TM Capital Corp. is established in New York City when our founding partners, including Greg Robertson, Paul Smolevitz and Michael Goldman, acquire the investment banking division of Thomson McKinnon Securities Inc. Since our founding, TM Capital’s goal has been to provide client companies with the experience, expertise, resources and focus required to complete complex strategic and financial transactions.
The Firm becomes a cornerstone member of M&A International Inc., the world’s preeminent network of independent investment banks. Today, Oaklins (formerly M&A International) offers the unparalleled resources of more than 40 investment banking firms and over 700 professionals blanketing the major financial centers around the world. TM Capital assists clients in completing mergers, acquisitions and financings that cross international borders by leveraging the established relationships of our Oaklins partners around the globe.
The Firm expands into the Southeast by opening its Atlanta office, led by Jim Grien, previously Head of Corporate Finance for Prudential Securities Inc. Jim began his career with TM Capital’s founders at Thomson McKinnon.
TM Capital acquires Boston Corporate Finance, Inc., a technology-focused investment bank and a fellow member firm of M&A International (now Oaklins), expanding our footprint to include Boston, New York and Atlanta. The combination creates a leading independent investment bank with deep industry expertise and enhanced global reach. Jim Grien is appointed President of the Firm upon completion of the merger.
Reflecting the Firm’s continued growth and success, TM Capital’s Boston office relocates to the John Hancock Tower in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay district. TM Capital’s New York office relocates from Battery Park to Midtown Manhattan to provide clients with a more central and convenient location in New York City. Rob Grien joins TM Capital to lead our growing leveraged finance practice.
TM Capital expands our global healthcare investment banking practice with the addition of James McLaren, the co-founder of Asante Partners. Together, TM Capital and Asante Partners have completed over 80 healthcare mergers, acquisitions and financings valued at over $3 billion.
TM Capital celebrates our 25th Anniversary and completes one of our most successful years to date. We continue to set records each year for client success, as measured by the value and volume of our completed transactions.
