Wes McDonough has over 20 years of experience in M&A, corporate finance, and entrepreneurship. Previous to CGK, Wes held numerous positions, including accounting, payroll, billing, project management, and IT/Application Support at a privately-held, global talent solutions firm based in Tennessee. Wes’s entrepreneurial spirit started at a young age and originated in music, where he studied, composed, and performed from his earliest days. Developing this talent into a successful music career, he found himself touring the East Coast, self-releasing an album that sold 5,000+ units and attracting major record label attention in the 10 years during and following college. In doing so, he learned valuable business principles by managing, booking, promoting, and marketing himself and his band. Now, as a 10+ year resident of Nashville, Wes still follows his passion for music, building his song catalog by collaborating with other artists/writers and playing writer’s nights around the ‘Music City’. Wes has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Vocal Performance from Towson University. As valedictorian of his high school senior class, Wes attended Towson on the Maryland Presidential Scholarship. Wes is an M&A Advisor for CGK’s Nashville branch.
