New financial advisory team creates cross-functional focus on M&A
Recent data shows that over 80 percent of AEC firm owners are now over the age of 50. In response to aging workforce and market demands, Zweig Group announces a cross-functional focus on mergers and acquisitions, ownership transition, and valuation, to better serve the AEC industry.
This new formation allows for a laser-focus on building valuable, thriving companies in the AEC industry and will operate under the strategic direction of managing principal, Jamie Claire Kiser
. She is joined by Tracey Eaves
in valuation services, and director of ownership transition, Will Swearingen
, for a combined expertise as the financial advisory services team. This initiative comes with a renewed commitment to M&A advisory services, including a leadership change, with Kiser returning to the helm of the department she previously led from 2015 to 2018. During her former tenure as director of M&A advisory services, Kiser drove tremendous growth in transactions. She also pioneered the highly successful M&A Next Symposium in October 2019.
New additions to the financial advisory services team include Justin Ramirez, advisor, ownership transition, and new hire, experienced M&A advisor, Jonathan Postell.
Zweig Group has a thriving M&A support team at their new location in Dallas, TX, including analysts Drake Hamilton, Andy Chavez, and James Reasoner. Learn more about Zweig Group's M&A services here: https://www.zweiggroup.com/service/mergers-acquisitions
