The last time I spoke with Jeff Rosenkranz was March 2008, just after he stepped down as head of mid-market banking with Piper Jaffray. Pretty good timing, and Rosenkranz enjoyed semi-retirement while the economy burned.
Now he’s back, launching a new mid-market investment bank called Metronome Partners.

I think it’s the relationships that matter the most, and wanted to do it in a way that can really focus on the quality of advice, rather than the quantity.”
