We are a group of CPAs and financial analysts, led by a former 15+ year partner at global public accounting firms. We share a common bond - a passion for bringing our experience to bear on behalf of smaller, privately-held companies. There are numerous successful companies that have little hope of receiving the client service experience they deserve from one of the global accounting firms, even if they decide that they will pay the corresponding price tag. 

We believe that your company, which you have built and nurtured into something special, deserves to be treated as such. At Escalate Advisory, we offer that unique combination of world-class M&A acumen with real-world integrity and client service.

We will work with you to understand your company's needs and abilities and develop a tailored plan to help you prepare for and navigate this very important process. 


We are seasoned M&A advisory professionals with an extensive global accounting firm pedigree who share a passion for delivering value to privately held companies
