England & Company Opens Houston Office

Washington, DC and Houston, November 2014 – England & Company, a Washington, DC-based investment bank, today announced it has established a new office in Houston focused on serving middle-market companies throughout Texas and the Southwest. The firm also announced that Craig England, its founder and Chief Executive Officer, has relocated to Houston to lead this expansion. The Houston office marks England's fourth investment banking office in the United States.

"Texas is one of our nation's most critical and diverse centers of commerce and innovation," said Craig England. "Energy is our firm's most active industry sector, and we expect oil and gas to be very important to the development of our Houston office. We are equally excited by the excellence this region has in healthcare, technology and aerospace."

England & Company is unique among middle-market investment banks in that it combines a full breadth of advisory services (including mergers & acquisitions, private placements of debt and equity, and restructuring) with deep domain expertise from its dedicated industry practices and senior-level attention at every step.
