SAN DIEGO (October 23, 2017) — Objective Capital Partners, a middle market M&A Advisory Firm located in Southern California, is pleased to announce it has been selected as a finalist in seven categories for Advisor of the Year 2017. These awards acknowledge middle market mergers and acquisitions professionals who have significantly contributed to the successful sale, expansion or recapitalization of their clients’ companies in the San Diego region.

Categories in which Objective Capital Partners was selected as an Advisor of the Year finalist include: best sell-side representation, best expansion capital advisory, special advisory situation, and best contribution related to valuation services. The awards program will be held at the world-renowned La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology on Thursday, October 26 at 5:30 p.m. featuring keynote speakers Jeff Mattfold, former head of M&A for Tyco International; and John Sarkisian, former CEO of SKLZ and Pat & Oscars. Net proceeds from the event will go to the Institute.

“It is an honor for the Objective Capital team to be recognized for its’s hard work and the results they achieve for their clients”, said Trever Acers, Managing Director, Objective Capital Partners. “These recognitions demonstrate the depth of our team’s capabilities and expertise in helping business owners and entrepreneurs achieve their objectives.”

Judges assessed finalists on their professional contribution in the sale, expansion capitalization or recapitalization of their clients’ companies. Judging was led by John Major, founder and president of MTSG and Broadcom chairman, and Histogen founder and CEO Gail Naughton, both of whom also serve on the board of La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology. Judges also included representatives of UCSD’s Rady School of Management, CSU San Marcos’ School of Business, and the La Jolla Institute, as well as several entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated the M&A process.

“We look forward to formally recognizing these finalists,” says Lori Thiel, executive director for the Advisor of the Year program. “They are instrumental in the success of the M&A community in San Diego and until now have largely gone unrecognized.”

“Though the awards ceremony is the highlight of the evening, the organization is about so much more,” says Thiel. “It’s also an educational institution that coordinates and promotes ongoing M&A seminars and conferences. This fills an important niche in the San Diego business community.”
