At Our Core
We Are Relationship & Information Driven and Have a Methodically Targeted Approach
Established in 2011, Genz & Associates is a leading buy-side mergers and acquisitions advisory firm based in Manhattan Beach, CA. Our core focus is partnering with leading investors seeking to deploy capital into industry-specific platform investments, add-on/strategic acquisitions, and buy-and-build strategies. On behalf of our retained investors, we directly engage companies that coincide with their specific investment strategies and theses. We utilize information, resources, industry relationships, skill, and experience to undertake a targeted, proactive, and systematic approach to facilitate and close transactions.
Our firm has developed, cultivated, and maintained a proprietary database over the years of both privately-held companies and well-capitalized Investors. These investors include private equity firms, family offices, and corporate acquirors that are committed to deploying capital into high-quality companies through a well thought out investment strategy. In addition to liquidity for founders and shareholders, an experienced, well-established investor can provide capital to capture market share and drive growth as well as the ability to navigate volatility in the market and prepare for subsequent growth opportunities.
We strive to meet the objectives of business owners and remain within our clients’ investment criteria in supporting a tailored transaction that suits both parties. Our commitment:
- Uphold strict confidentiality
- Maintain the highest standards of professionalism and integrity
- Full transparency with organized and consistent updates
- Always compensated by the investor
“Using an experienced buy-side M&A firm can save you invaluable time, money, and resources.”
The Genz team is comprised of professionals with a proven track record for closing transactions while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and confidentiality with our investors and business owners.
Genz & Associates is an extension of our team at Pfingsten. Their research group builds deep-dive lists of companies that fit our investment criteria for both platforms and add-ons. The professionals at Genz have earned our trust by always treating entrepreneurs with respect. When we are introduced to an entrepreneur, Genz has shared our investment strategy and criteria, our history, and what we seek in a partnership. Genz understands our culture and has consistently connected us to entrepreneurs who share similar values in how to build a business.
“We’ve partnered with Mark and his team for multiple years. Having closed numerous transactions through introductions made by him and G&A, they have proven to be a reliable and valuable resource supporting our business development efforts”
I have closed a transaction with the firm and Mark Genz demonstrates great energy and is relentless in achieving the goals of his clients while maintaining professional integrity.
“Genz & Associates have been strong partners with MW Industries in developing our M&A pipeline. Mark Genz and his team have worked diligently to build a large pool of prospects for us, and have been extremely thorough and diligent in managing all the front end activities associated with getting us to initial management meetings, etc. Mark has an uncanny ability to build rapport with individuals that he rarely meets in person, and we find that his insights into the internal dynamics of our prospective acquisitions are on target.”
“I would like to thank you for the introduction to M.W. Industries. This incredible opportunity for Maudlin Products would not have been possible without your interaction. When you first made contact, I was concerned about moving forward. Genz & Associates provided the information and security, which made all future progress possible. Thank you for all your help.”
