At Sutter Securities, we believe our most important resource is our staff of experienced professionals.

Sutter's three senior corporate finance professionals, Gil Matthews, Bob Muh and Mike Jacks each have more than 25 years of experience as investment bankers.

We specialize in assisting both private and publicly held corporations and organizations or trusts that act as fiduciaries in addressing critical issues in the areas of corporate finance and restructuring, business and management consulting, mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financing, and business valuations.

We have worked on transactions representing investors, lenders, companies, underwriters, unions and investment bankers. Our knowledge of financial markets and institutions, coupled with our line management experience, enables us to provide practical solutions to business and financing problems. We have worked closely with businesses in many industries including, but not limited to: manufacturing, distribution, technology, food processing, restaurants, natural resources, transportation, financial services and real estate.

Our experience covers a diverse range of organizations - from working with start-up companies to large public corporations, fast-track growth businesses and complicated transactions involving companies in or near bankruptcy. Our professional team has been called upon to assist owners and managers in planning and operations as well as working with shareholders to maximize the value of their investment.
