About Us

The Cascade Difference

Cascade Partners is an investment banking and private investment firm serving entrepreneurs, businesses and investors in the middle market. While some firms use terms like “client” or “customer,” we prefer to think of you as a critically important partner, working toward common goals to achieve your vision.

Select Industries

Sell Side M&A Advisory

We can define available options, but why stop there? We go a step beyond by presenting the implications and what they mean to shareholders, management team and employees.

Restructuring & Performance Improvement Advisory

Whether we’re taking a client’s business to the next level, advocating for them with investors or lenders, or driving more cash flow – we’re the partner to help make it happen.

Buy Side
M&A Advisory

Our proven proactive approach starts with strategy development. We help refine priorities and critical factors to impact a targeting plan.

Financing & Recapitalizations

Get the independent advise and industry experience that will enable you to secure the equity and debt capital you need to meet your goals.

What’s your goal? That’s ours too!

We take the word “Partners” in our name seriously. Partnering with our clients, we first work with them to establish what their ultimate goals are — whether it’s growing the business, financing or even ultimately retiring. We then work our hardest to advocate for them throughout the engagement and beyond.

The Cascade Partners’ team is made up of investment bankers with extensive experience as entrepreneurs, business owners and operators, investors and board members, providing rich experience from both sides of the table.

Drawing on this deep management, investment, operations and transaction experience, the Cascade team brings the research-based guidance and resources necessary to navigate the complexities of growth management, acquisitions, divestitures, financings, restructuring, performance improvement, and other strategic initiatives.

Your goal is our goal – Let’s achieve it together.
