Senior Perella Weinberg Banker Woody Young Leaves Firm
(Bloomberg) -- Woody Young, the chairman of mergers and acquisitions at Perella Weinberg Partners, has left the firm, according to people familiar with the matter.
Young resigned in the last couple months to pursue other potential opportunities, the people said, asking not to be identified because the details are private.
A representative for Perella Weinberg declined to comment. Young didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Young joined Perella in 2016 to lead the firm’s telecom and media practice, according to a statement on his promotion last year.
A banker for more than 30 years, with stints at Lazard Ltd., Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers, Young has advised AT&T Inc. on many of its biggest transactions. He led the company’s acquisition of Time Warner, as well as Liberty Broadband Corp.’s acquisition of GCI Liberty Inc..
Perella Weinberg, founded by Peter Weinberg and fellow dealmaker Joe Perella, went public in June in a merger with a blank-check company. The firm has advised on deals this year including AT&T’s sale of media assets to Discovery Inc.
