Why Renaissance Strategic Advisors?

We are a 50 person industry specialist team that successfully competes against some of the largest firms in the advisory market.  We are expanding our team driven by the growth of our client relationships, organic development of our organization, and breadth of our customer offerings.  While we service clients at the most senior levels, we have maintained a culture that focuses on bringing multi-disciplinary experience and thought leadership to our sector by constantly innovating our insights and applying new elements of expertise.

In M&A advisory specifically, we work with clients on buy-side and sell-side situations.  This includes on the “front-end” of engaging to construct an M&A-driven value creation strategy and proactively bringing thoughtful ideas to clients, to the “back-end” of evaluating and valuing a specific target as part of diligence and formulating an ongoing growth strategy post-close.

Our team combines the depth of our sector consulting expertise with investment banking, corporate development, and operator backgrounds to differentiate our M&A service offering.  Our clients are predominately sector-leading corporates and large financial sponsors and their portfolio companies.  The nature of mandates range from recurrent clients where we are agnostic to buy-side target size, through to involvement on advisory teams as the sector-expert advisor on large and complex cross-border transactions.

We are a rapidly growing firm and offer candidates competitive compensation and significant opportunities for personal and career development.  We are particularly focused on candidates that share our passion for the industry and are excited by the industry leading clients and complex M&A situations we advise on.
