Consumer Retail

In choosing Solomon Partners as your advisor, you will be partnering with a team of highly experienced, senior consumer and retail experts with a demonstrated track record of deploying our knowledge to help clients realize strategic and financial success.


The Solomon Partners Consumer Retail Group provides strategic and financial advisory services to public and private companies in the retail, e-commerce, apparel, fashion and accessories, food and beverage, beauty and personal care, household products, consumer durables, home improvement, and health and wellness sectors.

Our industry knowledge and creative deal-making ability has helped our clients generate long-term shareholder value across all areas of consumer and retail. We have advised a diverse group of consumer products and retailing companies including, among others: Conair, Finish Line, Genesco, Groupe Rocher, Home Depot, Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC), Kering, Soul Cycle, Perry Ellis, PVH, Tractor Supply, Under Armour and VF Corporation.

We provide M&A, restructuring and financing advisory services to clients ranging from multi-national, large-capitalization corporations to smaller, fast-growth, privately-held companies. Our senior bankers also maintain close relationships with key industry participants, including SPAC sponsors, private equity firms, venture capital and family offices, giving us unparalleled access to ideal potential strategic and financial partners and investors.

Solomon Partners has extensive experience successfully navigating Special Committees through highly-scrutinized sale processes with significant shareholders to maximize value for all shareholders. Our team is equipped to handle all elements of the transaction – from providing a fairness opinion to running a full M&A process. As a result of our independence and lack of conflicts, we have advised on many high-profile transactions for clients, including American Apparel, American Greetings, Finish Line, Nutraceutical, Perry Ellis, Sears Hometown & Outlet, SkullCandy, Stein Mart and Wet Seal.



Our bankers have significant experience working with founders, entrepreneurs and executives of privately-held companies. We recognize the intricacies of early stage, high-growth businesses and help entrepreneurs reach the next stages of their companies’ lifecycle by raising growth capital, forming strategic partnerships and, when the time is right, monetizing their business.

Recent examples of our work with entrepreneurial companies include advising the founders of SoulCycle, Moose Knuckles, rag & bone, RevZilla and Flight Club in their strategic sales. These transactions allowed owners to recognize value today for future growth while diversifying their wealth to focus on new ventures.



Today, Solomon Partners is an independently-run affiliate of Natixis, part of Groupe BPCE, a top ten European and top 20 global bank. Our partnership provides our clients with global coverage across the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
