Strategic Advisory Services

In April of 2018 Strothman and Company merged with Pallas Partners, a boutique strategic advisory firm focused on corporate strategy,  mergers and acquisition, and capital structure. Based in Louisville KY the two entities have joined to form Strothman Strategic Advisory Services.  This merger brought to Strothman and Company an extremely experienced firm that was formed in 2007 to serve lower middle market clients seeking to create and implement solutions in order to achieve their corporate objectives.

Pallas Partners was founded by Matthew Saltzman who now leads the Strategic Advisory Services division. As a Partner of Strothman and Company, the full resources of Strothman and Company are available to the division to provide an extremely deep offering for our clients, that include Tax Advisory, Business Valuation, and Accounting Capabilities.

Strothman and Company is focused on and caters to the entrepreneurial client that in many cases are small-business owners faced with the challenges of growth and succession planning. These challenges to growth often include corporate execution strategies, capital structuring, and acquisition. In the case of succession, we are extremely experienced in sell-side assignments to maximize the liquidity event.  The Strategic Advisory Services division caters specifically to those needs. We provide turnkey service and advice to our clients.

Our team is comprised of very senior and experienced resources. We contract to results and provide accountable execution to achieve those results.

Our unique platform of services has allowed our clients to grow, change, turnaround and underperforming assets their performance in all economic conditions and climates, including the great recession.

We seek to maximize value for our clients whether they wish to continue operating, have reached a point of exit, want to grow organically or through acquisition, or have a need to recapitalize.

The foundation of our services lies in working with our clients as their key strategic advisor. Although we focus on the capital structure at the core of this foundation, our team is very experienced in all aspects of operating businesses, increasing efficiency and return on investment.

Our Philosophy

  • We take a provocative approach. We challenge the current condition and we seek clients looking for elevation through change management. These clients are willing to challenge all of the conventional wisdom and preexisting assumptions in their pursuit of excellence.
  • Our job as an independent advisor is to challenge, provoke, and critically analyze the current condition.
  • We begin by asking; where do you want to take the company? What do you want to accomplish? What legacy do you want to leave?
