Hilco Corporate Finance (HCF), a boutique investment bank, is accelerating its growth by re-imagining corporate finance advisory for the middle market. Over the past 12 months, HCF has doubled its size and expanded its geographic presence – first with the opening of a New York City office to complement its Chicago-area team. And, more recently, it has added to its rapidly growing special situations and restructuring practice by adding Teri Stratton, a nationally prominent special situations banker in Los Angeles.

With a seasoned team of professionals, HCF provides advisory services to its middle market clients, including small and medium cap public companies, private equity groups, family offices and entrepreneurs. Over the last twelve months, HCF has redefined its strategy by hiring key industry leaders and has strengthened the breadth and depth of its investment banking services to provide unique creativity to its clients’ needs.

“Over the last year, we’ve spent considerable time expanding our business by re-imagining how capital advisory services can best be provided to middle-market clients,” Geoffrey Frankel, CEO and senior managing director at HCF, said.  “We are building our practice from the client’s point of view – focusing on a solutions-oriented, not just transactional, approach.  We are taking time to listen closely to our clients, shaping our growth to better match their needs. We are also building our investment banking business so our clients can take full advantage of Hilco Global’s amazing platform.”
