LOS ANGELES—Financial communications veterans Michael Mandelbaum and Jonathan Morgan have joined forces to launch Mandelbaum & Morgan, a corporate communications and investor relations firm with offices in both Los Angeles and New York.
The firm will work directly with the leadership of client companies—across multiple industries including investment banking, private equity, asset management, technology, and manufacturing—to develop targeted communications strategies. Services will include corporate positioning, media relations, crisis communications, litigation support, and counsel on special situations, including mergers and acquisitions.
Mandelbaum and Morgan both previously worked at Kekst & Company. Mandelbaum left several years ago to work at Banco Santander, helping to establish the company’s U.S. investor relations and corporate communications capability and was general manager of Connors Communications in New York before launching his own firm, previously known as Mandelbaum Partners. Morgan joined Kekst after serving as director of research for MSD Capital and practicing law in Austin, Tex.
