Synesis Advisors

Synesis Advisors specializes in the purchase and sale of privately held businesses that are underserved by traditional investment banks. From the owner-operator who is looking to cash in on their life’s work, to a strategic company looking for growth through acquisition, and everything that may fall in-between, we’ve seen it all. Transactions are hard. Deals have surprises. Transitions can be delicate. At Synesis Advisors we come to work every day because we love guiding our clients through these challenges. We have developed a high-touch client-centric methodology that capitalizes on the importance of transparency and communication. Maximizing value in each client engagement requires a multi-disciplinary expertise, organized processes, and a steady hand. Founders and principals, Randy Katz and Paul Kelley, bring just that, with over 40 combined years of financial, transactional and marketing experience. Their expertise is leveraged by a vast network of transaction specialists spanning, tax, legal, and financing who are all determined to deliver desired results.

As cofounder of Synesis Advisors, Paul brings considerable experience gained over the last decade working as a fiduciary for main street business owners and providing lower-middle market M&A services. Whether working with main street business owners, strategic buyers, or large private equity groups, Paul prides himself on understanding his clients’ needs, which enables him to bring them their desired solutions.

Paul’s diverse business background prior to becoming a business intermediary includes positions as general manager, partner, and president in industries as broad and diverse as hospitality, marketing, advertising, and market research. He was an integral part of building an advertising company that went from inception to being sold for $11.5 million in only six years. That was followed by the success of a second advertising company that he individually owned, built, and sold within four years. These experiences of sitting on the other side of the tables offer a unique perspective, empathy, and understanding of the challenges his clients face.

Paul is a member of the California Association of Business Brokers (CABB), the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), and sits on a non-profit board SEED (Supporting Early Childhood Education & Development).

Paul has called San Francisco home since 1988, where he lives with his wife and young daughter. In his spare time, he enjoys tennis, surfing, skiing, and traveling with his family.
