Patrick Morin

Patrick Morin joined Transact Capital as Managing Director in 2012, bringing with him two decades of experience at GE, Wall Street, investing in companies, and offering strategic consultation to many business owners. His love for teaching business owners how to maximize the value of their businesses eventually translated to assisting those same business owners to successfully exit their business at the highest potential value. When he completed his first staffing sale transaction in 2014, he realized the huge demand by strategic buyers and private equity to consolidate this fragmented industry. Attending staffing conferences led to addressing those audiences from the dias and keynoting others. From that first deal forward Patrick was determined to become a major advisor to staffing business owners, which is exhibited by his many closed transactions in the industry. He has focused his practice on staffing and has developed a large network of national and international industry players.

Jim Sowers

Jim Sowers is a Managing Partner at Transact Capital. He has over 25 years of finance experience in acquisitions and capital markets, including investment banking experience with BB&T Capital Markets and Sovereign Advisors along with corporate experience including IBM, GE, PepsiCo, and LandAmerica. Jim spent eight years as an investment banker for BB&T Capital Markets and Sovereign Advisors where he specialized in restaurants and consumer products. He completed numerous transactions including IPOs, selling companies, strategic acquisitions, raising private debt and equity, fairness opinions, and business valuations. Jim began his career in the corporate world working as an engineer with IBM, in the treasury departments of IBM and PepsiCo, in corporate acquisitions with PepsiCo and LandAmerica, and in financial planning and analysis with PepsiCo and GE.  Jim earned his B.S. in Systems Engineering and a M.B.A. from Darden at the University of Virginia.
