Livingstone names Mike Jenny Partner, expands Debt Advisory practice
Livingstone is pleased to share it has named Michael Jenny Partner in the firm’s US office.
“Mike has made meaningful contributions to the firm over the years since joining from Houlihan Lokey. We are thrilled to welcome him into the partnership and look forward to continuing our work together to grow and evolve the firm,” said Steve Miles, Co-Founder and Managing Partner in Livingstone’s US office.
Jenny joined Livingstone in 2016 from Houlihan Lokey, where he was a Director in the firm’s Industrial group. In the years since, Mike has leveraged his expertise and deep sector knowledge in several of the firm’s most active industrial subsectors to further build the brand in the UK, Europe and the US. With a deeply ingrained focus on the Metals & Advanced Materials space, Mike has advised on a variety of transactions in the recycling, powdered metallurgy, value-added processing, distribution, and building products sectors.
Most recently, Jenny and the Debt Advisory team advised the shareholders of Jupiter Aluminum Corporation, a US aluminum mill operator, on the acquisition of Spanish-based aluminum producer Grupo Valenciana de Aluminio Baux. The team secured financing for the cross-border transaction in both the US and Spain.
Livingstone also welcomes Marisa Ramirez to the Debt Advisory practice to work directly with Tom. Marisa joins the firm from Lincoln International, where she was an associate on the debt advisory team. Prior to that, Marisa spent seven years at KeyBanc Capital Markets, primarily working on syndicated loan structuring and execution.
“We are excited to have a professional with Marisa’s experience join the debt team. Her background and depth of experience will be an asset to our clients and the firm,” said Tom Lesch.

We have deep industry expertise, and extensive global coverage, with dedicated teams across our offices serving five segments: Business Services, Consumer, Healthcare, Industrial, and Media & Technology and close an average 75 transactions annually.
