Professional Experience

I joined the Edgemont team in 2018. Previously, I served as a Senior Associate in the Healthcare Investment Banking Group at Mizuho Securities in New York, where I advised on sell-side and buy-side M&A, acquisition financing, and equity and debt raises in the healthcare sector. Prior to that, I served as an M&A Investment Banking Associate at Lincoln International in New York, where I provided sell-side and buy-side M&A advisory services for middle market companies. I have covered most verticals within the healthcare segment, with responsibility for deal execution and capital raises. Earlier in my career, I served in client advisory and consulting functions in New York at Deloitte Consulting, a strategy consulting firm; GLG, an investment research provider; and Cornerstone Research, an economics consulting firm.

 

Andrew holds series 63 and 79 securities licenses.

  • Personal

    Although I have been a long-time resident of the Big Apple and indeed have spent most of my life on the East Coast, I have studied, volunteered, and worked abroad on multiple occasions, most recently in Japan, China, India, Singapore, and Europe. I enjoy learning foreign languages and am proficient in Japanese. I graduated cum laude from Yale University with a dual major in Economics and History. I received an MA degree in International Studies from the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA degree in Finance and Management from Wharton Business School.

     

  • Family

    I was born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC, and grew up with two wonderful sisters. Our father serves as an ophthalmologist who runs his own practice in the northern Virginia area with the dedicated help of my mother. My older sister works in strategy consulting, and my younger sister is a medical resident at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

  • Passions (outside of work)

    Outside of work, I serve as a Direct Impact Fellow with Echoing Green, which provides seed funding and advice to some of the world’s most promising social entrepreneurs. For the past several years, I have also partnered with founder CEOs of healthcare, tech, clean energy, and social impact start-ups, including serving as Deputy Chairman on the Advisory Board for a Forbes 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneur. I have been active in community outreach programs in the US and Asia. I also serve as the Class of 2008 Co-Chair of the Yale Alumni Fund.

    I enjoy skiing, basketball, hiking, scuba diving, value investing, entrepreneurship, and international travel.

  • Secret Ambitions

    My secret ambition is to scale Mt. Everest or to fly into space and orbit the Earth at ~18,000 mph. Other secret ambitions include traveling to every country in the world and writing a novel.

  • Parallel Universe

    In high school, my favorite subject was Biology, so in a parallel universe, I could see myself as a physician. Alternatively, given my immersion in East Asian studies, perhaps I might have become Ambassador to Japan one day.
