Headwaters Welcomes Axia Advisors and Venture Marketeers to Technology Team in Boston

Denver, CO – March 9, 2010 – Headwaters MB announced that Axia Advisors LLC of Boston and Venture Marketeers LLC of Silicon Valley are joining Headwaters Managing Director Andy Paff to form Headwaters MB’s Technology team based in Boston.  The office is being opened with five professionals.

Philip W. Seefried, Co-Founder & CEO of Headwaters, said, “The lines between technology and classic industries are blurring.  Providing sound advice and executing mergers for technology & telecommunications clients requires not only financial savvy, but also technical expertise and engineering intelligence.  Our team has the requisite financial pedigree plus undergraduate engineering degrees and operating experience to enable in-depth technology understanding.  They have the ideal skill sets to provide banking services to these markets.”

John F. Ippolito, Founder and Managing Director of Axia Advisors, mentioned, “Since 2004, we have focused exclusively on the industrial technology deal space, and we look forward to joining a much larger platform, with a national footprint and international reach.  Headwaters’ platform will also allow us to provide more services and solutions to our clients.”

Horacio Facca, Founding Partner at Venture Marketeers, added.  “These are very exciting times.  Over the past six years we have focused in assisting promising, high-potential clients in technology, telecommunications and clean tech through various stages of the corporate lifecycle.  We have built strong client relationships and a solid reputation in the business community both in the U.S. and internationally.”

“The addition of John and Horacio to the Boston Headwaters team will provide significant experience and breadth to our services at a time when our clients are attempting to understand the altered financial environment,” said Paff, who joined Headwaters in 2008 after a long highly-successful career in technology senior management, most recently as Cedar Point Communications’ CEO.
