PRESS RELEASE — BOSTON — G2 Capital Advisors (“G2”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its Technology & Business Services (TBS) industry team, with the addition of Jarl Berntzen as Managing Director and newly appointed Technology and Business Services Practice Leader. Berntzen will be based in G2’s San Francisco office, reporting to Matthew Konkle, Head of Industry Teams for G2.
Berntzen brings to the firm a vast array of deep relationships from working with decidedly influential companies across the TBS industry for the past three decades. Prior to joining G2 Capital Advisors, he spent more than ten years in the mergers & acquisitions department at Goldman, Sachs & Co. and later built and led the M&A group at ThinkEquity Partners LLC, a national full service technology-focused investment bank where he advised a broad range of fast-growing technology companies on M&A and strategic alternatives. In addition to his deep investment banking background, Jarl has extensive industry experience having worked for IBM Corp. early on in his career and more recently lead the M&A and corporate development efforts at both Rambus Inc. and Dolby Laboratories Inc. where he was responsible for numerous acquisitions as well as for evaluating a vast number of public and private investment and acquisition opportunities.
With a longstanding transactional history and deep industry expertise, Berntzen will help enrich the G2 value proposition for our clients across the TBS practice. This addition to our highly qualified and experienced team at G2 will extend the firm’s consistent reputation in the space, leveraging the strength of the G2 brand with more activity and resources in the TBS verticals.
“I am pleased to welcome Jarl, whose arrival marks an important step toward the continued growth of our firm, building on a close integration of our investment banking and financial advisory capabilities and the success of our TBS franchise. Jarl’s background strongly complements our existing practice expertise and demonstrates our firm’s commitment to a continued focus on the depth of industry specialization across our platform,” said Jeffrey Unger, Chairman & CEO of G2 Capital Advisors.
“Adding a partner and professional of Jarl’s quality and accomplishments is a key milestone for our firm. We are proud to have assembled a team of highly-skilled, experienced leaders and the addition of Jarl as our new TBS practice leader will only further enhance our sector expertise,” said Matt Konkle, Head of Industry Teams and prior TBS Practice Leader for G2 Capital Advisors.
