Jennifer Chasson leads Springbank Capital Corp., which works side by side with Zeifmans LLP on mergers and acquisitions, valuation and corporate finance assignments. Working with clients as an advisor, underwriter and buyer for 19 years, closing more than 80 transactions, Jennifer brings keen insight into all three seats at the Corporate Finance table. With every merger, acquisition, divestiture, and debt or equity raise, she works with passion to help family-owned and entrepreneurial businesses make the next step in their evolution.
Between 2010 to 2015, for example, some notable deals Jennifer completed are the sale of El-En Packaging and its sister company, Haremar Plastic Manufacturing, to Inteplast Group; the sale of growth equity in Planet Paper Box to HSBC Capital; The Big Apple to John Vince Foods; and the Marcy’s brand to Ace Bakery, a Weston Foods Company.
Closing deals like these is what drives Jennifer. She honed her Corporate Finance skills advising on transactions at Coopers & Lybrand and BDO; sourcing, structuring and underwriting debt and equity at Roynat Capital; conducting corporate acquisitions at Counsel Corp.; and managing her own advisory practice, Chasson Financial Inc.
Jennifer’s passion and energy go beyond her Corporate Finance work at Springbank. She is a member of CPA Canada and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators; former treasurer of Women Entrepreneurs of Canada; former board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada; and fundraiser for Shaare Zedek Medical Centre, a hospital in Jerusalem, and Zareinu Educational Centre, a school and treatment centre in Toronto for children with physical and developmental challenges.
