“FocalPoint has enjoyed continued success since formation in 2002. We believe it is in the team effort that we deliver successful outcomes for our clients and that it is our culture that differentiates our firm. This award is validation of that culture and I am honored to accept it” commented Mr Radia.

“The entire FocalPoint team is extremely proud that Nishen has been recognized for his success and leadership in our industry,” said Duane Stullich, Managing Director. “Despite the fact that he looks like he’s aged way past 40, we congratulate him on this achievement and know how hard he has worked to earn it. We also look forward to nominating his fellow Managing Directors if and when they launch the 50 under 50 award”.

Prior to FocalPoint, Nishen worked in the M&A group at Merrill Lynch in London, New York and Hong Kong. At Merrill Lynch, he was promoted to associate at age 23, one of the youngest in the firm’s history. Nishen has since closed numerous transactions in the US middle-market at FocalPoint, leveraging his ability to communicate effectively with entrepreneurs while bringing the sophisticated tools and analysis used by bulge bracket firms, enabling him to create optimal outcomes for his clients. He is active in the LA community and is a board member of the VEDC, one of California’s largest non-profit lenders to underserved communities.
