Vaquero Capital Awarded Technology Investment Bank of the Year and M&A Deal of the Year


Vaquero Capital received the Technology Investment Bank of the Year Award from the Global M&A Network at the 10th Annual Americas M&A Atlas Awards held in New York on November 29, 2018. Vaquero also received a 2018 M&A Deal of the Year Award as advisor to Student Brands on its sale to Barnes & Noble Education.

This is a credit to the incredible work that our team has done throughout this year, last year, and previous years that provided the foundation for our success, said Managing Partner of Vaquero Capital, David Grove. We are thrilled that Blaine Vess and Thomas Swalla were recognized for their accomplishments. There are many Vaquero clients that could have been recognized as well.

“Vaquero was an instrumental partner in helping Student Brands realize liquidity while ensuring that the business was well positioned for long term success, said Thomas Swalla, the former CEO of Student Brands. Vaquero provided strategic guidance throughout the entire process that was informative and genuinely educational. They worked incredibly hard and intelligently to ensure we met our challenging objective.”

The M&A Atlas Awards honors the best value-creating deals, outstanding firms, illustrious dealmakers, and legendary growth leaders throughout the international corporate, investment, restructuring and transactional communities. The finalists are selected based on multiple deal criteria, including deal and sector complexity and stakeholder impact.
