Leading Media Analyst Joins Premier Research Firm
New York, NY — November 16, 2018 – Wolfe Research, LLC announced today that highly ranked Media, Cable and Broadcast analyst Marci Ryvicker has joined the company as a Managing Director. Ms. Ryvicker joins Wolfe after 16 years at Wells Fargo Securities and its predecessors, where she was a Managing Director. Ms. Ryvicker was the #1 ranked research analyst at Wells in its internal client and sales polls since 2012 and is currently ranked Runner-Up in Institutional Investor’s 2018 All-America Research Poll. She plans to initiate coverage at Wolfe on approximately twenty-five companies during the fourth quarter.
Wolfe Research’s Managing Partner Ed Wolfe commented, “Marci is a world class person and analyst and we are thrilled to have her and her experienced team join our firm. She has an insatiable work ethic and high intellectual integrity, and her clients’ interests always come first. These characteristics, combined with her exceptional knowledge and relationships in broadcast, cable and media, fit well with the Wolfe culture. We are confident that Marci will continue to stand out in a crowded sector. Marci’s addition, on top of other Wolfe 2018 highly ranked TMT analyst hires—Darrin Peller in FinTech, Steve Milunovich in IT Hardware and Networking, and Rob Lache and Dan Galves in disruptive Auto technology—create a strong TMT research base, from which Wolfe plans to continue to grow in 2019 and beyond."
Ms. Ryvicker noted: “My team and I are thrilled to join Wolfe Research, a sell-side firm that is rapidly growing at a time when other firms are contracting and is solely dedicated to best-in-class equity research. It is an honor to join the incredibly talented and creative group of analysts and sales people at the company. We are also excited to be able to add telecom as a second tranche roll-out in 2019, given the converging trends and consolidation that we expect will continue for many years to come."
Marci is a CFA Charter Holder in addition to a CPA, and received her BS Cum Laude from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and her M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. She currently resides in New Jersey with her two young sons.
