Following two decades of senior executive experience with top tier global corporations, Stewart Nazzaro founded Aldebaran Partners in 1997 to provide innovative expansion initiatives and operational transformations for his corporate, family office and not-for-profit clientele. Mr. Nazzaro draws upon a rich history of corporate relationships and a deep bench of consultant talent to provide clients with dynamic solutions to effect meaningful change. With each new project, Mr. Nazzaro partners with the executive management to define a firm’s key strengths and challenges while developing and implementing practical solutions that reflect unique and often complex organizational dynamics.
Although initially a telecommunications, media and private networking specialist, Mr. Nazzaro’s breadth of work has expanded over the past decade to include renewable energy, cybersecurity and fin-tech, agriculture and ag-tech, and transportation and logistics – all with an overlay of organizational change management. Additionally, because of the capital-intensive and high-tech nature of these specialty areas, Mr. Nazzaro has amassed a deep expertise in structuring project and real estate finance and, likewise, developing the integrated financial modeling required for clients to attract those sources of financing.
Stewart earned his Bachelor of Science from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications of Syracuse University. After graduating, Stewart forged a successful career managing radio and cable television operations, before entering the global M&A practice of Communications Equity Associates’ (CEA), where he crafted the acquisitions and managed subsequent operational integrations of global telecommunications and media giants, including Sky Television, Time Warner, TCI, the Asian Business News Network and Bell Atlantic and Pearson, to name a few.
