What We Do

We are a nationally recognized investment banking firm specializing in merger and acquisition.

Chestnut Hill Partners originates merger and acquisition transactions. With over 20 years experience in mergers and acquisitions, we have a strong track record of facilitating successful transactions that serve the best interests of buyers and sellers.

  • To affirm our commitment to the companies we work with, we have been co-investing in transactions we originate for over 20 years.
  • We typically work with companies and/or divisions whose gross annual sales are in the $20 million to $500 million range, with occasional assignments outside that range.

Our Approach

We advise both buyers and sellers on  privately negotiated transactions to achieve optimal transaction outcomes for both parties.

We advise both buyers and sellers on  privately negotiated transactions which allows us to execute confidential transactions that align the intrinsic values and interests of our clients with companies we engage. This approach provides sellers the opportunity to fully explore all options before making a decision. Our experienced professionals discreetly and confidentially bring buyers together with companies seeking investment capital, and sellers seeking majority or minority sale transactions. Our goal is to find the common ground where the values, interests, and goals of buyers and sellers are in perfect alignment.

Firm Values

Our business model is founded on core values of transparency, honesty and integrity.

  • Maintain the highest ethical standards and avoid even the appearance of impropriety.
  • Teamwork is essential to our success. The interests of the firm come before the individual.
  • Transparency and openness are the cornerstones of strong relationships. We will resolve any actual or perceived conflicts in an upfront and transparent manner.
  • Good partnership is good business. We strive to align our interests with our investors and management teams, be reliable and trustworthy partners to both, and work for the best possible outcomes for everyone.
  • People are our most valuable assets. We seek to hire and retain professionals who possess and practice the highest business and ethical standards and share our core values.
  • Never disclose confidential information. Any confidential information received as part of our business will never be disclosed or used improperly.
  • Treat everyone with dignity and respect. We will treat everyone, fellow employees, investors, management teams, financiers, vendors, and our competitors with dignity and respect.
  • We make our communities better places to live and work. We use our influence for positive change and respect the power entrusted in us by our investors.

Client Success

We’ve assisted many clients in achieving successful transactions.

CHP’s Targeted Search for Driven Brands involved the tenacious pursuit of well over 150 discrete targets in a highly fragmented market, and resulted in a significant number of franchise additions.  We were very pleased with CHP’s work.
