Industry: Investment Banking
Cleary Gull Inc. is a boutique investment banking firm that primarily advises privately held companies, private equity firms and public companies on middle market sales, divestitures, mergers and acquisitions, raising private debt and equity capital, and other transactions. Cleary Gull has experience in the manufacturing, consumer, business and industrial services, health care, software, and technology industries.
Cleary Gull’s revenues, transaction volume and number of employees have grown significantly over the past few years. President and managing director Ronald Miller attributes this growth to the favorable capital markets, increased number of buyers and lenders, and the “limited number of high quality companies for sale.”
In the past few years, Clearly Gull has moved offices, redesigned its internal process, expanded its staff, and received recognition as a great place to work two years in a row.
Additionally, Miller says that Cleary Gull will continue to provide “Wall Street caliber level of expertise and client service” and help represent entrepreneurs, private equity funds, and middle market public companies.

“My parents taught me that your reputation is the most valuable asset you have in both your work and personal life. Economic and financial situations change. People switch jobs easily; and businesses succeed or fail. If you act according to the highest ethical standards, you will succeed in the long run.”
