The Garros Group founding principal began his Wall Street career with prominent investment banks. This tenure covered the full spectrum of investment banking activities including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, leveraged buy-outs, and public and private securities offerings. This experience led to an approach to investment banking that is characterized by deep sector-specific knowledge, long-term strategic perspective, and advice-driven client service. Garros Group developed an innovative approach in collaborating on transactions with operating executives and industry consultants, whatever the right combination of expertise for the specific client need. Garros Group often combines deep operating experience/expertise of a proven CEO or specialty industry consultant with its own financial/transactional and industry specific expertise on client engagements – a proven, winning formula for success.
Our clients range from emerging growth private companies to established, public company industry leaders. We have been in the forefront of the convergence between traditional and digital media, working extensively with companies that leverage the interaction of data, technology, and new communication channels. We continuously seek to identify new growth sectors and next generation industry leaders. We have advised on billion dollar public company deals for prominent financial sponsors that have chosen to work with Garros Group for its deep industry knowledge, financial acumen and extensive relationships. This is a relatively rare achievement for a boutique firm.
