BroadSpan Capital has announced the expansion of its operations in Latin America through the establishment of a presence in Mexico City and the hiring of senior banker Luis Camarena as Managing Director and Head of Mexico.

In a press release, the firm has revealed that, through these efforts, it will expand its capacity to deliver its core Restructuring Advisory and M&A Advisory services to clients in Mexico as well as further facilitate cross border transactions for clients based in other markets.

Prior to joining BroadSpan, Camarena headed the Mexico operations of European investment banking firm Alantra for three years.

Camarena also worked at both Lehman Brothers and JP Morgan in the Investment Banking groups in Mexico City, Monterrey, and New York.

"We are delighted to bring Luis into the BroadSpan structure. It is rare to find a banker of his caliber that has not only the proven restructuring and M&A track record, but also successful experience working in both the bulge bracket and boutique environments. A fantastic fit for all parties," said Mike Gerrard, BroadSpan's CEO.

Meanwhile, Camarena claimed to be excited to join a team of bankers with "an unmatched level" of experience and track record that has successfully built a true US-Latin American IB platform. "BroadSpan’s top ranked restructuring practice and longstanding leadership in cross border M&A will bring significant value to our clients as we expand in what is the second largest economy in Latin America", he added.
