Jason earned an MBA from Columbia Business School, and a law degree from the Fordham Law School and he is a CFA charterholder.
"The addition of a dedicated FinTech capability is a strong complement to our recent acquisition of Petsky Prunier and enhances our offering within the dynamic TMT verticals, allowing us to deliver outstanding value for the businesses and private equity firms that we serve," said Jeff Barlow, President, Canaccord Genuity LLC. "We are committed to providing the optimal mix of resources and expertise to help our clients become more globally successful, as we aim to establish one of the most respected and productive mid-market technology practices in the U.S."
