We are grateful to add a new Board Member to our Reality Changers Family.
Our Reality Changers family continues to grow! This week we are excited to welcome two new board members–Nick Moran and Channing Hamlet–to the Reality Changers team. Today, we meet Channing, Managing Director of Investment Banking & Valuation at Objective Capital Partners, LLC and Objective Valuation, LLC.
Channing Hamlet is a Managing Director at Objective Capital Partners, focused on leading the firm’s business valuation practice and transaction execution for its investment banking practice. Mr. Hamlet is a results-driven executive that has 25+ years of experience advising business owners on management issues, transaction execution and business valuation. He is able to draw on a diverse background that includes direct management experience as well as strategy consulting, private equity investing, investment banking and business appraisal experience.
Prior to joining Objective, Mr. Hamlet served as a Managing Director of Cabrillo Advisors, where he was instrumental in growing its valuation practice from its inception to a national practice serving more than 700 clients in five years. During this period, he was responsible for managing a team of approximately 25 professionals that conducted a variety of business valuation assignments including tax compliance (409a, estate and gift), fair value (ASC 820, ASC 350, ASC 805) as well as strategic advisory assignments. His experience ranges from working with early stage companies on relatively simple stock option valuation assignments up to IPO stage companies with complex capitalization tables and significant scrutiny from Big 4 accounting firms and the SEC.
Previously, he served as a Director at Vistage where he focused on business development, acquisitions and new business initiatives. Prior to joining Vistage, Mr. Hamlet served on the investment team at LLR Partners, a $260 million private-equity firm which invested in and acquired 25 companies during his tenure. Prior to LLR Partners he was a member of Legg Mason’s Investment Banking group, where he focused on middle market M&A and corporate advisory assignments.
Channing is very involved in the Los Angeles and San Diego business communities, and regularly appears as a panelist or speaker for multiple organizations including ACG, EPI, EO, CFO Leadership Council, Southern California Institute, and more. He has also been recognized many times for his excellence in investment banking. Most recently he was chosen as an Investment Banking Visionary 2021 in the inaugural issue of the Banking and Finance Magazine created and published by the Los Angeles Times. He was also recognized this year by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a Leader of Influence: Investment Bankers 2020.
Thank you again to all of our Board Members for their service to the Reality Changers community. We are grateful to have you on our team.
