John Allen

Three senior executives at McLean, Virginia-based Bluestone Capital Partners will join Houlihan Lokey’s (NYSE: HLI) aerospace, defense and government services group as managing directors after the Los Angeles, California-based investment bank merged ADG with Bluestone’s mergers and acquisitions advisory practice.

John Allen, Bluestone co-founder and CEO; Susan Gabay, Bluestone co-founder and managing director; and Greg Van Beuren, partner and managing director; will oversee Houlihan’s clients in the government services sector, Houlihan Lokey said Monday.

Susan Gabay

Allen is a 20-year investment banking veteran who previously served as co-owner of Windsor Group prior to its acquisition by BB&T Corp. in 2015.

He is the founder of Windsor Capital Partners Fund I and former president of Quarterdeck Investment Partners.

Gabay previously worked at BB&T Capital Markets | Windsor Group for nearly a decade before she co-founded Bluestone with Allen.

Greg Van Beuren

The nearly two-decade investment banking professional also worked at Goldman Sachs Group.

Van Beuren previously worked at BB&T Capital Markets as a managing director for 13 years and as a strategy consultant at Dove Consulting, now known as Hitachi Consulting.

Allen, Gabay and Van Beuren have offered consulting support in at least 150 transactions across defense, government services and aerospace sectors that include Belcan’s acquisition of The Kemtah Group and MacAulay-Brown’s purchase of Enlighten IT Consulting in January.

Garrett Asta, a vice president at Bluestone, and a group of analysts will also join Houlihan’s ADG unit.
