Boutique corporate finance house IBI has hired Liam Kiely from Cantor Fitzgerald to head its technology and healthcare division, advising on M&A and capital-raising, including initial public offerings (IPOs).

IBI Corporate Finance has also promoted James Doody from within the firm to head its growth capital division.

Liam Kiely is joining IBI from Cantor Fitzgerald and previously worked in Goodbody Corporate Finance and Société Générale.

He has raised several hundred million euro for Irish technology companies in recent years, arranging funding at all stages of the cycle from seed capital to IPO.

James Doody has been appointed as a director and head of growth capital at IBI where he has worked since 2013.

He was previously with Bank of Ireland Global Markets. In his career with IBI he has raised capital for such firms as Integrated Facility Solutions and ATXA Therapeutics, and advised on sale transactions at Pathfinder Consulting, Top Oil, and Vantage Resources.

IBI chief executive Tom Godfrey said the appointments come as the firm was experiencing significant growth across the business. 

“Companies are quickly moving on from Covid and progressing with ambitious growth plans, and there is particular demand from fast-growing companies to secure capital to support their plans. Liam and James will play a key role in developing innovative and cost-effective solutions to  underpin growth,” he said.
