Strategic Advisory Services

In April 2018 Strothman and Company merged with Pallas Partners, to form Strothman Strategic Advisory Services a regional firm based in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Strategic Advisory Services is led by Matthew Saltzman who founded Pallas Partners in 2007 as a boutique strategic advisory firm. The combined entity serves lower middle market companies with revenues between $2 and $100 million and is focused on three primary service offerings:

  1. Strategic Advisory
  2. Transactional Advisory
  3. Capital Advisory

At Strothman and Company, we have focused on the entrepreneurial client that in many cases are small-business owners facing the challenges of growth and succession planning. Strategic Advisory Services is focused on providing advice and execution services to these clients. Whether it is corporate strategy,  mergers and acquisition, or capital structure the combined firm brings an extremely experienced team to serve clients seeking to create and implement solutions in order to achieve their corporate objectives. We provide turnkey service and advice to our clients.

We contract to results and provide accountable execution to achieve those results. The challenges to growth can be daunting and often include corporate execution, capital structuring, and acquisition strategies. In the case of succession, we are often called upon to manage sell-side assignments or facilitate transactions in order to maximize the liquidity event. As a turnkey resource, we provide a full suite of advisory services from operating strategies to Business Valuation to M&A to capital structuring and sourcing.

Our unique platform of services has allowed our clients to grow, change, turnaround and manage their assets to improve performance in all economic conditions and climates. 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 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 to increase efficiency and return on investment. The Strategic Advisory Services division caters specifically to those needs.
