We are creative thinkers relentlessly disrupting a tired industry.

How It All Started

We started Barney because we couldn’t find competent M&A advisors to sell our own digital businesses. They were either way too out-of-touch or had no understanding of the digital space. We fixed it.

Now we’ve expanded our playbook and will help more than 100 founders of agencies go through an exit this year.

How We Fixed It

We set out to build the best acquisition experience in the world, and we made it the core of what we do. We’re now the largest acquisition firm for agencies in the US – with a database boasting more than 25,000 buyers; offices dotting the globe from Los Angeles to London; and a dynamic portfolio saturated in marketing, technology and digital mergers and acquisitions. We have expanded our roots, while maintaining our core competencies as a true advisor dedicated to our client’s goals.

A Team of Trailblazers

Our team mirrors the founders with whom we guide through this process: hungry overachievers with a deep-rooted need to win. Many come from humble backgrounds. Many formed or built companies of their own before joining Barney. Each shares the mindset of an entrepreneur, and knows what it means to walk that path.

A Better Experience

We are much more than a M&A partner that helps guide founders through exits when the timing is right for them. We are trail blazers and game changers, challenging ourselves to disrupt the way it’s always been done.
