Protegrity Advisors, a leading M&A advisory firm headquartered in Ronkonkoma, New York, is pleased to announce that it has attracted growth capital and has appointed Mark Pollack as its new President along with the addition of David Sterling and Brad Dubler to its Advisory Board.
“We are honored to have earned investor confidence and thrilled to welcome Mark to the team,” said Gregg Schor, Protegrity Advisor’s CEO. “One of our many differentiators in the market is that prior to joining Protegrity our team has been on all sides of M&A transactions, including on our clients’ side of the table – Mark exemplifies this and also brings a track record of dedication, team-building and exponential growth.”
Pollack was previously the Co-Founder, President & CEO of Sage Parts, a world leader in the aftermarket aviation ground support equipment sector. Under Mark’s leadership, the company transformed the aftermarket for aviation GSE, and built Sage Parts from 3 employees to over 350 employees, with more than 24 locations on 5 continents, generating annual revenues in excess of $125 Million and cumulative revenue of over $2 billion. During his career Mark has led strategic acquisitions (domestic and international) and capital raises, as well as having his own successful exits.
Mark expressed his enthusiasm for his new role, stating, “I was incredibly impressed with Protegrity and its ability to provide family-owned businesses with access to M&A expertise and relationships usually only available to much larger companies as well as Protegrity’s access to a full range of buyers, including public companies, strategics and private equity buyers. I look forward to being part of this talented team, growing the business while continuing to deliver exceptional value to our clients.”
In addition to Mark Pollack’s appointment, Protegrity announced that David Sterling and Brad Dubler will be joining its highly qualified Advisory Board.
David has been President & CEO of SterlingRisk for over 36 years, and since that time the company has grown over 10 times in size to become one of the largest privately-owned insurance brokerages in America with more than 250 employees.
Brad Dubler is a Managing Partner and Executive Vice President at SterlingRisk. His proactive, hands-on approach to complex risk management issues and track record of advising corporate clients on critical business decisions that impact all aspects of a company’s operations and profitability help make Brad a recognized leader in his field.
“We are also very excited to have David and Brad join our Advisory Board.” stated Schor. “Their expertise and lengthy experience advising management teams across so many different business verticals perfectly align with our mission to provide top-tier advisory services for the benefit of our clients.”
