TMT Finance Gets a Fresh Take from Partner Michael Quinn

Since 2010, there have been over 200 deals in the UCaaS space in Europe and the United States. TMT Finance tapped into the expertise of Q Advisors partner Michael Quinn, who has more than 25 years of international operations and investment banking experience in the telecommunications industry. Quinn is predicting Europe will experience significant consolidation over the next 36 months in the UCaaS and MSP spaces.

Quinn adds hyperscalers will be next to enter the field.

 “Hyperscalers, such as Amazon, are expected to start buying MSPs in Europe, as well as in the US. These companies are providing services that the hyperscalers don’t possess; deals like Vonage’s acquisition of NewVoiceMedia will be a common occurrence. Ultimately, hyperscalers will be looking to put more tools in their toolboxes,” he says.

While the firm has advised clients in several European transactions already, Q Advisors’ new Amsterdam office puts the firm in the center of the market action. As a leading  investment bank serving the telecom, media and technology sectors, Q Advisors provides clients an  extensive global reach with a personal touch.

“Dealmaking is not solely about the money, but more of whose wallet it is coming from,” says Quinn. “Essentially, price is important, of course, but it’s also about fit and culture: that’s what we look at most for our clients at Q Advisors.”
