CEO and Founder

Tom Marx is the CEO and founder of Marx Group Advisors (MGA), a mergers and acquisition specialist focused on providing M&A services to the Automotive and Heavy Duty aftermarkets.
Marx Group Advisors was formed in early 2007 with the mission of providing full service M&A support for middle-market enterprises. As boomers age and often do not have a succession plan in place, and as the economy drives consolidation and acquisition-for-growth trends, Tom saw the growing need and opportunity to provide consulting services as well as bringing buyers and sellers together.
Tom represents sellers and buyers of companies and provides consulting services that enable companies to improve their balance sheets before beginning the M&A process, as well as post-M&A integration. MGA also represents private equity firms when financing is a part of the transaction.
Tom brings a depth of marketing and business knowledge from 25 years experience in the Aftermarket, as well as from many other industries, including motor sports, technology, telecommunications, broadcast, real estate, financial services, and resort property management.
He continues as President and CEO of The Marx Group, a full-service marketing communications company that provides Business Development, Marketing Strategy and Marketing Communications services to the Automotive and Heavy Duty Aftermarket.

Tom co-authored Marketing Sucks! (And Sales, Too!), a book designed to mold the culture of an enterprise toward improved internal and external communications, resulting in more efficient and effective collaboration between Sales, Marketing, Executive and other teams, while improving their internal and external communications.
