Executive Officer of Greenhill, said, 'Jim becomes the 13th new Managing Director we have appointed this year through a combination of individual recruitment and our recent acquisition. A core part of our growth strategy continues to be deepening our industry sector coverage as part of our M&A and restructuring advisory businesses, and the energy sector is a key area of focus. Jim brings us deep knowledge of the energy exploration and production sector, as well as great relationships in the Houston energy market. His knowledge of, and relationships in, the Canadian energy market will also be helpful to us. He is a highly complementary addition to our existing energy team, and we remain focused on further expansion of that team going forward'.
