March 02, 2020

BDO is proud to announce that Geneva Merger & Acquisition Services of Canada Inc. (Geneva), an M&A advisory firm located in Toronto, Ontario, will be joining forces with our Corporate Finance business. We are very excited to have Geneva join BDO, which will help the firm continue to strengthen its M&A advisory business.

Established in 1998, Geneva has a great culture and the deep mid-market experience that aligns well with BDO’s core M&A advisory business.

“This is a great opportunity to grow our M&A business,” says Michael Morrow, BDO’s National M&A and Capital Advisory leader. “Geneva’s team will add further M&A expertise in the mid-market and will play a critical role in covering clients nationally. In particular the Geneva team will enhance our capabilities and coverage in the Southwest Ontario region, which we see as a very important market and for us to be able to serve locally.”

Brian Trainor, Managing Partner will be a key component to our Southwest Ontario strategy, helping to expand and invest in the region. “We think this partnership is a terrific fit and look forward to working together to accelerate growth in the business,” says Brian. “Geneva’s long track record of success in working with privately held, owner operated companies in the mid-market will be complementary to BDO’s growing M&A platform.”

“We are very happy with the fit between Geneva and BDO,” says Cal Cochrane, Geneva’s Senior Partner. “We are confident that Geneva clients will be well-served by the continuing services of Brian Trainor combined with the resources of BDO and very happy that the professional services provided by Geneva to the M&A mid-market will continue under the BDO banner.”
