First Hill Partners Adds M&A Focus for Specialty Coffee Beverage Technology and Equipment

Seattle based investment bank First Hill Partners announced that David E. Isett, former president and CEO of Concordia Coffee Company, has joined their team to spearhead investment banking services within the Food and Beverage Technology and Equipment sector.
“David brings a wealth of industry knowledge in the food and beverage industry to our firm” states Richard Wood, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of FHP. “His leadership experience allows him to bring a unique first-hand experience in understanding the complex needs of business owners, investors and managers when seeking an advisor.”
There is tremendous consolidation taking place within the specialty equipment industry and few investment banks specialize in this aspect of the marketplace. “More than $40B worth of M&A transactions occurred in 2018 in the Food and Beverage sector, and we believe the coming year will be equally as exciting for the industry”, states Isett.
Owners of companies need to be preparing to successfully exit their business long before they ever begin a sales process or seek strategic financing partners. “I am very excited to be a part of the First Hill Partners’ team, and supporting other business owners to plan, market, negotiate and execute a very successful transition”, adds Isett.
