What Our Clients Have to Say

CCA has been a strategic partner for Century over the last 25 years. We have worked closely with Charlie and the CCA Corporate Advisory team to execute acquisitions in the Mid-Atlantic and grow shareholder value. Century is extremely pleased with the Investment Banking team at CCA and their contribution to the beginning of a mutually beneficial partnership with Kleinfelder.

Francis Smyth

Century President & CEO

CCA’s guidance and support as we prepared for an acquisition by a leading public company was first-class, as Charlie Maskell and Tim Brasel shepherded us through every aspect of the transaction. Finding the perfect partner in Floor & Decor allows us to accelerate our growth plans into many untapped and highly fragmented markets across the United States, while maintaining our unique culture.”
