Deal Experience


Columbia West Capital offers extensive experience gained through the execution of a wide variety of transactions, from large and extremely complex transactions to niche and highly structured transactions. Collectively, our founders and partners have been involved in transactions totaling over $30 billion in aggregate value, including M&A, equity and debt transactions. 

With regard to industry, we believe that maintaining a generalist approach produces the best results for middle market companies in almost all situations.  As a result, we are obsessive about designing and running a process for each client that is:  (a) tailored to their specific needs; (b) thorough; and (c) efficient.  As generalists, we remain free from industry bias and are beholden to no one but our clients.  Our team-based approach to staffing ensures complete coverage of deal needs and the engagement of the appropriate expertise from our broad stable of resources. Collectively, we have completed transactions across a broad range of industries, including:

Aerospace & Defense
Building Products

Consumer Products
Distribution
