"The AGC team of Russ Workman, Steve Santulli and Kyle Howard-Johnson proved invaluable at getting our company in front of a large universe of investors and ultimately finding the right partner that fit our strategic growth objectives. The team was responsive and diligent and they understand the cybersecurity industry inside and out. They helped us run a smooth and effective process and we couldn't be more satisfied with our outcome. We are excited about the future and wouldn't think twice about hiring AGC again."

— Bob Walters, CEO, Untangle
(AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to Untangle in September 2016) "AGC was invaluable in raising Foreground’s profile with potential buyers, and in conducting a rapid, intense and highly effective process when strategic interest arose. By leveraging relationships across both the Defense Intelligence community and enterprise security, AGC was able to find the right home for my company in Raytheon, in a deal that both sides view as a huge win. Russ Workman actively led a strong team that was committed to my success and made it happen with crisp execution and great advice. This outcome would not have happened without AGC and it certainly wouldn’t have been as successful as it was – Russ and his team have earned my highest recommendation.”
— David Amsler, President & CIO, Foreground Security
(AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to Foreground Security in October 2015) "Russ and the AGC team worked tirelessly as our trusted advisor to deliver a superior outcome to AirPatrol's employees and shareholders. Russ was instrumental in quarterbacking a complex and challenging deal to a successful completion, and Sysorex will provide the perfect home to leverage AirPatrol's mobile and cybersecurity expertise going forward. I would strongly recommend AGC as an M&A advisor."
