“The exciting part of my role at BGF is about understanding the short and long term objectives of owner-managers and tailoring a solution that gets them where they want to be. It’s not just about investing patient, minority capital. I find that BGF can really help in situations where there is a desire to align in figuring out corporate strategy, succession planning and shareholder transition.”
