Frank P. Quattrone

An investment banker who specializes in high tech companies. During the 1990s, he facilitated the initial public offerings for a number of dot-coms, including Amazon and Cisco. He was convicted of obstruction of justice in the early 2000s for asking for the deletion of e-mails possibly related to IPO spinning, but this was later overturned and Quattrone returned to investment banking. He was born in Philadelphia in 1955.
