Global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) appointed New York-based Nathaniel Bartch as a managing director in its global transaction advisory group (TAG).

Bartch has broad experience in buy- and sell-side financial and accounting due diligence. He advises private equity funds and their portfolio companies across a range of industries, including industrial manufacturing, consumer products, retail and business services. Bartch will focus on developing cross-functional, client-focused teams to best leverage A&M’s multiple lines of service and heritage of operational excellence in support of crossover engagements firm-wide.

Paul Aversano, global practice leader of A&M’s global transaction advisory group, stressed how the hiring of Bartch aligns with Global TAG’s growth strategy.

“First, is our global investment in experienced leaders typified by our recent expansion in Asia and Canada. Second, is the broadening of Global TAG’s service offerings, as demonstrated by the recent addition of our ESG Advisory team,” Aversano said. “Third, is to become clients’ trusted advisor with relationship-driven teams that maximize our integrated platform and mobilize our full suite of capabilities. Nate’s hands-on history building teams and his results-oriented approach to driving value will help us do exactly that.”

Prior to joining A&M, Bartch spent more than a decade with the deal advisory and strategy group at KPMG in New York. He has led due diligence efforts on more than 200 transactions, including platform acquisitions, add-on transactions, spin-offs, carve-outs and mergers. Additionally, he has led cross-border transactions and has advised on data and analytics, forecasting, business modeling, quality of net assets and financial risk issues. Bartch was also in charge of all U.S. recruiting efforts for the group, as well.

“Adding Nate to the Global TAG team highlights the importance of taking a long-term relationship perspective for meeting clients’ current and future needs,” Anthony Caporrino, managing director and U.S. TAG practice leader for A&M, said. “He exemplifies A&M’s commitment to hiring experienced leaders with the talent and drive to roll up their sleeves, create bespoke teams and deliver solutions as needed whenever and wherever for clients.”

“A&M’s integrated platform has the strength and operating tradition that fosters collaborative opportunities and creates sustainable solutions for clients,” Bartch said. “By developing bespoke teams, across the full spectrum of our offering, we can better identify and address clients’ evolving needs. Our hidden strength is our ability to harness the cross-border and cross-functional bench strength of our professionals.”
