We Know Your Industry

Middle market government contractors and IT firms are challenged to attract and retain top talent, capitalize on strategic growth opportunities, and expand their capabilities and services to meet evolving client needs and an ever-changing economic and political landscape.

To thrive in this environment, you need a strategic partner that knows your industry and understands what you face. That’s CCA.

CCA has a proven track record of achieving successful outcomes for contractors that provide federal, state, or local government agencies with defense, cybersecurity, and other critical systems and services, as well as IT companies that offer software development, project or program management, support, training, or hardware/software installation services to private sector clients.

Government Contractors

Government contractors turn to CCA for strategic advisory services that help them expand their scale and scope to compete for large, lucrative contracts or position themselves to eventually attract a buyer. And when it’s time to sell, they rely on CCA’s investment banking services to prepare them for the rigorous due diligence involved in selling a business in a highly regulated industry, with unique legal, compliance, and contractual issues.

IT Firms

IT firms depend on CCA for strategic advisory services that help them grow the business, attract top talent with fair-valued equity compensation offerings, and plan for an eventual exit or succession. And when IT firms are ready to sell, CCA’s investment banking services help them navigate the due diligence process and maximize the sale price and terms for the best outcome.

What Our Clients Say About CCA

“Chesapeake Corporate Advisors provided the sound guidance, wherewithal, and expertise every step of the way, from the very beginning as we were assessing the opportunity, all the way through to the final moments of the transaction. Their calming influence over what was an emotional, and at times, exhausting experience was critical, as was their willingness to step back and help ensure we were working on and making the right decision at the right time.”

Angelo Otterbein,


“Any business owner that has been through a merger knows how stressful that can be. Fortunately, though, Charlie was able to present ideas and options that both parties immediately found logical, fair, and understandable. What I had anticipated as potentially being the ‘hard part’ of the negotiations actually became the ‘easy part’ due to Charlie and Mike’s experience, and their level-handed approach with all parties. I can’t say enough good things about how CCA made this merger a positive start to a great opportunity for all of us!”
