SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Amplify Car Wash Advisors, a mergers and acquisitions and capital advisory firm, announced the addition of former chief executive officer and president of DRB Systems, Dan Pittman, to the team in the role of senior advisor. While at DRB Systems, Pittman was responsible for overseeing the company’s operations, driving continuous process improvement, and developing and executing on the company’s strategic growth plans, including facilitating its acquisition by Vontier Corporation for approximately $965 million.
