More and more bankers consider strengthening their position in the corporate world. One fine day in November 2002, just as Wall Street, New York City-based bankers were trying to time the next round of layoffs, Philip Mintz finished rendering a fairness opinion on a small real estate merger, provided some details, and gave notice to his boss at Merrill Lynch & Co. To leave an M&A banker's job at Merrill when co-workers were being dismissed might leave the impression that Mintz had an irresistible offer from a competitor. But that wasn't the case. Mintz had decided to bail on Wall Street altogether, heading off to become a senior vice president, global business development for GE Real Estate, a business unit of GE commercial Finance. Mintz says he learns new things all the time, not only about the business and from being in one of the world's most rigorous training grounds, but also about teamwork, which has a different flavor at GE Real Estate than it does on Wall Street.
