Brian Deevy

Why Him? Even in a recession, RBC Daniels keeps completing M&As — including The Carlyle Group’s $1.7 billion acquisition of a stake in French cable op Numericable and Completel. Chalk some of that success up to Deevy’s long-standing relationships with most of the MSOs, programmers and other major players dating back to his days working with Bill Daniels. He has a reputation for integrity and knowledge of the financial world and the cable industry.

Worth Watching: It’s all about RBC Daniels’ ability to provide additional capital markets to clients.
