martinwolf’s 18th Anniversary

A Letter From Marty Wolf

Dear Clients, Partners and Friends,

 

Today is a very special day for our firm: our 18th anniversary. In recognition of this, I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge how far we’ve come since we started, and say a few words in recognition of everyone who has played a role in us getting this far.

 

First, I’d like to thank all of our clients, past and present. We’ve closed more than 130 transactions with clients of all sizes, and we’re thankful for the role that each and every one of them has played in our story. This is a relationship business, and we continue to rely on positive referrals today.

Next, I’d like to thank everyone who has helped us achieve our success by working here at the firm throughout our 18-year history. We’ve never been a very large team, but we’ve always been a very good team-and that is because of those who have worked with us in the past and those who continue to work here today.

 

Finally, I’d like to thank you, our readers. The martinwolf Intelligence Network has more than 25,000 people, and your engagement and feedback has helped us shape and grow this medium into a leading source of industry commentary and analysis.

 

Last year was a great year for our firm, and we anticipate 2015 to be one of the biggest years of our history. In the past 90 days, we advised a company with an Enterprise Value of more than $1 billion-and this quarter we will close a transaction where our client’s revenue is more than $1 billion. We’re seeing more activity in our space and our geographies than we’ve ever seen, and our cross-border opportunities are stronger than ever.

 

But I promise you that no matter what, we’ll never forget that we have to earn your trust every day. And we thank you for your continued role in our journey.

 

Thanks, and, as always, Happy Selling,

 

Marty's Signature
