Heritage Capital Group is pleased to announce that Bill Prescott has joined the firm as a principal. Prior to joining Heritage, Bill was the Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Stadium Operations for the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise. As a direct report to the CEO of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Prescott provided financial and operational leadership to the executive team for 17 seasons since its inception in 1996. Prior to working with the Jaguars, Bill was Treasurer of Liz Claiborne Footwear.
“Bill was a trusted advisor of mine for more than 25 years,” said Wayne Weaver, former owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Liz Claiborne Footwear. “He has passion and commitment, as well as the ability to think outside of the box — truly a well-rounded executive and advisor.”
Bill has had many notable accomplishments during his career, most recently, leading the negotiation and due diligence for the sale of the Jacksonville Jaguars to its new owner, Mr. Shad Kahn. As part of the change in ownership he initiated a rebranding of the Jaguars for the 2013 season, and secured the Jaguars participation in the International Game Series for four years starting with the 2013 season.
Established in 1977, Heritage Capital Group is a leading independent investment banking and advisory firm for mergers and acquisitions, sales and divestitures, corporate restructurings, and enhanced business performance and value development.
