We are very grateful to the DC Advisory team which was instrumental to facilitating this transaction. The DCA team’s preparation, diligence, deep industry knowledge and integrity enabled us to expeditiously consummate our partnership with the Truckstop team,” said Will Griffith, partner at ICONIQ Capital.

“Dave Dolan, John Roediger, Eddie Nie and the DC Advisory team have been great long-term partners to us. They demonstrated their deep transportation and supply chain tech experience during our growth investment in 2016, and again during this process where they helped us find the right partner for our next stage of growth in ICONIQ Capital,” said Paris Cole, CEO of Truckstop.com.

“This is our third transaction in three years with the Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Tech team at DC Advisory,” said Phil Yates, founding partner at Bregal Sagemount. “They are a trusted partner with proven expertise in this segment.
