Robert W. Baird & Co. has hired Brian Sapp as a director in its San Francisco-based cleantech investment banking group.
Sapp most recently advised cleantech and renewable energy companies as a banker at Wedbush Morgan Securities. He’s previously worked as a technology banker at CIBC World Markets, Pacific Growth Equities and Thomas Weisel Partners.
“Expanding and strengthening Baird’s capabilities in the technology and clean technology sectors are a top priority for the firm, and we believe Brian will be a tremendous addition to the platform,” said Greg Ingram, the head of Baird’s technology investment banking group.
In October Baird joined the underwriting group for BrightSource Energy’s Initial Public Offering.
