About the Firm

Valitas Capital Partners is a corporate finance advisory firm that specializes in private market mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance.

Entrepreneurs and executives trust us to provide advice for their most important and transformational projects, such as selling their businesses, raising capital, executing acquisition programs and implementing audacious value creation strategies. We have earned this trust because we expertly apply tools and techniques developed at leading global investment banks and private equity firms to deliver a level of excellence typically only available to much larger companies working with top-tier global investment banks.

For our firm to excel, we need to do two things extraordinarily well:

3. Initiative: We are impact players who take ownership of a given situation and make things happen. We see the big picture and anticipate the next step to stay ahead.

4. Trustworthiness: We do the right thing. We are candid, ethical and act in our clients' best interest, even when it puts our fees at risk.

5. Team Orientation: We are collaborative, communicative, respectful, and empathetic. We offer and accept help, elevating the performance of those around us. We put Valitas' interests ahead of our own.

All members of our team make an explicit commitment to uphold these values.
