Today, LGA announces that Ken Segal has joined the company as a Partner and head of the firm’s Business Advisory Practice Group. As many businesses are struggling with declining revenue and challenging layoffs, LGA is adding a valuable resource to help guide its clients through this turbulent time caused by COVID-19.
Segal has more than 25 years of experience in capital markets, credit, investment banking, portfolio acquisitions, trading, structured finance, equipment finance, and lending. His clients range from regional, national and international businesses and he has advised private equity firms, corporations, and finance companies, completing over 150 assignments with an aggregate deal value of $20 billion.
“This is a great opportunity for me, LGA, and our collective client base,” said Segal. “As a sole practitioner, I have successfully advised organizations of varied sizes, complexity, and relative health so that they are able to not only survive, but prosper, even in these uncertain times. My goal is to proactively anticipate what to do during an economic downturn so my clients are in a position to be on the offense in times like these. With my skills combined with the talented team at LGA, we can guide any business through this storm.”
Through his advisory practice, JMSeas, Segal supported companies by providing financial modeling, interacting with stakeholders, enhancing outside perception and ensuring alignment of capital and liquidity. He takes pride in enhancing corporations, creating and preserving jobs and developing long-term relationships. By joining his practice with LGA, Segal will play a pivotal role in growing LGA’s Business Advisory Practice, delivering outstanding client service and bringing a fresh viewpoint to LGA.
