David C. Branch





A Mergers and Acquisitions Expert living in Palm Beach, Florida, David C. Branch is the Founder of Viper Equity Partners.

Viper Equity Partners is America’s leading transition consultation firm for the medical industry, working with professionals in multiple areas through established relationships with Banks, Lawyers, Finance Partners, Equity Firms, and Analysts. 

David C. Branch opened Viper Equity Partners in 2009 and has been offering a wide array of services ever since. At Viper Equity Partners, the 44-person team works diligently to provide clients with the services they need, including full M&A advisory services and full accounting and financial support. The team also manages the entire process of forming partnerships and completing acquisitions of companies. 

At Viper Equity Partners, David C. Branch brought together 25 years of experience that he’d accumulated in all areas of the financial industry and create a company where he can use that experience to help other people by identifying problems and developing a solution. Across his career, David has learned that one of the most significant issues that professionals experience across every industry is communication. When people from different industries come together as experts in their respective fields, it can be challenging to communicate the work each is doing to the other effectively. 

Additionally, David C. Branch specializes in consolidation, an area in which he gained experience while working in hospitality, and then by helping sell smaller tech companies to larger corporations like Verizon and AT&T. He learned that consolidation is how people make money in their industries, and so he became a specialist in helping people with the consolidation of their businesses. Through Viper Equity Partners, David works primarily with professionals and businesses in the medical field, particularly in the areas of dentistry, dermatology, and plastic surgery – all industries that are perfect for consolidation and adaptability. 

Looking to the future, David C. Branch hopes that the medical community consolidation process only grows more accepted and mainstream. Through consolidation, these medical practices can offer better pricing, better marketing, better IT, better benefits for their employees, and a better overall environment for their patients. David also hopes to see the private equity side of things move more quickly and efficiently for the benefit of the doctors and patients alike. Experts in the industry are working on developing change daily to help accelerate these processes and have already cut down on time, a trend David hopes to continue.
