Ely joins VonLehman with nearly a decade of experience dealing with the sale and acquisition of private businesses. As Director of the firm’s M&A Advisory Group, he is directly responsible for consultation and advisory services relating to founder-owned private businesses.

Ely joined the financial services industry immediately after graduating from Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina, where he was a two-sport athlete. He served multiple groups at Bank of America and with a boutique investment bank. In his nine years of financial services experience, Ely has focused primarily on lower middle-market businesses (less than $150 million in sales).

Keeping with his lifelong passion for athletics, Ely is an avid sportsman and keeps to an admirable workout routine. He’s even been known to network with colleagues and business partners over a morning workout. Describing Ely as dedicated and reliable is an understatement.
