Graeme Quigley Graeme Quigley, Russell McVeagh

Quigley was cited by rival firms as one of Russell McVeagh’s top dealmakers. His profile has been enhanced by his presence on significant deals, including a leading role for NZ’s Genesis on that entity’s selldown. One source described Quigley’s strength as his “technical ability” but another thought that the “trusted adviser” tag was a more apt description. “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,” the source said. Quigley also had a leading role advising Fonterra on its corporate restructure and ‘Trading Among Farmers’ program.
