Lombard Global, Inc. http://www.lombardglobal.com, a global corporate finance and management advisory firm, today announced a key alliance with Glendale Capital Partners http://www.glendalecapitalpartners.com in to its flagship Corporate Finance practice. This strategic alliance will add depth and breadth to both firms by adding an international, technology and Texas focus to a strong traditional industry footprint with roots in the Midwest. It will extend client relationships with transaction advisory and other management consulting offerings.

According to William Billeaud, Managing Partner of Lombard Global, Inc., “In business, especially in corporate finance, it’s critical that your closest partners have both competence and high business integrity. The regulatory environment in the U.S. is probably the most stringent in the world.

“I have personally known and have done business with the leaders of Glendale Capital Partners since the 1970’s. Our families were close friends and we grew up together. I watched them succeed at life and in business. As a result, I am delighted to be able to work with Glendale closely on all aspects of our corporate finance practice. It will be rewarding and a lot of fun.”

Mike Rami, a founding partner at Glendale Capital Partners added, “We’re pleased to have this opportunity to align with Lombard. We’ve known Bill for many years and welcome his firm’s international and technology focus, as well as a footprint in Texas, a huge market for us. Their management consulting practice, particularly in advanced analytics, creates opportunities to extend our corporate finance relationships.”
