Jonathan Biele '92 has been named one of the "top 40 investment bankers under
40" by Investment Dealers Digest. Biele is head of Cowen and Company's
capital markets group.
The "40 under 40" article states that Biele "has raised more than $100 billion
in more than 250 transactions during his career. Before Cowen, Biele was head
of equity capital markets at Lazard and a managing director in the firm's
life science banking group, and was part of the equity syndicate and equity
capital markets groups at Lehman Brothers. He was also a vice president and
syndicate manager at ABN Amro Rothschild. Some of his most recent Lazard deals
include acting as co-manager for the IPO of Synta Pharmaceuticals, which
raised $50 million, and the $75.2 million IPO of Xtent. Biele was also
co-manager of newspaper publisher GateHouse Media's $285.7 million IPO in
October 2006. It was Biele who, while at Lehman, priced the first
legitimate IPO following 9/11. He was the bookrunner and lead manager
on Israeli gastrointestinal imaging developer Given Imaging's Oct. 3, 2001 IPO,
which raised $60 million."
Biele earned his St. Lawrence degree in history,
and has been a very active volunteer
for the University, particularly in fund-raising
and for Reunions.
