History and Origin

IMG Rebel was created in 2013 by combining Infrastructure Management Group, Inc. (IMG) and RebelGroup. This union allows IMG Rebel to realize the significant strengths of both companies in unique markets, competencies, and geographies.

Founded in 1994 by leading infrastructure finance expert Steve Steckler, IMG specialized in improving the management, finance, and development of infrastructure facilities for public and private clients. In accordance with its corporate motto, “Bringing Business to Government,” IMG helped its clients bridge the gap between their infrastructure needs and financial resources by focusing on public-private partnerships (P3s), innovative capital financing, optimized project delivery, risk assessment and mitigation, and performance improvement. Highlights of the firm's extensive high-profile projects include: advising on the $43 billion California High-Speed Rail Phase 1 project, performing due diligence for the $588 million financing of the I-495 Capital Beltway High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes, serving as the lead financial advisor on the Philadelphia International Airport's $7 billion capital program, and developing a comprehensive assessment of the governance, operations, capital program, and long-term business strategy of the city of Tulsa's water and wastewater systems.
