Why Choose Us?

Marriott & Co. was founded with a vision to be different from other middle market investment banks.  Our combination of an entrepreneurial culture, best-in-class process expertise, senior attention, and buyer and investor access is critical to our ability to exceed the expectations of our client base of closely-held private companies.

Entrepreneurial Culture

We are a private, 100% independently owned boutique investment banking firm.  Our clients benefit by receiving unbiased, objective advice from us.  Our firm’s success is tied to closing each and every transaction we take on, so our sole focus is to provide superior service and flawless execution to our clients on every assignment.  Our entrepreneurial culture also provides us with a unique ability to relate to the clients that we serve, many of which are themselves entrepreneurs.

Best-in-Class Process Expertise

Every transaction at Marriott & Co. is unique, and we are experts at customizing processes to meet the objectives and needs of our clients.  We have demonstrated the ability to consistently execute a tightly controlled process and achieve premium valuations. Our processes are dynamic, detailed, disciplined and focused on proactively anticipating potential challenges that may arise. Marriott & Co.’s marketing process emphasizes efficiency and minimizes business disruption for our clients.  We believe our clients’ focus should be on running their business and leaving the deal process to us.  Simply stated, our process works.

Senior Attention

Senior bankers work on every aspect of our transactions, from beginning to the end.  There are no “handoffs” to junior professionals at our firm.  Collectively, our professionals have over 50 years of experience focused exclusively on the middle market, including tenure with some of the nation’s leading investment banks.  Our team has completed over 95 transactions in our careers, many of which were highly complex.  We bring all of this experience and knowledge to each and every assignment for our clients.

Buyer and Investor Access

Marriott & Co. maintains relationships with a large number of capital providers that are relevant to our middle market client base, including private equity firms, mezzanine capital providers and senior lenders.  We have also developed proprietary relationships with a number of buyers and investors that are often “overlooked” by other middle market investment banks, such as family offices and other alternative buyers and investors.  Throughout our history, we have also demonstrated an ability to access relevant domestic and international strategic buyers on our transactions, regardless of industry, including several sales to publicly-traded companies.
