Dave Brown, Greenhill & Co: New York Giants fans mostly remember Dave Brown for his disappointing tenure as the team's starting quarterback in the mid-1990s. Yet Brown managed to carve out a decade-long career in the NFL, where he also played for the Arizona Cardinals.

Brown had much more success during his days as Duke University's starting quarterback, where he led the team to its first bowl game in nearly 30 years. Today he's a managing director at the boutique investment bank Greenhill & Co, where he works in the firm's private capital advisory group. Prior to joining Greenhill in 2008, Brown was a senior VP at Lehman Brothers' private fund marketing group.
