About Us

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.

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.

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 and transaction experience, the Cascade team brings the research-based guidance and resources necessary to navigate the complexities of growth management, acquisitions, divestitures, financings and other strategic initiatives.

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