Capital Alliance advises in Sequent spinoff

COLUMBUS, OH, Sept. 19, 2017 – Capital Alliance Corp. advised in the recent spinoff of a portion of Sequent Inc. to a member of its management team.

Sequent’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sequent HR Consulting, was sold to Change 4 Growth, a new company founded by Beth Thomas, who served as managing director and executive vice president of Sequent HR Consulting until the spinoff.

Dallas-based Capital Alliance Corp. (, a mid-market investment bank, provided consultancy services to Sequent as part of the transaction.

Sequent HR Consulting was established in 2004 to enhance leadership effectiveness and improve employee engagement with large clients outside the PEO industry target demographic. “This was a natural extension of Sequent Inc.’s HR outsourcing business, which is geared toward small and mid-sized businesses. The consulting division grew nicely over the past 10 years by offering a full suite of strategic organizational development services,” said William F. Hutter, Sequent CEO.

“The creation of Sequent HR Consulting is just the latest example of how we have allowed our employees to benefit from a division that has achieved enough growth and success that it can now stand on its own,” Hutter said.

Brad Buttermore, managing partner of Capital Alliance, said the spinoff made good sense for Sequent and acquiring company, Change 4 Growth. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the shareholders of Sequent Inc., to monetize this valuable asset,” he said.
