Dean Bradley Osborne?


Wow, this firm looks legit.

Just another sign that the industry may be shifting away from the BB business model.

Yes, it is Dean Bradley Osborne. Henkel sent out a posting for them more than a month ago. Perhaps they're kicking off their recruiting in earnest now.


And when the Henkel email went out, the firm was known just as Dean Bradley. I guess Nicholas Osborne jumped aboard later.


DBO is fuckin legit

Very impressive that they were already hired so soon for such a high profile engagement.


It's probably too early to tell, but any ideas on what we could expect in terms of their deal flow??


Has anyone heard updates on interviews for the NYC office?


not that there is anything wrong with this firm, but man they look WASPy


Not to mention, they have the cheesiest website. The pictures seem very out of place.


agree w cheezy website

those guys look like dweebs, not sure i'd want to work for them too stiff of an environment vs young / hungry


Yep, it's the Morgan Stanley guys in my guess. I would expect big things from these guys. Especially given that it's a startup, you would probably have the kind of access to these three that even senior associates / junior VPs back at MS hoped for.
