ACG N.J. founder, Gibbons veteran Mark Kuehn joins DAK Group

The DAK Group on Thursday announced that Mark Kuehn joined the firm as a principal consultant, which he will do through MSKUEHN BUSINESS Consulting LLC.

Kuehn has a strong history working closely with middle-market and family/entrepreneur-owned companies as a trusted adviser and attorney, most recently at Gibbons P.C. since 1993. He draws upon a wealth of hands-on business ownership, management and financial advisory experience in addition to his many years of legal practice in which he concentrated on corporate representation, business transactions and mergers & acquisitions.

The DAK Group is an investment bank that advises midmarket businesses on mergers & acquisitions.

Kuehn is the founder of the New Jersey Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth. It was established in 2003, when he saw a need to gather New Jersey professionals, investors, business owners and executives involved in mergers & acquisitions on a regular basis to share information and network.

“Mark has an exceptional record for helping business owners build value in their companies,” Alan Scharfstein, president of the DAK Group said. “We are excited that he has joined the DAK team as we enable business owners to maximize and realize the value of their companies in New York, New Jersey and across the country.”

Kuehn currently serves as founding chairman of the New Jersey chapter and host to a number of ACG forums (CEO, CFO, In-House General Counsel and Corporate Development). He has also served on the board of directors for ACG’s New York chapter.

He was a hands-on entrepreneur for over 16 years and participated in founding, purchasing, turning around, selling and consulting for businesses in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, retail technology and services.

“I have admired the DAK Group for many years and am so excited about being part of the team,” Kuehn said. “I am looking forward to using my experience as a trusted adviser to midmarket companies and their owners, and to help them maximize the financial results of their lifetime efforts.”
