Title: Vice President- Senior Analyst

Firm: Moody’s Investors Service

Age: 37

John Medina entered Moody’s Investors Service a decade ago as a lead analyst on local governments. Two and half years later, John joined the infrastructure finance team where he has led analysis on financing for public-private partnerships, toll roads, stadiums and power projects.

John’s broad exposure across multiple infrastructure sectors combined with a communication style that resonates with issuers and investors has established him as “an analytic leader” in the industry. He leads Moody’s global P3 task force and in this role has advanced the rating agency’s presence in an area of public finance taking on increased importance under the Trump administration.

Investors have recognized John during frequent engagement at meetings and industry events for his ability to clearly explain the complexities of P3 proposals, including intricacies in contractual frameworks, effectiveness of different construction risk mitigants, and risks projects face as they move from construction to operations.

At Stanford University, John was active in musical theater and performed in “The Chorus Line.”

“John brings a deep knowledge and a range of experience in both the municipal finance and project finance sectors, and is recognized by investors, issuers, and financial advisors for his careful assessment of emerging credit topics.” Michael Mulvaney, Managing Director, Moody’s Investors Service
