(Reuters) – Investment bank Perella Weinberg Partners plans to name Peter Weinberg as its chief executive officer with current CEO Robert Steel set to become the company’s chairman, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Weinberg founded the company with veteran deal maker Joe Perella in 2006. It currently manages assets worth about $13.8 billion, according to its website bit.ly/2Ciff0C.

Perella will be named chairman emeritus, the person said.

Perella Weinberg declined to comment on the leadership changes.

Bloomberg reported in September that the company has hired banks for an initial public offering, which could value the New York-based firm at around $1.5 billion. The company was also preparing to separate its asset-management division ahead of the IPO.

Perella Weinberg has been part of some of the biggest deals in the United States, including the $3.2-billion buyout of SodaStream by PepsiCo and American International Group’s $5.56-billion acquisition of reinsurer Validus Holdings.

The leadership changes were reported earlier by Bloomberg and the Financial Times.
