Here is one piece of news that I missed.
Paul DiNardo has joined GCA Savvian as an MD focusing on software and infrastructure. He is based in San Francisco.
DiNardo was recently vice chairman and head of technology investment banking at Montgomery & Co. Before that, he was at Credit Suisse where he led their global software effort. From 2002 to 2004, DiNardo was also head of corporate development at VERITAS Software and spent 13 years at Goldman Sachs (during his last years at Goldman he apparently co-led the software practice), according to the GCA web site.
It’s not clear why DiNardo left Montgomery but the move to GCA Savvian happened in April, I’m told.
GCA is a boutique investment bank known for its West Coast tech practice. The IB recently advised TouchTunes in its sale of a minority stake to 3i. In April, GCA also advised Dealmap in its sale to Google.
