AdMedia's group of managing directors is among the most experienced financial advisors in the media, marketing services, and Internet industries. Their diverse backgrounds as former operating and financial executives and entrepreneurs provide unique insights into both the strategic and operating issues that surface during mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. Management teams and shareholders benefit from the managing directors' keen and unique perspectives into the current themes and trends within the sectors that AdMedia covers. Most importantly, the managing directors speak the same language and have shared backgrounds with the clients they serve.
The combination of AdMedia's industry expertise and financial advisory experience provides clients with a unique offering of industry-focused deal strategy and strong transactional experience. Unlike other financial advisory firms that provide more junior staff as the day-to-day contact, AdMedia assigns two managing directors to every assignment with a lead MD as the main point of contact. A team of experienced professionals supports the managing directors, allowing them to dedicate 100% of their time to working on behalf of clients. The firm has completed over 210 transactions for clients valued in excess of $8 billion.
