ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Align Business Advisory Services, a mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and business advisory firm specializing in the lower-middle market, today announced the opening of its new headquarters in Winter Park, Fla. On the heels of a record year of growth, including $500 million in Central Florida M&A activity, Align Business Advisory Services expects to add 20 new jobs over the next two years.
Align Business Advisory Services’ success resulted in several milestones for the firm:
- Surpassed $1 billion in total M&A investment
- 250 percent year-over-year revenue growth
- Hired nine new team members
- Established its presence in Denver and Chicago, two of the fastest-growing regions for the lower-middle market
“After spending nearly 20 years in the corporate finance industry, I repeatedly witnessed middle market companies lacking the proper resources and representation needed to successfully close a deal,” said Dena Jalbert, CEO and founder of Align Business Advisory Services. “I founded Align to specifically meet the complex business needs of companies in the lower-middle market, and our growth is a testament to the demand for those services.”
Orlando serves as a thriving region for the lower-middle market, and Align Business Advisory Services’ new 2,000-square-foot Winter Park office will support more M&A activity for Central Florida companies, as well as national brands. Through its management consulting, business strategy, finance and M&A services, Align Business Advisory Services connects buyers and sellers to facilitate successful transactions.
“With an abundance of young talent driving innovation and a thriving technology community, Orlando is home to an exciting business ecosystem set to become a driving force in middle-market M&A activity,” said Jalbert. “We look forward to continuing our work with Central Florida businesses and expanding Align’s reach to other up-and-coming lower-middle market regions and industries.”
