Financial services firm Ranieri Partners has hired two managing directors. The two—Richard Bartolo and Jack Thompson—will be working on a team led by Ranieri Financial Services CEO Thomas O’Neill.
Mr. Bartolo was a managing director in the Financial Services Group at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, while Mr. Thompson joins from The Mundane Funds USA, where he was a director responsible for a master fund and a global value fund. He’s also a former principal at Sandler O’Neill + Partners, the firm Mr. O’Neill founded in the late 1980s and retired from in 2010.
“We are thrilled to have Rich and Jack join the firm,” Mr. O’Neill said. “Rich brings a strong analytical background, excellent client relationships, and broad capital markets transaction experience. Jack has a long history of working on numerous bank transactions from his days at Sandler O’Neill, along with his more recent experience in the hedge fund and private equity markets. I look forward to working with him again.”
Neither was available to comment to The Commercial Observer about their new roles.
