M&A Awards: ‘Finding the right buyer’ is mission critical for Charter Capital’s Streekstra

Born and raised in West Michigan, Mark Streekstra returned to Grand Rapids in 2019 to join investment banking firm Charter Capital Partners after working deals for nearly 12 years in Chicago at a multinational company. 

In less than three years back on his home turf, Streekstra has been promoted to managing director while growing the firm’s investment banking group and providing advisory services on M&A, capital raises, valuation and strategic planning. In particular, Streekstra focuses on industrial, technology and digital services.

At CharterStreekstra has applied a buyer’s experience after a nearly 12-year stint at Accenture to help middle market companies navigate the complexities of M&A. In his two-plus years at Charter CapitalStreekstra has led six successful transactions.

His formula for success: “Finding the right buyer and the right situation for our specific clients.” 

The formula worked for two deals that Streekstra advised on in 2021: the sale of DeWitt-based Dentco to Powerhouse Retail Services, a portfolio company of Lincolnshire Management, and the sale of Montague-based MasterTag to Avery, a subsidiary of Toronto-based CCL Industries Inc.

Streekstra’s work on the two deals was recognized with the MiBiz Dealmaker of the Year Awards in the adviser category. Read more
