Ex-Nielsen Exec Michael Marchesano Joins JEGI
Michael Marchesano, a former top executive at The Nielsen Company, has joined The Jordan, Edmiston Group Inc. (JEGI) as a managing director, announced the New York-based investment firm specializing in the media and information industries.
Marchesano left his post at Nielsen—where he had served as the company’s chief transformation officer since June 2006—just two weeks ago. He had previously served as the president and CEO of VNU Business Media USA (since renamed The Nielsen Company) from 2001 to 2006.
“It is a great thrill for me to join the media and information industries’ leading and most active investment bank,” says Marchesano. “Over the years, I have watched JEGI’s reputation grow and its deal volume increase. I very much look forward to helping the firm expand its footprint in the vibrant business information services sector, which offers its customers a growing number of must-have products and services.”
“We are very pleased that Mike will be joining our team of seasoned investment banking professionals,” says Wilma Jordan, CEO and founder of JEGI. “His wealth of knowledge and deep domain experience in the business information services sector will bring significant value to JEGI’s b-to-b client base.”
