Jeff Chung is the founder and Managing Director of Vista Advisory Group. He has over 10 years of investment banking and related experience with extensive experience on both the buy and sell-side of a transaction. His motivation for starting his own advisory firm was to better service the client by offering customized and flexible solutions that are not traditionally available with an investment banking institution.
He is an active member of industry associations, publishes numerous editorials and research reports, and has built a large network of both strategic and financial buyers in several industries.
Prior to joining Vista Advisory Group, Mr. Chung was the Vice President and head of the Transportation and Logistics Group at USBX Advisory Services. His practice included the sale of privately held logistics businesses, consulting for public companies and performed buy-side advisory services for European based multinationals. During his previous employment from a merchant banking firm specializing in industry consolidation opportunities, Mr. Chung analyzed and initiated several acquisitions for a leveraged build-up of fabricated metal component manufacturers. He worked closely with Fortune 500 executives to developed consolidation strategies in a wide range of industries including third party logistics, precision machining, specialty chemicals, telecommunications, building products, staffing services, and energy services.
Mr. Chung owned and sold a clothing retailer and export company. Previously, he was a financial consultant with Smith Barney.
Mr. Chung received his B.A. from the California State University, Fullerton and his M.B.A. from the Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California.
