About Us


With 220+ completed transactions, we are a highly established middle market investment banking firm led by a team of former operators that have built and sold companies.

We proudly support founders, entrepreneurs, and family businesses as they navigate their company's most important journey.


Since 1986, we have advised our clients with the skill of seasoned investment bankers and the empathy and understanding of former business operators.

Our clients represent a wide range of industries including manufacturing, technology, business services, healthcare, home services, consumer and logistics.

Trusted Partners

Our legacy is entirely built upon the success of our clients. They come to us for an understanding of their industry and market trends, but stay for who we are, a strong group of committed colleagues with deep connections and operating experience. A hallmark of how we work is our integrity and trust toward each other. We bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and buyers to reach positive outcomes that prioritize culture and structure in addition to purchase price.
