NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2013) - PALAZZO (www.palazzonyc.com), a boutique investment bank serving marketing services, interactive, information, and new media companies, today announced it is launching a greatly enhanced and expanded consulting practice to its already well-established M&A capabilities.
PALAZZO recently announced the additions of two Managing Directors, David Abraham and Gary Palermo, to assist founder Phil Palazzo with the firm's increased banking and investment activities. Robert Solomon also joins as Managing Director, concentrating on strategic advisory knowledge and skills, designed to help clients achieve enhanced top-line growth and bottom-line performance.
Author of the highly respected and widely read book on account management, The Art of Client Service (Kaplan, 2008), Solomon previously was President and CEO of Rapp New York, President of Direct and Digital Marketing at Ammirati Puris Lintas, General Manager of FCB Direct West, and Senior Vice President and Associate Partner of Digitas precursor Bronner Slosberg Associates.
The new initiative greatly expands what the firm previously offered in M&A and advisory support, adding capabilities directed at both private equity firms and marketing services organizations in areas that include buy- and sell-side counsel, valuations, debt/equity financing, positioning, new business development, client relationship management, and market assessment.
"Our goal is to create value and wealth for our clients," says founder Phil Palazzo. "Many clients face challenges that extend beyond traditional M&A banking. Adding Robert Solomon to complement the additions of Gary Palermo and David Abraham makes us better able to address those challenges."
"What draws me to PALAZZO is their unwavering commitment to serving clients," says Solomon. "I look forward to contributing to the firm's capabilities in ways clients will welcome."
