Matt Young

Matt founded CriticalPoint in 2012, recognizing a need within lower-middle market companies for corporate development support, both at the advisory and transactional levels. He founded the firm with the goal of creating lasting partnerships with firms in need of investment assistance including deal sourcing, buy-side support, sell-side support, and advisory or board participation in order to increase profitability.


Prior to joining CriticalPoint, Matt spent over a decade as Principal at Platinum Equity, executing transactions across a wide variety of industries, and holding board positions with numerous portfolio companies. During his tenure, Matt also supported Platinum’s global expansion initiatives by opening a satellite office in Paris where he spent three years.


Previously, Matt worked in the Technology Investment Banking Group at Bear Stearns & Co. and acted as a Contracting Officer for the United States Air Force where he negotiated the acquisition of multi-billion dollar military satellites.


Matt received a Bachelor of Science in Management from the United States Air Force Academy and a Master’s of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from the University of Southern California. He is a Registered Representative of CriticalPoint Partners, LLC and holds FINRA series 7, 24, & 63 licenses.
