MHT Opens Boston Office, Hires Mark Young

Mark Young has joined Dallas-based investment bank MHT Partners, as head of the firm’s new Boston office. He previously was a managing director with Capstone Partners.


MHT Partners, a national growth-focused investment banking firm, has announced the hiring of Mark Young, a 20-year industry veteran, to head its new Boston office.

“New England has been a key market for MHT – we have been targeting our growth and expansion to Boston for some time, given our focus on tech-enabled growth companies and the resulting established relationships we enjoy with private equity firms and operating businesses in the region,” said Mike McGill, MHT’s managing director and co-founder.

Prior to joining MHT, Mr. Young was a Managing Director with Boston-based Capstone Partners, leading the firm’s technology solutions franchise. His experience includes 17 years with Adams Harkness, Inc., a leading Boston-based investment bank (acquired by Canaccord Capital in 2006). Young also served as head of Adams Harkness’ west coast office in San Francisco and was a key contributor to the firm’s growth and investment banking strategy. His experience includes transaction advisory across technology, consumer and healthcare industries.

Commented Young, “I am thrilled to be joining the team at MHT – their passion for growth companies and innovative approach to developing client solutions have created a truly differentiated investment banking franchise.”

Shawn Terry, Managing Director and MHT Co-founder, commented, “MHT’s Boston office will enhance the level of expert service and access we provide our clients and partners. Mark’s historical focus on growth companies and relationships in the region are a wonderful match with MHT’s expansion goals. He is a great fit with the culture of the firm and will provide the experience and senior-level attention our clients demand.”

MHT intends to add additional investment banking personnel to its Boston office over the coming months. Said Young, “Following significant industry consolidation, it’s exciting to be part of a successful and growing franchise – one with an outstanding reputation for quality service. We will continue to pursue a focused and disciplined strategy as we grow MHT’s regional presence.”
