AEG announces the addition of Barry Best to help lead the formation of AEG Capital


AEG announces the addition of Barry Best, Managing Director, who is leading the formation of AEG Capital LLC. Barry recently joined the firm from Sagent Advisors, a New York-based, boutique investment bank, where he founded and led the private capital markets group. His focus was on providing corporate finance solutions to middle market companies across a broad range of industries. 

Prior to that, Barry was part of the private placement team at what became Citigroup, where he advised private and public companies on private placements of mezzanine debt and equity as well as divestitures, initial public offerings, high yield offerings, syndicated institutional loans and asset-based financings. Barry began his career on Wall Street at Salomon Brothers Inc in the mergers and acquisitions group, focusing on leverage buyouts.  

“We are delighted to have Barry join us,” commented Principal Craig Dean. “Capital raising has become more and more important to our clients and once AEG Capital is formally up and running, this will be a great compliment to AEG’s financial and restructuring activities.”

Barry has completed transactions for widely held public companies including Level 3 Communications Inc. and The Scotts Company; family-owned companies, such as Solo Cup Company; entrepreneur founded and run companies including Brightstar Corporation and RentWay Corporation; and for private equity backed firms including Graham Packaging Company and Delco Remy Corporation.
