Conway MacKenzie expanded the presence of its energy transactions services team in Houston with the appointment of Anthony Bohnert on May 14.
Bohnert joins the global management consulting and financial advisory firm to lead Conway Mackenzie’s energy-focused M&A due diligence offering.
Conway Mackenzie said May 14 Bohnert will carve-out assistance for domestic and international transactions and, in addition to traditional buy-side and sell-side diligence, he will also oversee FCPA-focused buy-side diligence.
Over the last decade, Conway MacKenzie’s energy advisory services team has successfully completed more than 100 energy restructuring mandates and continues to make sizeable investments in expanding lines of service. The addition of Bohnert to the firm’s team is driven by market demand for broader service offerings, said John T. Young Jr., senior managing director of Conway MacKenzie.
“The days of single-offering boutiques have passed, and we are focused on our ability to provide clients with solutions throughout the M&A lifecycle,” Young said in a statement on May 14. “The addition of Tony is a significant step in the direction of solidifying Conway MacKenzie as a fully equipped advisory partner to the clients we serve.”
Bohnert joins Conway MacKenzie with nearly four decades of experience in various sectors of finance across multiple industries, including six years as CFO of Silver Eagle Distributors, a Houston-based distributor of Anheuser-Busch products.
Most recently, he was a partner for 15 years at KPMG, where he led the U.S. deal advisory energy practice. At KPMG, Bohnert provided M&A advisory services to both private equity and corporate clients on more than 300 U.S. and cross-border transactions, according to the press release.
Headquartered in Detroit, Conway MacKenzie has 13 offices worldwide, including Houston, which opened roughly 10 years ago.
“Over the past 10 years, I’ve witnessed Conway MacKenzie’s Houston team grow to become one of the most trusted resources to some of the industry’s biggest players. ... I look forward to working with the team as they continue to expand their portfolio in Houston,” Bohnert said in a statement.
