CHICAGO – Veteran Chicago-based healthcare banker Brian McGough has jumped to Ziegler from US Bank.

“Bringing Mr. McGough to Ziegler is a significant leap forward – not only for our Midwest presence, but also for our national healthcare investment banking practice,” the Chicago-based firm’s head of investment banking Dan Hermann said in statement. “He has a long track record of successfully capturing, structuring and executing complex transactions while establishing himself as a deeply trusted advisor among clients.”

McGough started in Ziegler’s public finance healthcare banking team late last month as a managing director. He had joined US Bank in 2011 and managed its healthcare practice.

McGough is based in the Chicago corporate headquarters, focusing on structuring and delivery of investment banking products and services to not-for-profit healthcare clients.

He has also held banking positions at BMO Capital Markets and JPMorgan. McGough left Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP’s public finance law practice in 1996 to make the leap to investment banking.

“Bringing Mr. McGough to Ziegler is a significant leap forward – not only for our Midwest presence, but also for our national healthcare investment banking practice,” said Dan Hermann, the firm’s head of investment banking.

McGough said Ziegler’s healthcare franchise was appealing to him because of its “long-term, client-relationship driven culture.”

McGough joins a team of more than 50 bankers located at a handful of the 115-year-old privately held firm’s 25 offices nationally.

The firm quoted 2016 Thomson Reuters data reporting it as the “No. 1 in the country in healthcare/senior living underwriters by issuance and No. 4 by par amount.”

The firm is most widely known for its healthcare and senior living practices, but it also works in the education, religion, general municipal, and structured finance sectors.
