Abstract: Hambrecht & Quist (H&Q), an investment bank headquartered in San Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 ) Francisco, has a very unique culture relative to its Wall Street counterparts. Firm members and even competitors describe the culture as entrepreneurial, team-driven, non-bureaucratic, and change-oriented. H&Q's Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 ) unique culture has given it a number of competitive advantages, including the ability to attract high-quality staff, the ability to win business among its target group of emerging growth companies, and Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 ) the ability to maintain below-average SG&A costs. However, competition in the investment banking industry is intensifying in 1997-98 due to an unprecedented wave of mega-mergers between investment banks Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 ) and commercial banks. The new combined banking entities are able to offer customers a broader array of products and services than H&Q is able to offer, creating a significant amount of pressure for H Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 )&Q to sell to, or merge with, another financial institution itself. Industry analysts believe it is not a question of whether, but rather of when H&Q will lose its independence. However Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.) (1955 ), H&Q management believes that "selling out" would destroy the very culture that мейд the firm successful. What action should Dan Case, the CEO and chairman of H&Q, take Author(s): Hart, Myra M.; Tempest, NicolePublication Date - "Doer's Profile" Bill Gates (William H.)
