Private Equity Expert William Lehr joins PSMJ’s M&A Consulting Team

It is no secret that ownership succession is a growing challenge for many architecture and engineering firms and this is one of the most significant drivers of elevated merger and acquisition activity in 2011 and going into 2012. “Transaction activity and new engagement inquiry levels for PSMJ are at record levels,” states PSMJ Senior M&A Consultant Brad Wilson. “From cross-border deals to growing opportunities for private equity, 2012 will be a busy year.”

Responding to growing global demand, PSMJ welcomes William Lehr to its world-class M&A consulting team. Bill joins PSMJ with more than a decade of private investment experience. Bill’s well-rounded career includes serving as a Vice President with Blue Point Capital Partners where he was closely involved with Blue Point’s investment in 600-person Callison Architecture.

“We are thrilled to have Bill on the team. Around the United States and around the world, we have taken great care in building the most respected and sought-after brand when it comes to the business of architecture and engineering,” states PSMJ President and CEO Frank Stasiowski, FAIA. “Our merger and acquisition practice has been an instrumental part of PSMJ’s growth strategy and getting Bill on the team is just one more example of our commitment to delivering excellence to our clients.”

As a consultant in PSMJ’s M&A practice, Lehr’s areas of focus will be in assisting both acquiring and selling clients in achieving M&A success. Additionally, he’ll be a key resource in PSMJ’s acclaimed Senior Executive Roundtable on Mergers & Acquisitions.
