Who We Are

Blue Ops specializes in M&A Advisory and business optimization. After more than a decade in business and hundreds of M&A transactions, we’ve learned the journey from initial due diligence to the final exit is much like climbing a mountain. When you team with expert guides, take tested trails, and use quality gear, you have significantly less risk and an exponentially greater chance of reaching higher peaks.

As such, we leverage people, processes, systems, and relationships to aid our clients at every stage of the M&A and private equity ownership cycle.

Blue Ops Our People icon


Like the premier guides used to summit Everest or K2, we have seasoned M&A professionals who have thousands of hours on the “mountain.” From best-in-class buy side & sell side support to in-seat operating roles, our team’s extensive training and experience gives our clients an edge and helps them to achieve some of their “highest” successes.

Blue Ops Our Processes icon


Why blaze new trails when we know the best routes with the least risk? Whether acclimatizing your new acquisition with our 100-day onboarding playbook or ensuring your business has its bags packed before going to market, we have the playbooks and approaches to ensure each “climb” is a success.

Blue Ops Our Systems icon


Although it’s always possible to summit Everest without the best climbing gear, why would you? For years, we have been at the forefront of providing the best M&A, data analytics and FP&A systems available to our clients - reducing risk, speeding execution and ultimately delivering the best returns.
