Our Team

The partners of Indian River Advisors have come together to bring our clients a new and unique way to complete corporate transactions – whether it is to sell a company, to make a strategic acquisition, or to raise institutional debt or equity capital. Every partner at Indian River Advisors has been a C-level executive during his/her business career and has had experience completing successful corporate acquisitions, raising investment capital, or selling their own firms. We have combined decades of experience to help our clients complete transactions at the highest value. Securities transactions are conducted through StillPoint Capital, Member FINRA/SIPC.
