Our Story

Our Story

Waypoint Private Capital, founded in 2009, is an independent investment banking firm specializing in M&A advisory services for U.S. based privately held middle-market businesses. We have experience and expertise across a variety of industries, with a focus on the manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

The boutique firm emerged as the successor to a private equity and investment banking firm with which co-founders Jim Holder and Steve Sprindis were previously affiliated.

Over the past 15 years, Waypoint Private Capital has helped hundreds of business owners and their management teams develop and execute strategies aimed at growing and enhancing the value of their companies. This includes acquiring other companies, sourcing capital for growth and recapitalization, and ultimately selling their company (sometimes selling it twice) at the right time and for the right price.

We are enthusiastic about the future of our company and look forward to the opportunity to serve you or your clients. We welcome all inquiries and referrals. We are eager to start a conversation with you and look forward to answer all your questions.
