August has one true passion - to make a difference in the lives of his clients by understanding what they want to achieve and providing them with viable options.

What differentiates August from other advisors is his unending devotion to implementation and his in-depth knowledge and experience in the areas of strategic planning, compensation design, succession planning and mergers and acquisitions. He has been involved in more than 150 mergers or acquisitions and is a sought-after advisor in succession planning and M&A.

Service Philosophy

I serve my clients best when we collaborate together to create solutions to your firm's biggest issues. Together we will arrive at a solution based on your firm's individual needs

Client Services

I provide individualized assistance to guide your firm to implement changes. Our engagement is not over until the desired change has been achieved. Because of the intensity of this involvement, I work with only a small number of firms at any given time. 

Client Confidentiality

I practice complete client confidentiality, and therefore do not disclose the names of clients without permission. While I have strategic alliances with exceptional consultants, I am a sole practitioner, when you hire me, I am your engagement leader.

Service Guarantee

As a client of AQUILA Global Advisors, your satisfaction is guaranteed. I promise you quality service delivered in a timely and responsive manner with no surprises. If your expectations are not met, please let me know. I will acknowledge your concern and take immediate steps to resolve the issue.
