SC&H’s Greg Hogan Promoted to a Director in SC&H Capital

Greg Hogan has plenty of reasons to be optimistic about 2017.

Recently named a Director of SC&H Capital, Hogan sees the firm’s investment banking arm having a strong year. SC&H Capital has already closed two deals this year and have multiple other transactions currently under Letter of Intent that are scheduled to close before the end of the first quarter.

“We are off to a great start in 2017,” says Hogan, 36. “We have a full pipeline to start 2017 with a lot of deals in various stages of getting done. We think it is going to be a very busy year.”

SC&H Capital is focused on mergers and acquisitions among businesses with revenue ranging from $15 million to $250 million. The group looks for deals in industries that include health care, government services, manufacturing, distribution, and professional services.

With more than 15 years of investment banking experience, Hogan helps keep SC&H’s pipeline filled in the business development role, oversees client engagements, and is responsible for deal execution. Last November, Hogan and his team advised Elkridge, Md.-based Unitec Inc., a leading manufacturer of point of sale payment kiosks for the car wash industry, on its acquisition by Akron, Ohio’s DRB Systems, LLC, a portfolio company of Prairie Capital.

In 2015, Hogan advised Orlando, Fla.-based Blue Jay Consulting, LLC, a leading provider of consulting services to hospital emergency departments, which was acquired by Royal Philips, a global health technology company in the Netherlands. He also advised government contractor Sage Management of Columbia, MD., in its acquisition by Xator Corp., a security, intelligence and information technology solutions company.

In addition to M&A work, Hogan oversees SC&H’s rapidly growing Employee Stock Ownership Plan practice. The firm’s ESOP practice, which is national in scope, has exploded and will likely grow at a significant pace this year, he says.

“Our ESOP practice has grown substantially over the past several years as we have continued to add new clients via new ESOP transactions,” Hogan notes. The business is being built in part by SC&H’s strong reputation among ESOP trustees, ERISA attorneys, and other bankers specializing in ESOPs, and Hogan’s aggressive speaking schedule.

Christopher Helmrath, Managing Director and Founder of SC&H’s Capital Group, praised Hogan for working hard to develop the practice. “He is making a real difference for our clients,” Helmrath said. “Greg represents everything we pride ourselves on at SC&H Capital. I am confident that with this promotion he’ll continue to provide our clients, prospects and referral sources with exceptional thinking and service.”

Outside of SC&H Capital, Hogan is a board member of The Arc Baltimore, a non-profit that supports more than 6,000 adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, and the Association for Corporate Growth, an organization of accountants, investment bankers, bankers, attorneys and professionals aiming to drive middle market growth. He resides in Federal Hill in Baltimore, Md.
