"We hired Dan in 2009 as our banker to assist Fox River with strategic alternatives. Ultimately, our journey lead to the outright acquisition of our company by Sungard Technology, a Fortune 500 company, in mid-2010. Dan's advice and work ethic were instrumental in closing the deal. Subsequent to this transaction, I have watched as Dan has advised and partnered with some of the premier firms in the alternative asset space."

"I've known Dan for many years and have found him to be a valuable resource in thinking through portfolio company strategy. We hired Dan and his team as the investment banker for one of our businesses in the insurance industry and they were able to identify the right buyer for the company. The process resulted in a successful outcome for both the investors and management team."
