DAK Group welcomes Oatway to Strategic Leadership Advisory practice

The DAK Group on Monday said Steve Oatway has joined the firm as a principal in the Strategic Leadership Advisory practice.

The Rochelle Park-based investment bank that specializes in guiding middle-market companies said Oatway’s more than 30 years’ experience leading closely held family businesses and entrepreneurial companies will be invaluable to its clients as they navigate the opportunities and challenges in today’s market.

Companies engage DAK’s Strategic Leadership Advisory team for a variety of reasons. They may be tuning-up the business for an exit, planning to transfer it to the next generation or entrusting it to the management team. DAK’s market knowledge, honed from over 750 transactions, is an invaluable asset to business owners looking to maximize the value of their company.

“Steve will be instrumental as a strategic adviser collaborating with clients to develop or refresh company vision, enhance strategies and most critically collaborate on execution plans, resulting in maximizing the value of their company,” Alan Scharfstein, CEO of the DAK Group, said.
