About Us

Marcuson-Beck & Associates, LLC. is an Anchorage-based consulting firm that specializes in working with professional and financial services firms in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, succession planning and recruitment. Backed by nearly 30 years of experience, Marcuson-Beck & Associates, LLC “MBA” has a proven track record of delivering high-value, industry-specific Consulting Services


Mergers & Acquisitions

Connecting buyers with sellers and helping firm owners merge and consolidate. The success of any merger or acquisition effort is as much about the people and the culture involved as it is about the financials.  Research has shown that most mergers and/or acquisitions fail to achieve expected shareholder value because organizations do not put enough emphasis on people issues.

At Marcuson-Beck & Associates, we accelerate the long-term growth of our clients by helping them understand, measure and manage the impact of human capital costs on the risks and value of any business transaction.  To accomplish this goal, we focus activities in areas of critical value: due diligence, risk management, cultural integration, workforce planning, leadership, assessment and selection, technology integration and communication.
