Nick’s background includes a combination of skills as a CPA, Entrepreneur/CEO, and investment banker.  Nick began his career as a CPA with KPMG.  As Senior Manager, Assurance Services, he conducted audit and assurance engagements as well as mergers & acquisition engagements.

As a founding principal in of PCE Investment Bankers, a Florida-based investment banking firm, Nick represented numerous clients in mergers & acquisitions and private placements.  He also spearheaded the establishment of the firm’s business valuation practice.

In addition to Nick’s financial foundation, his entrepreneurial spirit crafted and created Touch Vodka, a locally sourced, small-batch distillery where he specialized in vodka and gin.  He won national recognition from the San Francisco World of Spirits Competition, earning a gold medal.  In 2012, Nick successfully exited his company with a sale to a Florida-based investment group and returned to investment banking where he could help other Entrepreneurs realize their value.

Nick joined the team of CFO Strategic Partners to focus on the firm’s operations and to create internal systems and proprietary tools to ensure we maximize the value for each client.  In addition, because of his investment banking roots, Nick provides direction to our team and CEOs on exit strategies, M&A, and ensures we remain focused on what truly drives corporate value.

“I believe strongly in our value proposition because our clients have access to strategic financial support at a fraction of the cost of hiring one full-time.  I also love working with CEOs to determine what truly drives the value in their companies and to create plans that ensure we remain focused on maximizing shareholder return and corporate value.”   – Nick
