Hous­ton, May 10, 2022 – Chi­ron Finan­cial LLC (“Chi­ron”) is pleased to announce that its direc­tor, Melis­sa Hop­per, has won Glob­al M&A Network’s Top Women Deal­mak­ers award. Pub­lished annu­al­ly, the recog­ni­tion hon­ors the most accom­plished women deal­mak­ers from the US trans­ac­tion­al communities. 

Melissa’s exper­tise and indus­try knowl­edge stands on its own and has helped Chi­ron close some of our most sig­nif­i­cant deals in the past two years,” said Jay Kra­soff, founder, Chi­ron. She’s made a name for her­self not only in the Hous­ton busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty but also nation­al­ly, and I have no doubt that her finan­cial knowhow will con­tin­ue to bring max­i­mum val­ue for our clients.”

Ms. Hop­per has served as CFO at mul­ti­ple com­pa­nies and has expe­ri­ence in equi­ty and debt recap­i­tal­iza­tions, merg­ers and acqui­si­tions and restruc­tur­ing. She was con­sid­ered for the award specif­i­cal­ly for her work relat­ed to Chiron’s OSFi and Ilu­mi­nar deals, with val­ues of $100M and $60M, respec­tive­ly. She coor­di­nat­ed efforts on the sell side for Ilu­mi­nar, which had an extreme­ly short deal cycle, and was intri­cate­ly involved with the restruc­tur­ing and refi­nanc­ing plans for the OSFi deal.
