Silverfern Nabs Ex-JP Morgan Media Banking Head

Mitch Scherzer has joined The Silverfern Group as a managing director. He previously ran JP Morgan’s media investment banking practice.



The Silverfern Group, Inc. announced today that it has continued the expansion of its senior merchant banking team with the addition of Mitch Scherzer, the former Head of JP Morgan’s Media Investment Banking practice.


Mitch brings over 20 years of mergers, acquisitions and corporate finance experience to the Silverfern team. He has worked with Media & Communications companies both domestically and globally across a variety of industry sub-sectors including entertainment, cable television, broadcasting, outdoor advertising, publishing, satellite, wired and wireless telecom and information services. He has worked closely with both public and private companies ranging in size from some of the largest global and integrated media companies to middle market companies operating in single segments.


While his activities in Media prior to joining Silverfern spanned the breadth of advisory and financing services provided by JP Morgan’s universal banking model, Mitch’s specialization is Mergers & Acquisitions, which experience he brings to the Silverfern platform. Prior to joining JP Morgan, Mitch spent thirteen years with Goldman Sachs in both Mergers & Acquisitions and in Goldman’s Communications, Media and Entertainment groups. When he left Goldman Sachs, Mitch was Co-Heading the firm’s initiatives in the Media sector.


Based in New York, Mitch will lead Silverfern’s Media & Communications merchant banking business.


Silverfern Chairman & CEO Clive Holmes said, “Mitch’s joining The Silverfern Group as a Senior M&A Media Banker further demonstrates Silverfern’s unique value proposition to its Clients — combining exclusive access to robust proprietary deal flow with the highest levels of Wall Street advice and negotiating deal experience. At a time of immense dislocation in the Wall Street model, Silverfern continues to stand out as a tangible symbol of strength in deal origination for our Clients.”
