Evercore Partners has appointed Stephen CuUnjieng as a senior adviser.

CuUnjieng joins Evercore from Macquarie Group, where he was most recently a vice chairman, Asean. He will continue to be based in Asia and will remain focused on advising leading companies in the Asean region.

His appointment complements Evercore’s joint venture with CITIC Securities International Partners, which is focused on China, and Evercore’s strategic alliance with Mizuho in Japan.

"Stephen is a highly respected and experienced investment banker with deep relationships throughout the Asean region," says Ralph Schlosstein, president and chief executive officer of Evercore Partners. "The addition of Stephen reinforces our commitment to building our presence in Asia and providing world class advice to our clients there."

CuUnjieng is an adviser to a number of Asia’s most prominent companies. He has served as the exclusive financial adviser to Lopez Group (including First Philippine Holdings) in the restructuring of its ownership of Manila Electric, as well as on the sale of their 67 per cent interest in MNTC, the largest toll road company in the Philippines. He has also served as adviser to Lopez on PLDT Group’s purchase of an additional interest in Manila Electric, served as the exclusive adviser and sole lead manager of the initial public offering of SM Investments, and served as the sole manager for the convertible bond offering for Bangkok Dusit Hospitals in Thailand.

"I am extremely pleased to be joining Evercore as it seeks to build upon its strategic relationships with CSIP and Mizuho and further extend its successful franchise into Asia," says CuUnjieng. "I look forward to continuing my role as a senior advisor to the world’s leading corporations and collaborating with my new Evercore colleagues and CSIP. I am especially excited to be reunited with my mentor, Evercore vice chairman Eduardo Mestre, whom I first worked with at Salomon Brothers and look forward to working with again."

Prior to joining Macquarie Group, CuUnjieng was managing director at Merrill Lynch Asia Pacific; director at Salomon Brothers Hong Kong; director and investment banking head for the Philippines for Morgan Grenfell Asia; and a managing director for PCI Capital in Manila, Philippines.

Evercore Partners is an investment banking boutique and investment management firm. Its advisory business counsels its clients on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings and other strategic transactions. Its investment management business comprises wealth management, institutional asset management and private equity investing.
