Generational Equity announced the continued expansion of the firm with the opening of a new office in Columbus, Ohio. The Columbus office will be led by Jerry Yocum, Managing Director, Mergers & Acquisitions.

According to Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer of Generational Equity and President of Generational Capital Markets, "Part of our strategic plan is to open numerous offices in the top 50 markets across North America to better serve middle market business owners in the communities they operate.

“Columbus has been a strong market with companies that are attractive to our strategic and financial buyers. Jerry has been a top performing professional with Generational Equity for a long time, and I’m excited to see him lead the way in that vibrant market.”

Mr. Yocum started his M&A career in 2002 with Worthington Industries. His tenure with Generational Equity began as a regional affiliate in 2007. Jerry has considerable deal making experience across a wide spectrum of industries, including transactions in the manufacturing, oil and gas, and distribution industries.

Terry Johnson, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer for the firm stated, “The addition of the Columbus office is part of our continued growth plan and commitment to be the leader in middle market M&A services. We are executing our strategy of national expansion and are excited to continue building our North American footprint.”

Generational Equity is one of the leading lower middle market M&A advisory firms in North America, having won multiple industry awards including Investment Banking Firm of the Year in 2017 and 2016, Valuation Firm of the Year in 2015 and 2014, as well as M&A Consulting Firm of the Year in 2013 and 2011.

The firm has solidified its leadership position by providing world-class client service and unmatched deal making capabilities. According to Thomson Reuters, no M&A advisor has closed more deals in the lower middle market than Generational Equity over the past several years.

Our expansion into Columbus isn’t the first we have been pleased to announce this year. You can learn more about our Austin office expansion on our website.
