Richard Donatuti joins Corporate Fuel
Rich joins Corporate Fuel after a 43 year career at JP Morgan Chase, having started his career with the Chemical Bank in 1974. After a brief stint in the retail banking department, Rich transitioned to Chemical’s middle market banking group in 1981. As a commercial banker, Rich nurtured a group of the bank’s business relationships and called on prospects in the Bronx and lower Westchester County. This territory was populated with many light manufacturers, meat and fresh food wholesalers, and distributors of all sorts - small companies with large dreams.
Rich’s natural business instincts, his warmth, and his ability to connect with business owners allowed him to excel. He succeeded by earning the respect of the business owners through his hard work and insights and developed friendships along the way. Having been promoted to Team Leader in 1984, Rich led a team of seven bankers and associates to be one of the most productive at the bank, while covering a highly competitive banking market.
In 2006, Rich was promoted to Senior Vice President and given responsibilities for managing the marketing and business development for the Northeast Region. In this role, Rich covered the Bronx, Hudson Valley, Upstate New York and New England territories.
Over his career, Rich has assisted hundreds of business owners with financings of all types and sizes. And, using his well-honed business experience, he has offered strategic and personal advice to entrepreneurs and their families.
At Corporate Fuel, Rich will provide financial advisory services as it relates to business growth and valuation, capital raising and M&A.
Rich can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at Corporate Fuel at (646)-572-0431.

The post-recession trend of strategic and private equity sponsored activity continues at a strong pace for large and small deals alike, as shown in the chart below. If currently announced deals close this year, M&A activity will again cross the $2 trillion threshold in 2019 for the fifth consecutive year. While total dollar volume is skewed by a number of mega mergers, such as United Technologies $90 billion acquisition of Raytheon, the median size of all transactions over the past 5 years is less than $100 million, an important consideration for middle market companies as they assess M&A market conditions for their business.
