Founders Advisors recently celebrated its 18th anniversary with a crawfish boil at the site of its new Birmingham headquarters at 2400 5th Ave. S., known historically as the Hinkle Brothers Co. and Southern Furniture & Rug Co. building. In a post-COVID event, the crawfish boil attracted 200 clients, friends and family.
Founders Advisors was founded in 2003 by Duane Donner and has since grown to more than 30 professionals serving clients from three offices: Birmingham and Dallas and Houston, Texas. The merger and acquisition firm is focused on forming relationships with company founders, realizing that to the business owner, a merger or acquisition is not just a business decision, but a personal and emotional one. It serves middle market companies in multiple industries, including oil and gas, industrials, software, industrial technology, consumer and multi-unit, internet, digital media and health care.
