NEW YORK (Reuters) - Adam Taetle, a senior managing director at Evercore who advised on several transactions in the consumer & retail industry, will be leaving the investment bank, according to people familiar with the matter.

Taetle, who joined Evercore in 2018, recently advised on notable deals including Campbell Soup's $2.7 billion acquisition of Sovos Brands last year, the initial public offering (IPO) of Bellring Brands, and Pinnacle Foods' sale to Conagra Brands.

Reuters could not immediately determine where Taetle is headed.

Evercore declined to comment. Taetle could not be reached for comment.

Prior to his stint at Evercore, Taetle was co-head of the global consumer & retail group at Barclays and a managing director at Goldman Sachs.
