Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (“BGL”) announced Scott Berlin (Cleveland), Jim Miller (Cleveland) and David Sulaski (Chicago) have been promoted to Managing Directors.
This is Scott Berlin’s fifth promotion since joining the firm in 1997. He has played an integral role in marketing the firm’s capabilities throughout the U.S. Scott focuses on mergers & acquisitions, financings and heads BGL’s metals group.
Jim Miller also joined the firm in 1997. Specializing in both mergers & acquisitions and private placements, Jim has focused primarily on the industrial/electrical distribution market, working with seven of the top ten firms in the industry on sell-side or restructuring transactions. He also has deep experience in the food and beverage sector.
David Sulaski is a relative newcomer to BGL. Only with the firm for two years, he has made significant contributions heading up the firm’s private equity and global business development initiatives.

Prior to joining BGL, David was a new business development specialist with William Blair & Company’s Corporate Finance group.
“We could not be more excited about promoting Scott, Jim, and David to Managing Director. BGL has been growing at a rate of 20 percent for each of the last five years.
