LOS ANGELES, August 12, 2020 — Palm Tree LLC, a consulting and advisory firm focused on M&A and the private equity investment cycle, is pleased to announce that Bryan Crutchfield will join the firm as a Senior Vice President. Mr. Crutchfield is a New York-based senior leader who will focus on growing the consulting and capital markets advisory practices of Palm Tree in the Northeast.
“I have tracked Palm Tree for several years and I believe its Transaction, Transition, and Transformation service offerings differentiate it in the market,” said Mr. Crutchfield. “I look forward to joining the firm and working to continue its East Coast growth trajectory.”
Mr. Crutchfield brings deep experience with sponsor-backed financial advisory services firms, having held Managing Director roles at Alterity Group and Accordion Partners, among others. “I believe that the core Palm Tree philosophy of working with an asset throughout its lifetime in a portfolio allows for true value creation,” said Mr. Crutchfield. “At Palm Tree, we do more than simply providing execution services and accounting-led initiatives.
