Baseline data on the US tower market and a view on Europe
Former Macquarie tower guru now runs boutique European advisory firm and launches website quantifying US tower market
TowerXchange are frequently asked for data on the US tower market, which our analyst team don’t yet cover. So we were delighted when Marc Perusat, Managing Partner of corporate finance advisory firm Xpand Capital, asked if we wanted to share some insights he’d learned about the US market in the creation of www.towerlocation.com – a unique database of cell phone and broadcast towers in the US as registered by the FCC, FAA and individual tower operators.
TowerXchange: What’s your background Marc, and what inspired you to compile a comprehensive database of US cell sites?
Marc Perusat, Managing Partner, Xpand Capital:
For the last 20 years I’ve been in TMT investment banking at Morgan Stanley and Citigroup, and in the private equity / infrastructure side with Macquarie.
