Why Them? As leaders of one of cable’s top financial advisories, Deevy and Wells never have an un-busy year. They are sought out not only for their financial finesse but for their near-genetic understanding of the cable industry, dating back to the days working with Bill Daniels. In 2010-11, the duo worked with a long list of players including Charter, Knology, Midcontinent, NewWave, NPG, Sunflower Broadband, Suddenlink and Time Warner Cable. Next year, they’ll start off by leading the cable M&A and debt & equity financing efforts for RBC Capital Markets.

Good to Know: RBC is the fifth largest bank in North America by market capitalization and was ranked as the North America’s safest bank by Global Finance magazine.
