Kevin Laidlaw Joins Lancaster Pollard’s Mergers and Acquisitions Group

COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lancaster Pollard has announced that Kevin Laidlaw, currently a vice
president with the firm, will be joining its mergers and acquisitions
(M&A) group. The transition of Laidlaw to the M&A group is an integral
aspect of the firm’s national efforts to expand its sell-side and
buy-side advisory services for seniors housing and care properties.

“We are thrilled to have Kevin as part of our team,” said Chad Elliott,
managing director of Lancaster Pollard’s M&A group. “For over eight
years, he has been an instrumental part of Lancaster Pollard’s success
and has developed a keen understanding of the factors that drive
valuation, such as key financial and operational metrics as well as the
regulatory and reimbursement environment.”

With over 27 years of experience as an advisor, investor, lender, buyer
and seller, Lancaster Pollard has a specialized understanding of local
and national markets, and relationships with a wide variety of strategic
and financial buyers and investors. Through its orchestrated M&A
process, the firm aims to provide sellers with access to qualified
buyers who can complete transactions with minimal disruption to
operations. For buyers, Lancaster Pollard offers a full range of debt
and equity funding options and valuation assessment.

“Our comprehensive understanding of the broad seniors care market
results in a consultative approach and ability to analyze a transaction
from both the seller’s and buyer’s perspective which, in turn, allows us
to deliver certainty of execution for our clients,” said Elliott.

Since joining the firm in 2007, Laidlaw has been responsible for all
details involved in the underwriting and closing processes for over 160
transactions totaling more than $1.2 billion. He graduated from Denison
University with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
