Aaron Solganick, Founder and CEO
After a successful 20+ year technology-focused investment banking career, Aaron Solganick founded Solganick & Co. in 2009. He launched the firm because of a large number of conflicts of interest within the investment banking industry as well as a general lack of vertical industry specialization among a majority of investment bankers. He wanted to make sure his team was focused and had deep industry expertise and experience in order to complete M&A transactions for his clients.
Aaron has held leading investment banking and corporate development positions at many prominent firms including KPMG Corporate Finance, Bear Stearns, B. Riley & Co., Southwest Securities, and Perot Systems Corporation. He has advised on over 200+ transactions totaling approximately $8.6 billion of value including M&A, private equity, IPO’s, and secondary offerings of several top global technology and digital media firms.
“There are many generalist M&A shops around, but not many are focused on the technology and digital media sectors we cover,” he noted. He then set out to recruit the smartest people he could find that were experienced investment bankers and M&A professionals within the software, IT services, and digital media industry sectors.
Today, Solganick & Co. is a top ranked, award winning, boutique investment banking and M&A advisory firm serving software, technology, and digital media sectors globally.
Solganick & Co. provides Investment Banking and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) advisory services exclusively for the Software, IT Services, Healthcare Software and Technology, Artificial Intelligence, and Digital Media marketplace
“Aaron’s application of a high standard of both ethics and integrity to our business in regard to potential acquisitions ensured alignment with our financial environment. I would highly recommend Aaron and his talented staff to assist with any investment or capital projects that a business would require.”
Craig Montesanti, EVP and CFO
“I have known Aaron for more than five years and during that time, he consistently presented appropriate opportunities, demonstrating a real understanding of the IT Services industry and value of strong alignment between target and potential acquirer.
“Because of his deep network, Aaron was able to bring deals that might otherwise have been below the radar and offer strong value to both parties. I will continue to work with Aaron in the near future on M&A deals.”
Robin Kearon, CEO North America
“Aaron is top-notch M&A professional. I have worked with Aaron on M&A activities and value his industry knowledge, expertise, professionalism, commitment to creating value for both buyer and seller in M&A transactions.”
Michael Pearson, President and Owner
“Aaron Solganick was the M&A advisor to my recent transaction. His knowledge and experience in the IT services industry as well as the SAP services sector specifically was a tremendous asset to my transaction. He always focuses on quality prospects and making sure that he brings the good match together. I appreciate his hard work, integrity, and high level of energy. I highly recommend Aaron.”
