I am happy to be part of a team that helps owners pinpoint drivers of business value, grow by securing capital and acquiring other companies, and most of all, exit for the highest prices and terms by creating competition among the best buyers.

He is skilled at helping owners drive value, develop and execute growth strategies, and successfully close transactions with the highest value.
Prior to his position as Vice President at The Forbes M+A Group, Max was the Director of Business Development at RSM (formerly McGladrey LLP), where he was responsible for understanding client needs and bringing together the right combination of resources to achieve their goals. He also honed his business transactional skills working for the law firms of Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C., Donelson Ciancio & Grant, P.C., and the Joffe Law Firm.
Max graduated with a J.D. from University of Dayton School of Law and served as a Director at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

Max firmly believes in giving back to the community. With a small group of motivated individuals, The Mile High Country Q & Brew was founded on the principle that together they could make a significant impact on the lives of children by raising awareness and money for Tennyson Center. To date they have raised over $1.5M benefiting abused and neglected kids at Tennyson Center for Children. Furthermore, he volunteers his time working with Junior Achievement, Adams County Public Schools, and the Denver Advisory Board. In his free time you will likely find him outside… skiing in winter, mountaineering or on a bike in summer. He also enjoys family time with his wife and daughter when not traveling with his Australian Rules Football teammates on the Denver Bulldogs.
