If you’ve witnessed any of the major M&A deals across the worlds of media, technology over the past decade, whether you realized it or not, you were seeing the influence and vision of Aryeh Bourkoff play out before your eyes. As the Founder and CEO of investment banking company LionTree, he’s worked on everything from the mergers of CBS and Viacom and Warner Media and Discovery to Verizon’s sale of AOL And Yahoo to Apollo Global Management.

And as he explained to Rich Kleiman and Gianni Harrell on the latest episode of Boardroom’s “Out of Office” podcast, his ability to remain self-aware and grow his network are among the keys to the growth process that’s allowed him to achieve so much success.

Bourkoff also touches on his views on the trajectory of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, NFTs, and the metaverse — and responds to the moment in December’s Season 3 finale of HBO’s Succession in which LionTree got name-dropped.
