The name, Waterford Advisors, describes what we do and for whom.
Nearly every state in the U.S. has a city or village of Waterford, most often on a river, so named for the relatively shallow – and thus easily forded – depth at that very spot.
Our muse is in the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire, between the Green and White Mountains, where long ago towns on each side of the river were named Waterford.
We chose Waterford, where rivers can be crossed when a bridge isn’t an option, because knowing where fords lie and ensuring safe passage through swift currents requires experienced guides who earn their clients’ trust each and every day.
Just like we do.
Waterford comprises senior advisors and associates from across the technology, services and industrial spectrum. With expertise in corporate
development and strategy, our executive management services are infused with experience and candor that our clients value most.
Our firm was established in 1993 in New York City as investment bankers for Silicon Alley pioneers. We also served established firms in IT, healthcare, and various industrial sectors including steel, specialty chemicals, and the automotive aftermarket. In 2003, we merged with Stonebridge Management LLC to add professional management solutions to our portfolio of corporate finance and strategic advisory offerings.
Today we have distilled our nearly two-decade history into one focus: corporate development advisory services for established or emerging firms.
