Learn More About Tower Capital Advisors and Our Management

In February 2007, prior to starting TCA, our CEO, Michael DeMita, founded one of the country’s largest ground and rooftop lease aggregation firms. Starting with a $200 million commitment from partner Royal Bank of Scotland-Greenwich Capital, he has raised over $300 million in debt and equity from public and private institutions for this business. He has been active in the aggregation of these assets for over a decade, and, under his leadership, his last firm sold two portfolios of easements/cash flows from cellular tower and rooftop sites for more than $100 million.

After many years of road shows and meetings with investors and institutions interested in owning the assets, his firm and portfolio sold in 2013 to the highest bidders for both – setting record pricing levels and reaping double-digit IRR’s and multiples of returns on capital for his investors.

Mr. DeMita and all other principals of TCA have unblemished ethical and professional backgrounds and a long history of excellent relationships with investors, site owners, wireless carriers and tower companies. TCA’s management has worked with and presented to most, if not all, of the players in private equity, finance, investment banking and the carriers that participate in the space since 2001 and looks forward to working with you as well.

Management Bio


A man with glasses and a beard wearing a suit.

For over twenty-five years, Mike has been an innovator in structured finance and asset aggregation. As both a lender and operator, he has built and structured creative financial alternatives in numerous market sectors, including the franchise, broadcasting and telecommunications industries and managed or personally funded over $3 billion in senior, mezzanine, and equity investments.

He founded his last business, Communications Capital Group (since renamed), in 2007 with a $200 million commitment from debt and equity partner Royal Bank of Scotland-Greenwich Capital raised based on his high ethical standards and a unique, cost-efficient business plan he extensively modeled over many months. He subsequently raised an additional $100 million in debt and equity based on this model in a difficult post-meltdown 2008-2013 environment.

The founding principles of his last firm were vetted under his leadership as CEO, and over the last 8 years, he has aggregated and profitably sold two portfolios of cell site ground and rooftop easements. After the sale of the firm’s portfolio to Blackstone’s infrastructure group in 2013, he demonstrated for the first time that platform value was possible in the space when the then portfolio-less platform sold for a multi-million dollar price tag as well to GTCR. Along the way, his sponsors, partners and investors have been rewarded with double-digit IRRs and multiple returns on invested capital.

After the sale of the business he founded, Mr. DeMita formed Tower Capital Advisors, LLC. TCA’s mission is to change the space he has operated in for over a decade by de-layering the industry and bringing site owners and originators in the space directly to institutional ‘hold’ and strategic (vs. pure financial) investors. Since its inception, TCA has provided free advisory services to dozens of site owners and acted as the financial advisor for institutional clients on transactions totaling more than $400 million.

Since 2015, TCA has been a National Partner of AT&T Mobility working with the carrier to divest and/or acquire their infrastructure and protect their assets from predatory buyers.

Prior to entering the wireless space, Mr. DeMita ran the IT departments of and subsequently managed sizable middle-market lending originations initiatives for public and Fortune 500 companies, including EF Hutton, AT&T Capital, and Chrysler Capital Corporation. He has also served on the Board of Managers for a Goldman-Sachs finance joint-venture.

Mike earned his BA from The Johns Hopkins University and MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business.

"TCA offered us great advice in negotiating our lease agreements and were both responsive and competitive in their acquisition process. I would advise anyone who is not an expert in the tower business to consult with Tower Capital Advisors."
