Management Consulting Firm, Avant Advisory Group, Adds New Office to Support Santa Barbara County Clients

Avant Advisory Group (, a premier management consulting firm with offices in Los Angeles and Newport Beach, California, has now added a Santa Barbara location. Jim Davidson, Managing Director of Avant Advisory, explained, “We now provide easier access and local expertise to clients in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties with this additional presence of the firm. Previously, companies and their professionals would need to travel to downtown Los Angeles for the type of specialty services the firm provides to its corporate, professional business, and capital provider clients.

Avant Advisory Group, a turnaround, restructuring, and bankruptcy management specialty firm, also provides strategic, operational, and financial expertise along with CFO and C-Suite services to its clients. “Those companies that cannot afford the cost of a full time, permanent executive may now avail themselves of the firm’s resources at much lower cost. Similarly, those firms needing merger and acquisition and capital transaction advisory services, or forensics support, also have access to these areas of expertise, “Jim Davidson added.

Martin McDermut CPA, an Avant Managing Director, will assume responsibility for leading the firm’s practice and delivering its services to clients in the Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. McDermut is a former Big Four accounting firm partner, CFO, and executive of prominent public and private companies in the area. Please refer to to learn more about McDermut.
