THE MADROCK TEAM
Matt Springer of Madrock Advisors has served Symphony on several occasions with great competency and superb results. In these days of single competency experts, it is a real pleasure to work with such a broadly-based expert as Matt. Not only does he have access to numerous financial resources with creative structures, but his grasp of the legal and accounting issues related to financial transactions is second to none.
Add to these two capabilities, Matt is the best negotiator I know. We feel extremely confident placing our interests in Matt’s hands, knowing that he will bring home the best deal possible."
