About Solomon Partners

Founded in 1989 Solomon Partners is a financial advisory firm and one of the first independent investment banks. It offers a global reach through its partnership with Natixis, the international corporate, investment, insurance, and financial services arm of Groupe BPCE, the second largest banking group in France and one of the 20 largest banks in the world measured by total assets. 

The partnership enables Solomon Partners to provide its clients with global advisory services and proprietary access to financing capabilities throughout Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and the Americas. Today, the firm’s upper management includes Peter J. Solomon, the firm’s founder and chairman; Marc S. Cooper, CEO; Kenneth D. Baronoff, vice chairman; and Tammy Sheffer, chief operating officer.

Solomon Partners offers strategic and financial advice to owners, chief executives, senior management, and boards of directors of public and private companies. The firm’s verticals include business services; consumer retail; financial sponsors; fintech; grocery, pharmacy, and restaurants; healthcare; industrials; infrastructure, power and renewables; media; and technology. 

Solomon Partners also provides expertise through its product capabilities in mergers and acquisitions, capital transformation and debt advisory and restructuring, financing advisory, and activism defense. Solomon Partners has worked as an advisor to clients on a number of large transactions. Its clients range from multinational, large-capitalization corporations to smaller, fast-growth companies. Its client list has included Netflix, SiriusXM, SoulCycle, Under Armour, TJX, Outfront Media, Banijay, Boxed, Patient Funding Alternatives, Prime Therapeutics, AMI Entertainment, Mood Media, and Ports America Group.

Solomon Partners’ recent deal activity spans numerous sectors and practice areas. The firm recently advised HeartLand on its sale to Pritzker Private Capital, the Special Committee of SiriusXM's Board of Directors on SiriusXM's $28 billion combination with Liberty SiriusXM Tracking Stock Group, the Special Committee of System1’s Board of Directors on its $340 million sale of Total Security to Just Develop It, El Rancho Supermercado on its sale to Heritage Grocers Group (an Apollo portfolio company), and OUTFRONT Media on the pending C$410 million sale of its Canadian business to Bell Media, among many more significant transactions.
