“Recently I made the decision to sell my business in order to make family matters a top priority. We confidentially engaged the firm of Ascend Capital Group. Kathryn Scarmato, its Principal and Managing Partner, performed a diligent search for the perfect buyer. We found that in Cokeva, Inc. Cokeva was a perfect match on so many levels; its product offering, its reputation combined with its strong balance sheet and its desire to work closely with our top clients and take our company to the next level, made the transaction with minimal effort. If you are considering the sale of your company, I would strongly encourage you to consider Kathryn and her team at ACG.”
— Jerome P. Lange, Presiden, Priority One Parts Inc., dba Mesa Systems

“I’ve known and worked with Kathryn Scarmato for over 15 years. Two things stand out. First is her acute business acumen and the breadth and depth of her experience and expertise, her high profile in her profession, her wide range of contacts and speaking engagements as an expert in her field, and the quality of the people with whom she chooses to engage. Second is her selfless giving in non-profit volunteer activities that are her passion.”
