"Don is an industry-recognized leader with a successful 30-year career in capital markets, including eight years' direct experience as a public-company CEO and director.

"We are privileged to have someone of Don's caliber join our team and are looking forward to utilizing his talents."

"I am excited to join the Three Part Advisors' team. The rapidly-growing firm has built an excellent reputation as a trusted advisor to corporate executives, and consistently demonstrates success in generating real economic value for clients and their shareholders. In addition, through its independent IDEAS Investor Conferences, independent research network, and highly-selective investor relations practice, the team has a unique IDEAS generation platform that should only continue to build on an already impressive track record," said Don Hultgren, President of Three Part Advisors, LLC. "With the dislocation of the traditional investment research model and the proliferation of high-speed trading, it is more and more difficult for many small- and mid-sized public companies, particularly those with limited trading volume, to garner adequate Wall Street sponsorship and attention from investors. As a result, many of these companies are often underpriced relative to their ability to generate returns for shareholders. This new equity market environment has created an opportunity for our independent model to help quality public companies navigate Wall Street and gain exposure to the RIGHT shareholders and key influencers. Likewise, we will continue to introduce professional investors to these companies, so they may benefit from these marketplace opportunities."
