Skyline Advisors is pleased to announce the addition of Michael Pechette to the firm’s leadership team. Michael will lead the firm’s Industrials practice area and oversee its activities in the Great Lakes region from the Chicago office. This region covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
An Indiana native, Michael has over thirty years of financial advisory and executive operating experience. Prior to Skyline Advisors, he was with Falcon Advisors, LLC, a boutique financial advisory firm specializing in lower middle market merger and acquisition transactions. Michael is also an investor and serves as the CFO of RP Industries, Inc. of Delta, OH, a holding company whose operating companies manufacture metal parts and products for a wide variety of global OEMs.
His role with RP Industries is how Michael and Skyline Advisors originally became acquainted. Several years ago, one of RP Industries’ subsidiaries purchased a Skyline Advisors client. “Over the years, I have reviewed hundreds of CIMs and interacted with as many investment bankers, and Skyline’s work, attention to detail, and professionalism are second to none,” Michael commented. “When evaluating the next chapter after the retirement of my former partner, Skyline was top of my list.”
John Gustafson, president of Skyline Advisors, added, “We are excited to have Michael on the team to expand both our geographic reach as well as deepen our industry expertise in the Industrial practice area. Michael fits our ideal profile for leadership by not only having deal experience as a transaction advisor but also hands-on deal experience as an owner and executive of operating companies that have conducted merger and acquisition transactions. We believe strongly in bringing experience from all sides of the deal table.”
Michael has a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and a Juris Doctorate from Indiana University. He serves on the board of directors of the Midwest Business Brokers and Intermediaries (MBBI) organization and is a member of The Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors (AM&AA).
