See what our clients have to say:

The Capstone team did a fantastic job finding a great fit for Avenger even with all the Covid challenges in 2020. Just as I knew little about brokerage when I first started Avenger, I knew little about how to sell a company when we started down this path. Without Capstone's expert guidance I would have been bogged down with all the things involved to sell a complex company.

Don Godsey Founder, Avenger Logistics

What a great outcome, both for my family and for the company. Every deal like this is a journey. Our journey was made longer and more difficult by Covid, but the Capstone team was unwavering throughout. We very much appreciated their professional approach and personal commitment to getting a great result for our family.

Jim Mohead Founder, Inland Dredging

We have nothing but great things to say about the team at Capstone. We engaged the Transportation & Logistics team very early in order to help us gauge the market and to benchmark our performance as we prepared for a transaction. They were extremely helpful with providing guidance and analytics that refined our timing to market and overall strategy. We benefited greatly from their industry expertise and transaction experience.
