Kohl C. Geibel

Senior Associate

Kohl brings a relentless drive and an unequaled work ethic to all that he does, making him a fearless advocate for our EOM clients.

Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Kohl understands what it means to have true “Skin in the Game.”  From an early age, he worked various odd jobs at his family’s businesses, whether it was walking job sites with his father or bartending at one of the family restaurants. Riding the various ups and downs experienced during the Great Financial Crisis of 2008, he has an appreciation for the relentless passion and vigor required to succeed in the ever-changing market landscape.

Eager to add institutional experience, Kohl chose to hone his technical abilities at Jefferies Investment Bank in New York City after graduating college. Within Jefferies’ Global Industrials Group, Kohl focused on M&A and Capital Markets advisory to a variety of clientele. During this time, he received a masterclass in process management and financial modeling, executing on over $5 billion in transactions.

Kohl graduated cum laude from Bates College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Mathematics.

  • What is your best habit?

    I firmly believe that “how we do anything, is how we do everything.” Whether the smallest, most minute task, or something that will greatly impact our lives and others, engaging with a high level of best practices and enthusiasm is core to my ethos.

  • What do you love most about EOMs?

    I have worked with “corporate caretakers”. I have worked with and within large private equity firms. But I have never had more fun than working with EOMs who have endless passion and vigor for their businesses - striving not for the paycheck, but for their family legacy and the urge to create something truly special. Coming from an EOM family, I have the utmost respect and understanding for the ups and downs that are inevitable in the process.

  • Favorite subject in school / high school?

    With a job already secured and most of my credits satisfied, I chose to do something a little different for my final semester of college by taking “Voice & Speech”. Growing up with a speech impediment, public speaking was not always my forte. Throughout the semester I had the opportunity to present multiple monologues, play the lead in a school-wide play and hone various voice exercises I consistently use today. My only regret was not leaving my academic comfort zone sooner.

  • If you could magically invent a drug that would put you in any sort of mood, what mood would that be?

    The quote “the great don’t need to learn how to turn it on, they need to learn how to turn it off,” has always resonated with me. I think we could all benefit from the ability to disengage, relax, rejuvenate and be our very best for the next day.
