Mr. Bluth joins Intrepid with more than 15 years of healthcare finance experience, having assisted clients in mandates including buy-side and sell-side M&A, capital raising and management consulting.

He has advised companies in various healthcare sectors, including: hospitals, physician groups, dental services, home health, hospice, behavioral health, revenue cycle management, healthcare IT, medical devices, and pharmaceuticals.
“Healthcare is one of the largest and most dynamic sectors of the economy, with mergers and acquisitions constantly transforming the landscape,” said Ed Bagdasarian, CEO and Managing Director of Intrepid. “We are thrilled to have Jonathan lead our efforts in building a dedicated healthcare advisory group, expanding our existing track record in this industry. The formation of the Healthcare Group builds on our strategy to deliver dedicated investment banking expertise in key sectors of the economy where we bring depth of experience.”
