Haig has been an investment banker for 33 years, nine with Kidder, Peabody & Co. in its Corporate Finance Department in New York and the last 24 operating his own business, H. Haig Brown & Co., in New Canaan, Connecticut. Haig has focused exclusively on the laboratory products industry since 1995 when he began representing Apogent Technologies, a manufacturer of diagnostic products, labware and laboratory equipment, whom he advised on over 60 completed transactions.
Haig worked exclusively with Apogent until 2004 when it was acquired by Fisher Scientific for $4 billion. At that time, he resumed a more conventional investment banking practice representing a variety of clients instead of just one, although Haig's focus remained solely on laboratory products. H. Haig Brown & Co.'s business has been strong since 2004 with 30 different clients engaging Haig to assist them in various assignments, principally exclusive sales and buyer advisory assignments. Haig has closed twelve transactions, totaling over $105 million in transaction value in resent years.
Haig received his M.B.A. from The Wharton School and his undergraduate degree from Harvard University.
