CRAIG CASTELLI is the Founder and CEO of Caber Hill Advisors. He launched Caber Hill in 2014 in order to solve a problem plaguing millions of business owners: a lack of qualified, experienced advisory firms willing to serve small and middle market companies.
Caber Hill’s innovative approach combines the best elements of the local business brokerage community and the large, very expensive investment banks. Furthermore, Mr. Castelli and his team have all previously worked in the markets that they now serve. As a result, his clients receive individualized attention and expert guidance specific to their industries. Caber Hill’s current focus areas include healthcare, facilities services, business services, and food & beverage.
Mr. Castelli has extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, business development, and sales management. He has advised hundreds of companies ranging from small, privately held businesses to public companies and private equity firms. In addition to serving as Caber Hill’s CEO, Mr. Castelli heads the firm’s healthcare practice. Caber Hill has experienced significant annual growth in its dental client base, largely attributed to the firm’s unique approach compared to traditional practice brokers.
For independent practice owners, he brings a wealth of knowledge about practice transactions, capitol, market fluctuations, how to accelerate a practice’s growth, and how to build a strategy around growing toward and achieving an exit. Craig will provide information and guidance about everything from capitol, practice purchase sales, acquisitions, and transactions.
Before founding Caber Hill, Mr. Castelli spent three years with a boutique investment banking firm and the seven years before that working in sales, business development, and M&A for Siemens Healthcare.
He received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Marquette University and is a licensed Illinois Business Broker and a Certified Transaction Advisor. He is a member of the board of directors of Erie Neighborhood House, a 130-year-old community services agency based in Chicago’s near West Side. Additionally, he is a member of the the Chicago Leadership Alliance, the University Club of Chicago, the Association for Corporate Growth, and the Exit Planning Institute.
