Murray Devine Adds Business Development Pro

Murray Devine has hired Mark Emrich as its newest Managing Director. Mr. Emrich will lead Murray Devine’s New York business development activities with an emphasis on alternative investment firms and financial service intermediaries including investment banks, law firms, accounting and audit firms, and insurance companies.

Mr. Emrich has more than 20 years of experience in investment sales and business development at financial service firms across multiple asset classes and investment strategies. Prior to joining Murray Devine, Mr. Emrich was a Managing Director at Anagenesis Capital Partners, a New York-based investor in the healthcare and consumer sectors, where he focused on business development as well as developing relationships with institutional investors.

“I believe there is a tremendous market opportunity to grow Murray Devine,” said Mr. Emrich. “Rapid growth of the private equity and private credit markets, increased regulatory scrutiny on valuation practices and demand for independent advice provides a strong macro backdrop for the independent valuation advisory industry. My background combined with the firm’s leading brand and deeply experienced valuation advisory team uniquely positions Murray Devine to capitalize on these trends. I look forward to building upon the firm’s 30-year track record of success.”

Prior to his time at Anagenesis, Mr. Emrich led business development for Pembroke Hobson, a Philadelphia-based private equity real estate investment firm. He has also held senior investment sales roles at CIBC and Scotiabank as well as Brown Brothers Harriman. Mr. Emrich has an MBA from the New York University’s Stern School of Business and a bachelor’s degree from Keene State College.

“Mark’s deep relationships – particularly in the alternative investments sector – provide a solid platform for our continued success and next level of growth in the New York region,” said Rob Tribuiani, Managing Director and Head of Business Development for Murray Devine.

Murray Devine is a provider of financial opinions, financial and portfolio valuations and related valuation advisory services for private equity firms, business development companies, private debt and hedge funds, commercial banks and corporations. The firm was founded in 1989 and is headquartered in Philadelphia with an additional office in New York (www.murraydevine.com).

“In further building out our senior sales and management teams, we couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Mark,” said Dennis Murray, President of Murray Devine. “Mark’s extensive experience with capital markets and marketing private funds to alternative investors brings a new and exciting perspective to our firm that will resonate well with our clients.”
