By Generational Equity

Charlotte North Carolina

We are pleased to announce the continued expansion of Generational Group with the opening of our new office in Charlotte, North Carolina. In total, this addition means our firm now has 13 offices throughout North America.

The address of our new Charlotte office is:

Leading our new office will be Jack Sluiter, Managing Director, Mergers & Acquisitions in the South-Eastern region. Mr. Sluiter is a commercial real estate broker licensed in both North and South Carolina. He works directly with private middle market business owners in developing and executing exit strategies, with a focus on connecting sellers with the right buyers at an optimal price and deal structure.

Prior to working with Generational, Mr. Sluiter owned a brokerage firm that specialized in the marketing and sale of main street and lower middle market businesses. During this time he earned multiple awards, including the 100 Winners Circle Award and the President’s Club Award for 3 consecutive years.

Mr. Sluiter currently serves on the board of Parkwater Aviation, and has been an active board member for several non-profits including Parkwater Foundation and the International Association of Missionary Aviation. He and his family worked 17 years in the international non-profit world, where he served a range of roles, from a mission pilot in South America, to CFO.

“This new office is part of our strategy to enhance our M&A Advisory practice serving the technology industry, and specifically, the area's Research Triangle,” said Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer of Generational.  “This location, along with the other offices we have added the past two years, bolsters our visibility and coverage of the East Coast business community and M&A markets.”

Generational Group is one of the leading M&A advisory firms in North America, having won multiple industry awards including Investment Banking Firm of the Year in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and Valuation Firm of the Year in 2015 and 2014.

According to the 2019 Refinitiv/Thomson M&A rankings, the firm was #1 in transactions valued up to $25 million, #2 up to $100 million and #9 up to $500 million. No M&A advisor has closed more deals in the lower middle market than Generational over the past decade.
