WestPark Capital Expands South Florida Office
Boca Raton, Florida…Continuing its growth in the further development of its national footprint in the financial services arena, WestPark Capital, (www.wpcapital.com) a full-service investment bank for small-to-mid-cap companies, focusing on emerging growth sectors, has recently moved and expanded its Boca Raton, Florida office. The 3600 square feet of Class A space office is located in the anchor office tower at 225 N.E. Mizner Boulevard, Suite 750, a central hub of commercial activity of offices, restaurants, and shops in the famed Mizner Park Complex.
“There are certain key markets in the United States in which to have a presence, “ says Richard Rappaport, CEO and Founder of Los Angeles-based WestPark Capital, “ and “South Florida is definitely among them.” Tony Pintsopoulos, President and Chief Financial Officer, of WestPark, further explains the company’s growth strategy. “Within South Florida, Mizner Park is central to all of the bigger cities, from West Palm Beach and Jupiter to the North, to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, to the South, geographically, it’s ideal and all within 45-minutes of three international airports.” Moreover, Pintsopoulos points out the value and significance of the breadth and depth of the wealth in South Florida. “Savvy investors from all over the world have second and third homes in this area, from New York to the Midwest, people come here to live and vacation, it’s just part of the lifestyle and culture of living in this tropical paradise we are thankful to be able to call our home.”
“It was important to have a major office in South Florida as part of our rapidly expanding network,” explains Frank Salvatore, Managing Director, Brokerage, one of the two principals behind the new WestPark Capital office along with partner, Doug Kaiser, also Managing Director, Brokerage. Both Salvatore and Kaiser are successful financial services industry veterans who joined WestPark Capital earlier in the year. Salvatore and Kaiser both have deep roots and long standing ties to the South Florida financial services community, having each led or managed the growth and development of major brokerage firms. “This is phase two of our plan,” says Salvatore regarding not just joining WestPark but opening the new South Florida office. “In addition to providing the traditional suite of financial and investment banking services,” says Doug Kaiser, “our edge will be the unique investment offerings and deal flow stemming from taking companies public and the IPOs WestPark generates from executing their revolutionary WRASP product.”
