Our Story

Who we are.

Accordion is a private equity-focused financial and technology consulting firm. Rooted in a heritage of serving the office of the CFO, Accordion works at the intersection of sponsors and management teams to maximize value. The firm’s services span the entire CFO function – including operational and technical accounting, strategic financial planning and analysis, CFO-related technology, transaction execution, public company readiness, interim leadership, and following its 2021 acquisition of Mackinac Partners, now include turnaround and restructuring solutions for the broader private capital markets. Across all of Accordion’s services, clients are supported by deep expertise in CFO-specific technology and finance-led transformations. Accordion is headquartered in New York with ten offices in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and South Florida.

What Makes Us Tick?

Accordion's Core Values

Challenge convention.

We take risks, make bold decisions, and bring a fresh way of thinking to our work.

Pictured here: An unconventional (somewhat risky) team happy hour spent throwing axes together. Bold choice for a corporate outing? Sure. But it’s indicative of the bold and unexpected approach we bring to our clients’ challenges. (No Accordionites were harmed in the making of this photo.)

Think like an owner.

We care deeply, act with agility, and always go the extra mile.

Pictured here: “Each and every one of you has a role to play in Accordion’s growth story. I’m counting on you to make your mark on this firm’s future.” These words from Nick’s speech (delivered at our 2019 Company Offsite) are more than a rallying cry; we’re constantly empowered to translate them into action.

Partner with authenticity.

We are human, expect transparency, and appreciate humility.

Pictured here: At Accordion, we strive to create a “better way to work in finance” and to us, that means taking our work seriously, but not ourselves. Laughter is encouraged, which makes us genuinely enjoy being around one another. 

Coach and be coached.

We lead when we can, teach what we know, and learn what we don’t.

Pictured here: What do forearm planks and complex financial models have in common? They both require the utmost practice and precision, and they’re both coached (and mastered) at Accordion. 

Pivot and persevere.

We defy unnecessary structure, figure things out on the fly, and refuse to settle.

Pictured here: A group of Accordionites (literally) pivoted and persevered to earn the coveted “Accordion Offsite Trophy” in 2018. It’s this winning mindset that makes us true champions for our clients – refusing to settle for anything less than A+ quality work.

Analytical Athletes.

At Accordion, we think of ourselves as analytical athletes. (And no, it's not because we failed in gym class but excelled in math class) it's because we perform at the top of our game. Like athletes, we turn thousands of hours of practice into success and innovation. Through passion, drive, and a perfectionist attitude, we're rewriting the private equity playbook – together.
