Marriott & Co. 2021 Year in Review

Marriott & Co. is pleased to announce that our team successfully completed six transactions in 2021. Included in these transactions was our 50th successful deal closing at Marriott & Co. since the firm was founded in 2007. We are sincerely grateful to all of our clients and other participants over the years in helping our firm achieve this milestone, and we look forward to the next 50 transactions!

As we kick off 2022, we wanted to take a look back to highlight some of the characteristics of the six deals from 2021 as they are representative of the services we provide:

  • Closely-Owned Companies – All six of our clients this year were either founder-owned companies or multi-generational family businesses.
  • Broad Industry Experience – These six transactions touched a number of different industries including manufacturing, consumer, healthcare and logistics.
  • Diversity of Buyers and Deal Structures – Unique buyers including private equity firms, public companies and family offices with deal structures ranging from 100% sales to partial recapitalizations.
  • Extensive Geographic Coverage – The companies in the six transactions had operations in multiple different states including Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana and West Virginia.
