Corporate Development Associates Adds Another Former Print Distributor Principal to Roster
Corporate Development Associates (CDA), Scottsdale, Ariz., has added former print industry owner Tom James to its deal-making team. James is the former owner of Goffstown, New Hampshire-based NTI Data Products Inc., a specialty label distributor that was acquired by Peak-Ryzex in August 2016.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of Tom as a label specialist to our deal-making team,” said Jim Anderson, president of CDA. “Together, we felt that the label segment of the printing industry was not currently being properly served by M&A advisory firms. I fully expect that in short order Tom will be a great dealmaker and bring some much-needed label expertise to CDA. It has been my experience that business owners in the printing industry like working with M&A consultants that understand their business, and Tom certainly knows the label industry.”
"I am pleased to enter into this new relationship with CDA as Jim is a veteran and respected dealmaker, who has a track record of success in the printing industry," said James. "Jim not only has the experience and talent, but many long-standing personal relationships with print industry principals. My focus will be the label segment of our industry, which will include both distributors like my former NTI Data Products, as well as manufacturers. My affiliation with CDA should give my new deal-making future in the label segment a great kick-start."
