Zweig Group, a full-service AEC management advisory firm, is proud to announce that Drake Hamilton and Andrew Chavez, CM&AA, have been promoted to advisors on Zweig Group’s Mergers and Acquisitions team.

"Drake and Andrew have shown leadership in helping scale Zweig Group’s presence in Dallas and our M&A advisory practice,” says Jamie Claire Kiser, Zweig Group’s managing principal. “They embody Zweig Group’s core values and have earned the trust and respect of our organization and our clients."

Hamilton joined Zweig Group in 2018 as an analyst within the M&A services division. In his previous role as a senior analyst for Zweig Group’s M&A team, he was responsible for executing market research, conducting detailed valuation and financial statement analysis, and providing overall support.

Chavez joined Zweig Group in 2019 as an analyst within the advisory services division. In his previous role as a senior analyst within Zweig Group’s Advisory Services Group, he was responsible for cross-functional support to the Strategic Planning, Ownership Transition, and Mergers and Acquisitions advisory groups.

Both Hamilton and Chavez were part of Zweig Group’s expansion to Dallas in 2018, relocating from Fayetteville, Arkansas, to establish the company’s presence there. They’ve been instrumental in the success of that expansion effort.

In 2021, Zweig Group’s M&A team facilitated more than $300 million in closed transactions, and is now looking to grow its team by bringing another experienced advisor on board. If you’re interested in being part of a growing team in an exciting industry, click here!
