HUDSON AVENUE PARTNERS LAUNCH FIRM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Investment Banking and Capital Markets Veterans Join to Form Boutique Debt Advisory Platform, Hudson Avenue Partners
DETROIT, MICHIGAN (January 5, 2021) – Hudson Avenue Partners, a Detroit and New York-based advisory firm specializing in designing, structuring and raising debt and equity capital facilities within the middle market, has announced its official launch.
Founded by seasoned investment banking and capital markets professionals Ryan Deegan and Kelly Stotler, Hudson Avenue Partners focuses on placement engagements requiring committed capital of $25 million to over $250 million in support of acquisition, refinancing and recapitalization transactions across various industry sectors.
Mr. Deegan, formerly the head of Cowen’s Debt Advisory Group, and Mr. Stotler who recently led private equity-focused private credit efforts for Capitala Group and Czech Asset Management, have collectively raised and invested over $30 billion of debt and equity capital for clients throughout their careers. Their decades of experience in investment banking and leveraged finance have defined Hudson Avenue Partners’ collaborative, multi-faceted approach to placing capital. This depth of experience and differentiated strategy allows the firm to match top-of-market execution for clients with calculated certainty, while delivering boutique-level attention to detail on every transaction.
“We could not be more excited about the launch and early momentum of the Hudson Avenue platform,” said Ryan Deegan, partner. “As an independent firm exclusively focused on raising debt and minority equity capital, we have been able to deliver a level of execution and degree of senior-level attention rivaled by few in the middle market. I am looking forward to the opportunity to continue delivering optimal outcomes for our clients and their platform investments.”
Since commencing operations in late 2020, the firm has successfully advised Vision Growth Partners on a refinancing for platform investment Alline Salon Group, IGM Advisors on its acquisition of Grocery Services, Inc. and Wireless Vision on its recapitalization led by Gemspring Capital.
“These three transactions are a prime example of how our deep capital markets expertise and entrenched relationships with both bank and non-traditional capital providers drive placements across the capital structure,” said Kelly Stotler, partner. “Ryan and I look forward to working with more of our private equity clients to deliver customized financing solutions as we build out the Hudson Avenue Partners platform.”
