Calder Capital is excited to announce that our team is growing again!
In order to continue to position ourselves and our clients for continued success, we are expanding to the fast-growing industrial hub of Huntsville, Alabama. Huntsville, known as “rocket city” is a center of industry in defense, aerospace, and technology, with 31 companies on the latest Inc. 5000 list! This location in the Tennessee Valley puts us right into the prime geography of Atlanta, Nashville, and the Southeast United States.
Calder Capital is proud to announce the addition of our lead Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor in Huntsville. Wesley Sparks, a former Ranger-qualified infantry officer that retired as a U.S. Army acquisition program manager, will be leading advisory services in the region. Wesley has worked proposal and program management, capture, business development, and product strategy for the U.S. Government, as well as large defense contractors on programs over $13 Billion. He has owned his own consultancy, and he has bought and sold a major franchise location and territory. He is well versed and experienced in SBA financing. Mr. Sparks holds an MBA and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. He specializes in defense, aerospace, manufacturing, and industrial companies.
“We feel very fortunate not only to be in a position where we are able to expand our team but also to be bringing on a driven advisor with such a vast range of experience and expertise,” said Max Friar, Managing Partner of Calder Capital, about Mr. Sparks. “We pride ourselves on having advisors with diversified backgrounds and experiences, and we look forward to seeing what Wesley can bring to the table and how his experiences and skills can enhance the entire team.”
Wesley Sparks is optimistic about the future at Calder Capital, stating, “I was on the lookout for a new challenge and had been tracking Calder’s growth for a few years. Max and I hit it off immediately and I’m thrilled to be joining the Calder team. How the firm has handled themselves even in economic uncertainty is impressive, and I look forward to giving business owners in my own territory the confidence they need to close. With Calder’s team and systems behind us, we can accomplish that.”
