DC Advisory, an international investment bank, has appointed Bill Kohr as its new U.S. chief executive officer alongside a leadership structure which retains former CEO Scott Wieler as chairman of the board.

The firm’s new leadership will include Kohr, current president and deputy CEO as CEO, Wieler, current CEO as chairman of the board, a U.S. executive committee comprising senior managing directors of the business and vice chairmen, a series of senior bankers and business leaders focusing on broadening and deepening DC Advisory’s market penetration.

“This planned next step puts Bill in position to drive the U.S. business in its next phase of growth, and we have every confidence in him as the steward of our culture, and to deepen our U.S. presence – truly making a difference to our client base, domestic and international,” states Hiroki Ikeda, deputy head of global investment banking at Daiwa Securities, which acquired DC Advisory’s predecessor firms.
