Giving Thanks

We have much to be thankful for this past year: our partners, a new office, great neighbors, and most of all the newest additions to our Kinzer team!

Kevin Cao joined us in February. His focus at Kinzer Partners is on financial analysis, valuation estimates, and analytical research. But his secret passion is for preparing amazing dishes for his family and friends. His spicy tofu recipe has inspired us to require that all team events be potluck.

“As the youngest member of the Kinzer team, I enjoy working with and learning from this group of intelligent and thoughtful people. They not only give me guidance on my career, but also inspire me to work harder and think bigger.”

Our next new face was Colin Overland, who settled into his desk in July. His strong background in economics and banking makes him a critical resource in our analyst group.  His skills in AV setup, heavy-box-carrying, and encyclopedic knowledge of Justin Beiber trivia make him irreplaceable.

“Kinzer is different and I like that. A lack of normal conventions throughout the firm allows me to approach projects and problems from any angle…making the normally monotonous tasks a lot more interesting and satisfying.”


Last, but not least, Nicole Harris walked through our doors in August, and dove head first into her role as office manager and lead on multiple complex tasks for our office move. Now that we’re settled in, she has taken over responsibilities in operations, business process development, team building, event planning, and essentially anything we throw at her. A self-described  Fanilow, we’re confidentially getting a little nervous about her threats of a team karaoke night.

“As the newest member of the Kinzer team, I have the opportunity to work with some pretty innovative professionals doing big deals in a small business setting. I get to wear many hats and every day there is something exciting going on in the office.”


Our offices will be closed in observance of the holiday on Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th. Wishing  you and your loved ones a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
