Logan Williams got a job at investment bank Marathon Capital after serving in the Coast Guard and graduating from Columbia University in 2019.




She said she was frozen out and fired this summer after she complained to others about a "boys club" culture and walked in on a senior employee masturbating in the office.




Marathon called the allegations baseless and said it would fight the suit.




The firm's recent deals include advising Hyliion, an electric-truck startup, in a merger with a special-purpose acquisition company that valued it at over $1 billion.

A former employee at the energy-focused investment bank Marathon Capital has sued the company and its leaders, saying she was fired after complaining about sexual misconduct.Logan Williams said in a lawsuit filed in New York on Tuesday that Marathon's New York office head, Chuck Hinckley, recruited her when she was still a student at Columbia. But rather than the business-development role she was told she was being hired for, she said, she was given administrative responsibilities and paid less than other new hires.Williams said Hinckley yelled at her and made inappropriate remarks, discussing his sex life and remarking that a woman who had been a senior managing director at Marathon "f----- her way to the top." Other managers called her "little missy" and encouraged her to be "more ladylike," her complaint said.She said Ted Brandt, Marathon's founder, also made sexualized remarks, and ultimately asked her if she was a "friend or foe" after she escalated her complaints about Hinckley.
