EKS&H launches an investment bank

Leadership hire provides clients strategic investment banking services

EKS&H, a nationally recognized professional services firm, has formed a new corporate finance and merger and acquisition (M&A) advisory firm, EKS&H Capital Advisors, LLC (EKS&H Capital Advisors).

Leading the team will be Adams Price, an experienced investment banker who joins the firm from Denver-based The Forbes M+A Group. EKS&H Partner Lori Gibson will help lead the charge in establishing and integrating the investment banking offerings of EKS&H.

“At EKS&H, we strive to keep an eye out for talented professionals whose values match our own and who offer the experience our clients seek,”  EKS&H CEO Bob Hottman said. “Having worked with Adams and The Forbes M+A Group during our 2015 acquisition of Infolink Consulting, I witnessed firsthand his exceptional talent and ability to guide business owners through a transaction process. I am confident he is both a natural cultural fit to our firm and will be a fierce advocate for our clients.”

Price’s career began in the technology industry with Rushmore Financial Group and continued as he served as a managing partner at Whittman-Hart, Inc., where he led technology services, which grew from $9 million to more than $20 million in two years. After serving as senior vice president of operations for Izodia in London, he co-founded The Vérto Group, an M&A advisory firm in 2002. Price joined The Forbes M+A Group as managing director in 2012.

“What is so unusual about EKS&H is that the organization’s values direct every single interaction and relationship — on all levels,” Price said. “Their remarkable commitment to deep, long-term relationships and comprehensive advice are primary reasons for their growth as a leading public accounting and consulting firm in the western U.S. Investment banking is a natural extension to the deep relationships in the marketplace.”

EKS&H Capital Advisors will offer a range of investment banking services, including sell-side and buy-side M&A advisory, capital formation, and strategic advisory services. Investment banking and securities services will be offered through DCF, LLC, member FINRA/SIPC.
