BGL Keeps Building Technology Team

Jason Myler joins the firm from Stifel where he was a managing director in its technology group

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) has added Jason Myler to its team as a managing director within the firm’s technology group.

Over his more than 25-year career, Mr. Myler has advised numerous vertical software clients in buy- and sell-side M&A, IPO, private capital raising, and debt capital markets transactions. Mr. Myler’s software expertise spans several sectors, including real estate, restaurant, retail, travel and hospitality, and field service management.

Vertical market software, also known as vertical-specific or industry-specific software, is designed to meet the specific needs and requirements of a particular industry or “vertical market.” Rather than being generic software that serves a broad range of industries, vertical market software is tailored to address the unique workflows, processes, regulations, and challenges of a specific industry niche.

BGL’s technology practice was established in September 2023, simultaneously with the hiring of Scott Mattson from William Blair, and Michael Magruder from Madison Park Group.

“We are excited to welcome Jason to our growing technology team. His decades of industry expertise and focus on client service perfectly complements BGL’s approach to advising leading growth companies,” said Mr. Mattson. “His extensive industry relationships and creative solutions to advising technology companies on a full range of advisory solutions further strengthens our technology practice.”

“I’m excited to join the growing BGL technology team,” said Mr. Myler, who is based in Boston. “I look forward to leveraging my expertise and network to help deliver collaborative solutions to clients across the firm’s industry coverage.”

Prior to joining BGL, Mr. Myler was a managing director at Stifel in its technology group focused on vertical market software. Previously, he served as managing director in the TMT investment banking group at Truist Securities, where he helped lead the firm’s East Coast software practice and co-headed vertical market software. Before his time at Truist, Mr. Myler held positions at several mid-market investment banks including Piper Jaffray, MHT MidSpan, Morgan Keegan, and BB&T. Mr. Myler has his undergraduate degree from Colby College and is a CFA charter holder.

Brown Gibbons Lang is a mid-market investment bank that specializes in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, capital markets, financial restructurings, valuations, and fairness opinions.

Over the past year, BGL has been actively expanding its coverage areas and senior banker headcount. In 2023, the firm expanded its capabilities in professional services; technology; digital infrastructure; aerospace, defense and government services; transportation and logistics; and capital markets.

BGL was founded in 1989 and has investment banking offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and New York City.
