Bennett Thrasher has announced the appointment of Dane Harris as its new regional transaction advisory services market leader in Texas.
Harris will be based in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area, with a view to “expand the firm’s transaction advisory services (TAS) practice in Texas and surrounding geographies”.
He joins from Baker Tilly, having previously also worked for KMPG.
Harris said: “At its core, Bennett Thrasher is focused on high-touch service and successful outcomes for its clients. I’m excited about building trust within the deal community and strengthening our position in this market with clients who understand that we are committed to their success.
“We will spend the time and resources necessary to deliver on what we promise.”
Jeff Eischeid, managing partner at Bennett Thrasher, said: “The innovation and industrial market growth throughout Dallas-Ft Worth is astounding.
“The Texas market is strong, and this market is a natural next step for us to continue our organic expansion.”
Vijay Vaswani, partner and TAS practice leader at Bennett Thrasher, added: “M&A activity has been surging across the U.S. and Texas is no different in that regard.
“This is the first step in the firm’s national expansion within the transaction advisory services practice. We have experienced exceptional growth in this service line and intend to replicate the success we have had in Atlanta and the southeast by putting boots on the ground in Dallas and several other key markets.”
