Martin O'Neill, Chesapeake Corporate Advisors

Chesapeake Corporate Advisors (CCA) is pleased to announce that value creation leader and business executive Martin O’Neill has joined the firm as Managing Director. O’Neill was formerly the Chief Operating Officer of ClearEdge.

O’Neill brings over twenty years of experience in corporate leadership and corporate advisory services to CCA. He has spent his entire career in the middle market and has authored four books on value creation, leadership and culture. Throughout his career, he has focused on creating long term enterprise value for his clients and those companies he operated including Conquest and Boeing. O’Neill has strong ties in the regional business community with a deep focus in government services with particular experience in the National Security market.

O’Neill will be a Managing Director in the Corporate Strategy Practice and will be primarily providing advisory services to clients in the government services, technology and business services sectors.

CCA, founded in 2005, is a boutique investment banking and corporate advisory firm that successfully serves investor-owned and closely held emerging growth and middle market companies that are looking to create and/or realize shareholder value. O’Neill’s “Building Business Value” approach, combined with his extensive network of professional relationships, and National Security market sector knowledge, will enhance CCA’s commitment to the middle market.

It was Chesapeake Corporate Advisors’ unique approach to investment banking and corporate advisory services that attracted O’Neill to the firm. Building long term relationships and helping a company exit the market when it is right for them is of the utmost importance to O’Neill.

“Marty brings a unique understanding of the middle market and that will be a tremendous asset to both our investment banking team and our strategic advisory team,” says Charlie Maskell, Founder and CEO of CCA. “He’s a great fit for CCA in terms of core values, reputation and his methodology for building business value. We are thrilled to have Marty join the CCA team.”

“I’m excited to join Charlie Maskell and the CCA team. I’ve watched their evolution as a firm for the last ten years and have always been impressed by the value they delivery to their clients”, says O’Neill. “The Chesapeake Corporate Advisors philosophy of no two companies being the same is a perfect fit for me. Their focus on the middle market, the uniqueness of each client, and my passion around building business value is a great fit.”
