Conway MacKenzie Adds Bohnert to Global Transaction Services Practice


Conway MacKenzie added Anthony Bohnert to its Global Transaction Services Practice, further increasing the energy team’s expertise and expanding its presence in Houston.

Over the last decade, Conway MacKenzie’s Energy Advisory Services team has successfully completed more than 100 energy restructuring mandates and continues to make sizeable investments in expanding lines of service. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary in Houston, Conway MacKenzie is expanding its senior leadership team to further enhance transaction advisory, performance improvement and valuation services.

With more than 20 years of energy and non-energy transaction advisory experience, Bohnert will lead the firm’s energy-focused M&A due diligence offering and carve-out assistance for domestic and international transactions. In addition to traditional buy-side and sell-side diligence, Bohnert will oversee FCPA-focused buy-side diligence.

“We recognize the market demand for broader service offerings. The days of single-offering boutiques have passed, and we are focused on our ability to provide clients with solutions throughout the M&A lifecycle. The addition of Tony is a significant step in the direction of solidifying Conway MacKenzie as a fully equipped advisory partner to the clients we serve,” said John T. Young, Jr., senior managing director of Conway MacKenzie.

Bohnert joins the Houston team with nearly four decades of experience in various sectors of finance across multiple industries, including six years as chief financial officer of Silver Eagle Distributors. Most recently, he was a partner for 15 years at KPMG, where he led the U.S. Deal Advisory Energy practice. At KPMG, Bohnert provided M&A advisory services to both private equity and corporate clients on more than 300 U.S. and cross-border transactions.

“Over the past 10 years, I’ve witnessed Conway MacKenzie’s Houston team grow to become one of the most trusted resources to some of the industry’s biggest players,” said Bohnert. “Leveraging the firm’s deep experience with operational and performance improvement as part of our due diligence services will help our clients in maximizing the value of their deals. I look forward to working with the team as they continue to expand their portfolio in Houston.”

Conway MacKenzie is a global consulting firm with an over 30-year history of driving growth and creating value for clients across multiple industries. It has over 150 employees and operates offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.
