Along with Pip Greenwood
, who appears later in this list, Graeme Quigley was cited by rival firms as one of Russell McVeagh
’s top dealmakers, and his profile has been enhanced by his presence on some significant deals, the most recent of which is his leading role for Genesis on that entity’s selldown. One source described Quigley’s strength as his “technical ability”, but another thought the “trusted adviser” tag was the most apt description here. “He would be seen in NZ as one of those people that the large corporates know as a trusted adviser, pulling in extremely complex deals and doing the hard yards,” the source said. “He has enormous energy levels and is seen as a person with huge integrity.” Quigley also had a leading role advising Fonterra on its corporate restructure and Trading Among Farmers program.
