Yinka Branco-Rhodes is the SVP of Investment & Advisory and leads the market out of GQR’s Los Angeles office.
With a deep focus on a specialism, he began his career at GQR placing both commercial and technical professionals from the Oil & Gas industry, within Private Equity firms, Investment Banks and PortCo’s.
Moving away from his Oil & Gas focus, Yinka set out to develop new coverage efforts within high-growth industry sectors such as Healthcare & Life Sciences, Renewable Energy and TMT.
The Investment & Advisory team has not only grown but deepened its specialism within a diverse group of industries. The division boasts a broad network of business leaders within Investment Banks, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, who trust in the team’s ability to connect them with the best talent in the market.
Each consultant on Yinka’s team follows the 100% specialization rule, where all of their time is dedicated to one industry sector. This niche strategy arms them with an unrivaled network and industry expertise.
Born in Lagos to a German mother and British father, Yinka moved to London when he was a child. He later graduated from Brunel University with a degree in Industrial Design and Engineering. Yinka then moved to the U.S. to join GQR in October of 2014.
