Tech Entreprenuer and M&A Advisor Tony Richardson joins Alexander Hutton as Managing Director

ANNOUNCEMENT | APRIL 2022

Alexander Hutton is pleased to announce the addition of Tony Richardson as Managing Director. 

Tony joins Alexander Hutton from a previous role at Meridian Capital, where he led the firm’s Technology and Business Services practice. Tony has found success in multiple industries; prior to investment banking, he spent over ten years in various roles at Microsoft and co-founded technology consulting firm Xtreme Consulting Group, Inc., which grew to be an international business and IT services firm. Xtreme was regularly recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the state and nation, reaching a size of over 550 employees before a successful sale to Digital Intelligence Systems (DISYS) in 2018.

Tony’s entrepreneurial background makes him a strong fit with Alexander Hutton’s mission to guide founders and entrepreneurs through ownership transitions of their own. Along with every member of AH’s senior leadership, Tony has navigated the process himself and has the wisdom and expertise to advise those on their own journeys. Managing Director James Thompson 
commented, “In addition to having an impeccable reputation in our community, Tony fits the ‘AH mold’ of having built and sold companies.  Like all Managing Directors and Senior Advisors at the firm, he has been ‘in the shoes’ of our clients which allows him to offer a much more informed level of advice”.

Commenting on his new role at Alexander Hutton, Tony added “I’m very excited to join the Alexander Hutton team.  Their 30+ year track record and experience in building and selling companies, is exactly what I was looking for.”
