Michael Collins Takes on New Role as Partner at Building Industry AdvisorsSeptember 21st, 2012 by DWM Magazine
Michael Collins, DWM columnist and blogger, now serves as managing director and partner of Building Industry Advisors LLC, which is a recently formed affiliate of Building Industry Partners. Collins, previously with Jordan Knauff and Co., says he is pleased that his new company has a singular focus on the building products industry.
Building Industry Partners is a private equity firm with a sole focus on providing capital to building product companies including: growth capital, recapitalizations, management buyouts, buy and build acquisition strategies, control and non-control investments and transaction amounts of $10-100 million.
Building Industry Advisors provides a complete range of investment banking services to building product companies including mergers and acquisitions, private capital placement and strategic advisory services.
“I will continue to provide the same industry research and the same services of assisting with mergers and acquisitions, but now with the affiliation of Building Industry Partners we are able to expand and write direct equity checks to acquire and invest in companies,” says Collins.
“It allows me to maintain my focus on the industry and provide the full spectrum of capital in house,” he adds. “So now I have an inside source of capital as well as external sources.”
