“I’ve retained Architect Partners several times for a simple reason: they’re the best bankers I’ve ever worked with – and I’ve worked with many. They are thoughtful, detail oriented, strategic, analytically driven, and relentless. The partners drive the overall engagement, and have an active, hands-on approach that in my experience is far from typical. And they’re good guys. I recommend them very highly.”
