Cascadia Capital, LLC, a leading middle market investment bank serving public and private companies around the globe, announced today the establishment of a Los Angeles office. Cascadia Capital has been dedicated to exemplary client service since its founding in 1999, and has steadily expanded its geographic footprint over the years to better serve clients.
“Our Los Angeles office creates a dedicated local presence in a large and established market that has shown significant opportunity for the firm across the industries we serve and allows us an opportunity to better serve current and prospective clients throughout the Western United States,” said Michael Butler, Chairman and CEO of Cascadia Capital.
The Los Angeles office will be led by Managing Director Paul Louie, head of the firm’s Automotive Aftermarket practice. Paul has more than 20 years of corporate finance and M&A advisory experience. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Paul has an extensive base of relationships and knowledge of the local business community.
Southern California is a natural extension of the firm’s growth. It is one of the nation’s most diverse and robust economies, and home to a multitude of middle market businesses and a thriving private equity community. Los Angeles is also home to a number of automotive aftermarket companies and is the headquarters for the industry association, Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA).
“Los Angeles is the ideal location for both the firm’s overall expansion and as a base for our Automotive Aftermarket practice,” added Louie. “The recent transactions of two local automotive aftermarket businesses, Pilot Automotive and Rosen Electronics, are a testament to the value we bring to our clients and the successes we’ve had here in Los Angeles. We look forward to extending our reputation as a trusted advisor.”
The Los Angeles office will be located in downtown at the City National Plaza, 515 South Flower Street, 36 Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90071.
