July 14, 2023

The Clendenin Consulting Group (TCCG) and Anthony AdvisorsThe Clendenin Consulting Group (TCCG) and Anthony Advisors officially announce the formation of a strategic partnership between the two mergers and acquisitions experts and veteran industry consultants.

Per the news release, the alliance “has been formed to increase the bandwidth of both companies and to combine the 72 years of experience and involvement in over 100 transactions successfully representing owners on the sell-side in the residential, commercial and consumer services businesses.”

The two companies and respective CEOs have already successfully completed several transactions together in 2022 and 2023 in addition to the mergers and acquisitions work they each do independently.

In May 2023, the combined companies, known as TCAP, successfully represented and advised Tony Gleason, owner of Gleason Johndrow Landscape. The buyer was Yellowstone.

TCCG principal Greg Clendenin is a graduate of Liberty University. He also is a masters of business administration graduate with honors from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla.

He is a past board member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), and received its National Leadership Award in 2003. He also is past chairman of the NPMA’s Quality Pro certification program. Clendenin has been experienced on both sides of the table in mergers and acquisitions since 2005. He built Middleton Lawn and Pest Control into the 14th largest company in the industry before selling it in 2005 and then, as CEO, began to add acquisitions that same year post-sale. He started The Clendenin Consulting Group in 2018 focusing mainly on mergers and acquisitions, but also assisting owners to achieve exponential growth and profit improvement on a sustainable basis.

Graham Anthony obtained his masters of business administration from The Darden School and his bachelor of arts from The College of Arts & Sciences, both at the University of Virginia. Before business school, Anthony built and successfully sold two businesses, including a manufacturing business and a newspaper.

Anthony began his career at Bankers Trust (now Deutsche Bank), completing more than $5 billion of mergers and acquisitions transactions for clients.

Per the news release, Anthony “understands the home and business services industries from both dozens of transactions and the operating perspective,” having served as acting CFO of Arrow Environmental Service, where he supported operations and growth and oversaw the acquisition of several dozen pest, termite and lawncare firms. The Tampa, Fla.-based firm was eventually acquired by Rentokil in 2021.

Currently, Anthony serves as an investor in and a board member of several firms, and has completed acquisitions outside of the home and facilities services industries.
