Overview of the Firm
We are a private equity and investment banking firm based in New York City and Miami. Andro Nodarse-León and Benjamin Mayer established our firm in 2005 after having respectively been at Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (“KKR”) and Tishman Speyer. They began their careers at Goldman, Sachs & Co. in New York City and Meridian Property Company in Palo Alto, respectively.
Our professionals come together from the world’s top private equity and investment banking firms. During their careers they have completed over $120 billion in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and debt and equity financing transactions as both investors and advisors across a wide array of industries, including: business services, construction, consumer products, education, energy, entertainment, forest products, health care, hospitality, infrastructure, insurance, manufacturing, media, packaging, real estate, technology and telecom.
We seek to leverage our team’s rare combination of top-tier investment banking, private equity and operational experience for the benefit of our capital partners and investment banking clients.
In our private equity practice we make control investments in corporate and real Estate assets that are underperforming relative to their full potential. Once we make an investment, we focus on aggressively improving the operating performance of the asset we have acquired over a five to seven year ownership period.
In our investment banking practice we provide corporate and real estate clients with superior advice and top-tier execution on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, debt and equity financings and strategic matters.
