Ken joined CM2 in May 2014 and has over 30 years of experience serving the financial needs of major corporations. Following 12 years as an Audit and Accounting and client development specialist with McGladrey & Pullen, Ken joined Washington-based Taylor Companies, an international banking firm, where he served in a variety of positions, ultimately being named Managing Director and, finally, head of Taylor’s Strategic Investment Banking division. During his tenure with Taylor, Ken served in leadership roles on transactions valued at over $10 billion.
In 2008, Ken was one of the founders of BGR Capital & Trade, a boutique investment bank affiliated with BGR Group. While with BGR, Ken and his team completed M&A and capital raising assignments in the US, Europe and the Middle East.
Ken has headed up projects for major multi-national clients such as General Electric, Baxter International, McDermott International, Dow Chemical, Kone Corporation and Chiquita. In 2006, he managed the divestiture of Egypt’s largest pharmaceutical company. The common thread on each of these deals was an outcome based on the strategic value and underlying synergies to be realized by the transacting parties.
This strategic focus is one of CM2’s core competencies. Through the ability to thoroughly understand and refine deal logic and to quantify deal synergies with a high level of confidence, Ken and his team offer clients an approach to M&A advisory services that can produce a significantly higher probability of deal success.
Ken is a 1984 graduate of North Carolina State University with a degree in Accounting and he has served in numerous local and state-wide offices for the North Carolina Association of CPAs. He has been a guest speaker at North Carolina State’s Poole College of Management as well as making guest appearances on Fox News, CNBC, and Bloomberg News.
