About Us

Over 30 Years of Experience

SteelTree Partners was founded for the sole purpose of advising communications tower owners on the disposition of assets to all qualified buyers. We firmly believe that the competitive auction process is truly the only clear path to realize maximum value in the open market. We bring over 30 years of experience to bear in every transaction and work strictly with the client’s best interests in mind.

SteelTree Partners offers a full complement of M&A services including investment banking and legal resources through trusted providers. We fully serve the needs of our clients whether they desire to divest or grow. Our “more for less” approach affords the client full exposure to all active purchasers but most importantly a crucial understanding of what the client deserves and the proven ability to facilitate a transaction at the highest values and best terms. Our clients receive sound advice and guidance throughout the entire process through closing and funding. SteelTree strives to be the client’s greatest ally when value, service and success are paramount.
