Welcome To Tidewater

The Tidewater Group, Inc. is a small, private, investment banking firm which specializes in representing a variety of clients in all segments of the food industry. Tidewater was founded in 1995 by William C. H. (Bill) Zimmerman to help clients with mergers and acquisitions in the middle-market segment of the food industry. At the urging of several clients, Tidewater expanded the scope of the firm's consulting to include assistance with strategic and financial planning, corporate valuations and a variety of other client needs. Tidewater nurtures an extensive list of solid relationships with Fortune 500-sized companies, many of which date back to Bill's tenure with PHH Group and McCormick & Co. His experience in handling acquisitions, divestitures, financing and strategic planning on four continents is put to good use in assisting Tidewater’s current clients. Tidewater is proud to have built a network of former associates, business contacts and association members that stay in touch routinely. When you choose the Tidewater Group, you're not just choosing an investment banking firm. You're forging a relationship with a knowledgeable ally in the food industry.
