Boxwood Expands its Team of Seasoned M&A Professionals


Richmond, VA – (July 30, 2013) Boxwood Partners, together with its affiliate Boxwood Capital Partners, is an integrated mid-market M&A advisory and private equity firm based in Richmond, VA. 

“We are very excited to welcome Brian back to Boxwood. His experience in New York will serve as a solid foundation for his role with Boxwood, and we expect him to be an integral part of the firm,” said Bobby Morris, Managing Director. 

Prior to joining Boxwood, Brian worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) Deals practice in New York within the Financial Due Diligence group. During his time with PwC, Brian performed due diligence and advisory services to both private equity and strategic investors in the consumer products, transportation and logistics, industrial products, pharmaceuticals/healthcare, and aerospace/defense industries. His new position brings him back to Richmond where he was Boxwood’s first summer intern in 2008. Brian earned his B.S.B.A in Accounting and Finance from the E. Claiborne Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond in 2008 and his Masters of Accountancy in 2009. While at Richmond, Brian served as the closer for the Spider baseball team while also serving on the Executive Committee of the NCAA’s Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Brian is also a Certified Public Accountant in the State of New York. The Port Washington, NY native recently moved to Richmond, VA. 

“I am excited to be back working alongside Pat, Bobby and the Boxwood team. I remember assisting with the initial diligence for Shockoe Commerce Group’s (a Boxwood Capital Portfolio Company) first acquisition in 2008, and its subsequent growth has been a true testament to the drive and determination of Boxwood team,” said Alas. 

Boxwood Partners’ most recent hire comes as Boxwood continues to expand its list of high profile engagements with leading middle market clients. “Brian will play a key role in continuing to expand our firm as we focus on providing top service to our clients throughout the transaction process and aim to make more portfolio acquisitions in the future. Our success thus far has provided us with the opportunity to make key additions like Brian with outstanding prior experience. We look forward to the key contributions he will bring to our firm as our client base continues to grow,” said Patrick Galleher, Managing Director.
