JSI Capital Advisors began its journey back in 1962 when John Staurulakis, the former director of settlements for the United States Independent Telephone Association, founded John Staurulakis, Inc. (JSI). Thirty years later, in 1992, JSI Financial Services was formed as a division of JSI to specifically address the growing strategic, financial and transactional needs of JSI's traditional client base - family and cooperatively owned rural incumbent local exchange carriers. In 1998, JSI Financial Services changed its name to JSI Capital Advisors and realigned its focus toward providing transaction advisory, valuation and industry research services to participants in the rapidly changing rural and independent communications provider industry.
JSI Capital Advisors was formally spun off as a separate and independent entity in 1999 and opened its headquarters in Manchester, New Hampshire. Today, JSI Capital Advisors is a specialized professional services firm meeting the challenges of the fast-paced telecommunications environment and providing services to all segments within the industry.
Our mission is to develop, foster and sustain beneficial long-term client relationships through the provision of comprehensive, high-quality transaction and valuation advisory services. With a long history of serving the financial advisory needs of the rural and independent communications provider industry, and a strong commitment to monitoring, evaluating and assessing industry trends and developments, we strive to distinguish ourselves by our industry expertise, our ability to provide a full complement of industry-specific business, regulatory, transactional and regulatory services, and our extensive network of industry financial and business relationships.
