About Catapult Advisory Group

Over 50 years experience

Between our senior staff, we have over 50 years of mergers and acquisition experience in large venture capital firms, investment banks and boutique M & A shops. Now we offer you that wealth of experience at a small, hands-on group. When you work with Catapult Advisory Group, you are working with senior members, not foisted off on junior staff. 

Types of Clients We Serve

While we are industry agnostic when it relates to the industries we serve, we have had regular success with companies between $10-$75 of revenue.   Half of our business relates to our Catapult Connect service, where the buyer and seller already know each other.   We have serviced many clients in the following industries: value-added distribution, business services, industrial services and manufacturing.

Many of our clients start working with us 3-5 years before their eventual sale.  We typically provide a market analysis and valuation with tips and recommendation on how to maximize their ultimate valuation.  We also have a deep and robust team of referral partners that we regularly introduce to our clients to assist them in implementing and achieving the growth and value-building plan.
