Steven Egna, who has directed the business advisory services division at TBC for almost a decade, joins the rank of partner. After serving in various leadership, management and analytical roles for nearly 20 years, Egna was hired by the firm in 2005 to draw upon his diverse background to provide practical and relevant valuation-related guidance.

“Steve’s contributions to the firm’s clientele have been tremendous,” says MP James Drislane. “He has diversified and strengthened TBC’s client offerings through building the business advisory services division from the ground up and we are ecstatic to have him join the partner group.”

Egna, who specializes in the valuation of closely held businesses, including investment holding companies and professional practices, has developed the advisory services division at TBC over the last nine years.
