Summit Advisory has been helping Middle-Market business owners in the mid-Atlantic region to achieve their goals for nearly three decades.  Since our founding in 1989, we have maintained a razor-sharp focus on producing great results for our clients.  We routinely go above and beyond to make sure that our clients receive the best possible outcomes.

We’re different than other investment banking firms.  Our business model is not built around “deal flow” and we don’t delegate our work to junior associates. We are a team of highly-qualified senior professionals from a variety of disciplines.  We work together and follow disciplined processes to make sure that our clients get the outstanding results they deserve.

Every member of the Summit Advisory team has been the person on the other side of the table.  We’ve all been the person struggling to get a good project completed for our business only to find that there is no one really interested in helping.  We believe deeply that middle-market businesses are the backbone of our nation’s economy and we feel that the Middle Market is not well served when it comes to critical transactions and raising capital.  Our mission is the serve Middle Market business owners the way we would want to be served- with world class support in reaching their goals.

Summit has a deep commitment to life long learning while developing a unique “M&A Business Intelligence.” This life-long commitment to learning, the capacity to solve problems and meet challenges, and create special value for our clients has resulted in our over 90% success rate. We strive to remain on the cutting edge of our industry.
