About Bigelow

Bigelow is the nationally known M + A Advisor exclusively dedicated to owners of high performing private companies. We partner with our Entrepreneur Owner-Manager (“EOM”) clients to reach their greatest potential personally and professionally by building and unlocking Enterprise Value.

We are an independently owned advisory boutique with a proven track record of achieving superior outcomes for our clients resulting in uncommon success both for our Firm, and its team members. Over the past several years, we have closed over $3 billion in transactions ranging in size from $30 to over $400 million. We represent clients in an intentionally broad range of industries, located throughout the United States.

Our belief: high performing EOMs are a unique species who lead their businesses and measure success differently than “corporate employees”. This makes the selection of the next owner of their highly successful businesses challenging and extremely important.  Freeing EOMs and their businesses can transform their life’s work into enduring legacies. Accordingly, we have resourced our team with the best talent and skills to successfully deal exclusively with them.

Chosen candidates have a clear path to potential Partnership. We are a collaborative team of senior, experienced professionals who have complementary skills and creative strengths to best serve our EOM clients. We have deliberately located our state of the art offices in Portsmouth, NH, 50 miles north of Boston, one of Outside Magazine’s Ten Best Cities to live in. Before applying to this position, we urge you to visit our website at, and read or listen to our book Enterprise Value (McGraw-Hill).
