What Our Members Are Saying

“I thought that the Opus Connect team did an excellent job of organizing and executing the virtual Deal Connect for Texas investment banks. The other participants I spoke to also had very positive things to say. Most of us would not have thought four months ago that such high-quality conversations could be had online. Congratulations to Opus Connect for an effective pivot to virtual meetings in this new environment.”

Jim Briggs, Statesman Business AdvisorsManaging Director

“Thank you to the Opus team. I know a lot of work went into putting the Houston Deal Connect together and I thought it was the best event, in personal or virtual, that I have been part of. I know there is still a learning curve for everyone involved, but I found it most productive. Yes, we all are living in a strange new world. Change is coming at us at a lighting pace. Opus is up to the challenge. I don’t see us going back. A job well done.”

Benjamin J. Bleadon, Bleadon & Assoc., Ltd.President

“The Virtual Deal Connect that I attended through Opus Connect last month was very worthwhile in forging new relationships with capital providers through time efficient one on one meetings. The Opus team also put together an interesting panel discussion and breakout session. Opus continues to put together a high quality group of participants for all of its programs.”

Marc Leizman, Grenway CapitalPresident

“If you’re serious about being involved in M&A, then you need to be part of Opus Connect.”

JR Matthews, Tregaron Capital CompanyManaging Director

“I participated in the May 14, 2020, Minneapolis virtual event hosted by Opus Connect. I give this experience a 5 star rating. I found the setup to be efficient and a great method to meet, interact, share information and begin building relationships. In my opinion, this method is in many ways superior to live events and I plan to continue attending them as my schedule permits.”

Fred Sussman, Aaron CapitalManaging Director
