Testimonials

Erik Dodier, Chief Executive Officer, PixelMEDIA, LLC 

We chose FOCUS over a number of other investment banks to execute this important initiative, and we never looked back on our decision. Their process and contacts were first-rate. George Shea and Manan Shah walked us through the process every step of the way, and were invaluable advisors who guided us through the transaction’s inevitable complexities. We were fortunate enough to be presented with multiple strong, competitive offers and are very pleased with the result and our new partner, BV Investment Partners.

PixelMEDIA has been recapitalized by BV Investment Partners
