About Us

Senior level advisors and our personal touch are what defines us. Our clients are what inspire us.

Selling a business is different from growing a business.
It can be rewarding, but there will be highs, there will be lows, and you can’t learn on the job this time.

We've Been on Both Sides of The Table

We offer the unique perspective of having been CEOs as well as investment bankers. We’re as familiar with managing operations and cash flows as we are with managing the sale of a business. 

Our Partners have been in your very shoes. We are professional investment bankers who previously in our careers have sold our businesses. Having been there, we know how to navigate the tricky waters that may lay ahead once you set on this course. We will be by your side every step of the way, leading the team of trusted advisors you already have around you: your lawyer, your accountant, your wealth advisor.

As Business Owners

  • We understand firsthand the opportunities and challenges you face.
  • Our professionals have significant experience running companies at both board and operational levels.
  • We have been investors ourselves, so we understand the perspective of the venture capital and private equity communities.
  • Our unique edge as an investment banking firm is our entrepreneurial experience and perspective.

As Sell-Side Focused M&A Investment Bankers

  • We’ve been through the process countless times and closed hundreds of transactions
  • We’ve identified a gap in the market, as many firms push important details down to junior level employeess – we truly believe that a senior level touch throughout the M&A process is critical for a successful transaction.
  • We know how to identify and attract buyers
  • We know how to successfully position your company uniquely to potential buyers.

What Clients Are Saying About Dunn Rush

In my 40 plus years on Wall Street, I have met regiments of investment bankers. There have been none – i.e., not one – with the combined talent and integrity of Kevin Dunn.

John Adams / Founder, Adams Harkness & Hill and Chairman, Canaccord Adams (US)

Dunn Rush & Co. were amazing throughout the entire process of selling my company! Greg and Kevin quickly learned about an industry most people have never heard of (sonar transducers), and their extensive experience, creativity, and strategic thinking helped us navigate the process and deal effectively with the many unexpected turns of events. They are indefatigable, and were always available and communicating with us, day and night. Their attention to every details, their interest and excitement about our deal, and their endless patience answering our questions and concerns was second to none. Dunn Rush is categorically different from other investment banking firms, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else.

Carol Bowen / President, Materials Systems Inc.

I had never sold a business before and didn’t realize everything that went into it, or the time involved. One of my best decisions was hiring professionals, Dunn Rush & Co., to guide us through the sale process. Their experience, determination and guidance resulted in a very smooth and efficient transaction. They were especially helpful during the negotiations over price. We achieved optimal results for all constituents: our shareholders, employees and customers.

John D'Amelio / Former Owner of Precast Specialties Corp.

Our team worked with Dunn Rush on a project related to a number of assets at Woodco Machinery, Inc.  As this was our first time on the sell-side of a transaction their knowledge and guidance were invaluable to us.  They were proactive and ALWAYS accessible, which was instrumental in navigating the unique structure needed to get our deal done.  Their entire team was great to work with!
