Audrius Sankalas

Having overseen M&As and corporate financing across Lithuania, the Baltic States and Scandinavia, Audrius extends CapEQ’s ability to represent any SME or lower mid-market client across Europe and beyond.

A true renaissance man, Audrius studied physics, robotics and business administration at various universities; speaks Russian, Polish, Lithuanian and English; and has run a large metal trade company, a paper merchant, own import-export agency and consultancy business. He has been active in start-ups across broadband, online fashion and smoothies – and advised boards across manufacturing, travel, hospitality and pharma. He’s even produced a TV series. All this experience makes him a superb salesperson, strategist and negotiator within M&A.

Since joining the industry in 2011 he has run projects in electronics retailing; shipbuilding and installation services; fertilizer trade; cable TV and telecoms; electronics manufacturing and apparel manufacturing; with landmark deals in white goods/consumer electronics and machinery manufacturing. Constantly proactive and always persistent, Audrius is the type of problem-solver who goes far beyond his remit. Despite a strange preference for basketball over rugby, he’s highly valued within CapEQ: this will continue for as long as he keeps his guitar in its case.
