Michael Garcia leads the health and beauty group at Deloitte Corporate Finance (DCF). At DCF, Garcia focuses first and foremost on forming long lasting and meaningful relationships with entrepreneurs and executives, being there as a sounding board, connector, and advocate. While Garcia’s ultimate business is investment banking, where he advises companies when raising capital or selling to a private equity group, his number one goal is forming relationships. To that end, Garcia invests a significant amount of time with companies well ahead of any transaction. He provides value during this period by giving business advice, making connections, and hosting a variety of fun but productive events. Deloitte as a whole is a powerhouse in the beauty arena – not only in the U.S., but also in Europe, Asia, and around the globe.
