On Explosive Growth Track, Los Angeles Investment Banking firm, WestPark Capital adds Senior Vice-President, Mergers & Acquisition
Earning its reputation for revolutionizing the IPO process with its fast-track formula of bringing companies to the public markets, WestPark Capital, Inc., (www.wpcapital.com) continues its alignment with top-tier financial services talent with its recent hire of Jacob Dubois, an investment banking professional with a broad depth of experience in multiple sectors, as Senior Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions. “As more successful financial services industry veterans such as Mr. Dubois join WestPark Capital, the company further enhances its positioning in the market to provide much needed capital to private companies seeking access to public funds,” says Richard Rappaport, CEO of West Park Capital. Rappaport is the creator of the “WRASP”, a revolutionary financial services process in which a company becomes publicly traded through a share exchange and trades directly onto a senior exchange, either the AMEX or the NASDAQ, completely bypassing the OTCBB. WestPark Capital, Inc., is further developing an international reputation specializing in helping Chinese companies secure public funds.
A magna cum laud graduate from the Whittemore School of Business & Economics at the University of New Hampshire, Mr. DuBois’s experience during the past decade includes work on numerous deals in the consumer products, financial services, and healthcare industries with an aggregate transaction value in excess of $750 million. Having earned a reputation as a savvy investment banking dealmaker with extensive experience in leading all phases of the transaction process, Mr. Dubois will be utilizing his highly developed skill sets in enterprising new investment banking transactions for WestPark Capital, Inc.
“As access to capital markets has contracted during the past few years, and as the challenges of bringing companies public has increased, WestPark Capital’s model of bringing companies public has become more important than ever not just to companies seeking funding to grow their organizations, but also further establishes WestPark’s WRASP as the most innovative new public funding process in the financial services industry,” says Dubois, who is a member of the Association for Corporate Growth, the Middle Market Investment Banking Association, and the Alliance of Mergers and Acquisitions Advisors.
