MHT MidSpan merger complete

MHT Partners and MidSpan Partners have merged to create MHT MidSpan. The combined businesses have created a middle market investment bank focused on high-growth companies.


A leading middle-market-focused investment bank, MHT was launched in Dallas in 2001 with particular expertise in serving the needs of rapidly growing businesses, often tech-enabled. Co-founders Mike McGill and Shawn D. Terry founded the firm with a clear strategy of providing an often underserved middle market with a team of experienced and highly pedigreed investment bankers supplemented by professionals who had spent time in top-tier strategic consulting firms. The firm added a Boston office in 2010.
Founded in 2010 in San Francisco to provide high quality mergers & acquisitions and capital raising advisory services, MidSpan has already earned a reputation for exceptional execution on behalf of its client base and shares MHT’s passion for serving attractive middle market companies across the US.
“We founded MidSpan on the principle of assembling the most talented team of bankers focused on the middle market to serve interesting clients in dynamic industries. We have been successful in developing a highly entrepreneurial and productive team with a culture focused on performance and creativity,” Pat Crocker states. Craig Lawson adds, “We found the perfect partner in MHT. Our firms share the same commitment to excellence and found that our cultures are remarkably similar. The most notable common thread between us is our commitment to people: to our clients and running the best possible process for them, and to our team and community.”
Mike McGill agrees by adding “the combined MHT MidSpan, with over 40 team members in Boston, San Francisco and Dallas, not only makes us one of the larger independent, employee-owned investment banks serving the middle market, but allows us to collaborate to extend our already deep expertise in specific industry sectors including: technology; business and information services; education; consumer/retail; healthcare services; energy services and industrial growth.
Shawn Terry states that “our firms have spent the past several months working collaboratively to evaluate the attractiveness of merging efforts. The leadership of both firms quickly recognized that our shared objectives, productive and entrepreneurial culture, focus on targeted industries and geographic locations made this a perfect fit. We believe both current and prospective clients will benefit from the combined firm’s scale, collective knowledge of targeted industries and proven transaction execution success.”
