Waypoint Private Capital Inc., a Wisconsin-based investment banking firm, has opened an office in downtown Springdale.
Randy Meier is the managing director of the office at 2821 Alliance Place. He has more than 30 years of experience in entrepreneurial and executive management, financial consulting and private investing.
Meier began his career as a CPA with PricewaterhouseCoopers before beginning a career as a manager and owner of middle market companies. Meier and his wife Christine built and successfully sold DMD Industries, a wholesale paper products manufacturer and distributor that had 450 employees in Springdale.
Before that, they built and sold Canvas Corp. Brands, designing and manufacturing products for the retail craft industry. During the periods of growth for both companies, Meier said, they acquired and integrated numerous companies into their operations.
Waypoint was founded in 2009 and serves middle-market companies, with M&A and capital raise services. The firm has additional offices in Oklahoma (2), Illinois and Missouri.
