Wexford, PA, May 1, 2015 — A new Pittsburgh firm, SteelGate Advisors (SteelGate), was recently established as a multi-discipline investment bank specializing in buy- and sell-side representation, corporate finance, business valuation and tax planning/structuring for middle market companies. The company believes its expertise, objectivity and individualized approach will help stakeholders develop the important, and often challenging, business strategies for achieving their professional and personal financial goals. SteelGate contends, that in contrast to many investment banking firms that focus solely on brokering merger and acquisition deals, they base client strategies on both the unique business situation and the particular vision the business stakeholders hold for the future.
“Let’s face it, every business owner’s situation and goals are different,” says Thomas J. Krahe, Director of SteelGate. “Every vision of the future is unique. Every business principal deserves to be heard. Every business is simply not ready to be bought or sold. We are here to first listen and look at the big picture before we can show a business owner the best alternatives to maximize potential and, most importantly, secure their future.”
SteelGate, headquartered near Pittsburgh in Wexford, Pennsylvania, will focus on regional mid-market privately owned companies seeking specialized services for their mergers and acquisitions, succession planning, business valuations and capitalization needs. SteelGate will deliver their services with an experienced staff of investment bankers, entrepreneurs, valuation experts and tax specialists. The SteelGate managing director, Bill Collier, CPA/MST, is a well-known and respected business consultant who has provided counsel to scores of businesses, particularly in the planning of their future. “It was simply time to bring a better, holistic service to the market. There are a lot of cookie-cutter M&A firms and deal brokers out there. They just want to quickly make a deal. We want to invest and think outside the box. There’s a big difference to the way we approach client wants and needs,” proclaims Collier.
