Staying Flexible When Strategies Shift
Our private equity client held an early-stage investment in a cardiovascular medical device company. They had a promising new product and wanted a new board member to help them navigate the byzantine FDA and CE regulatory processes as quickly as possible. With approval, they hoped to exit through a liquidity event.
Retail Apparel Tagging
The world of fashion has changed. Gone are the days of seasonal clothing lines. Instead, clothing manufactures are continuing to push their designers and their manufacturers to turn out new lines in a matter of weeks. Our client was interested in an apparel tagging company that has the capabilities to keep up with the new speed of fashion. Before moving forward, our client needed to better understand the adoption of fast fashion, the role of customer service and how the larger competitors felt about jumping into this niche space.
Value Added Refrigerated Fresh Products
Upon purchasing a regional refrigerated foods company, our client turned to us to help them build the advisory team they needed to expand. After a few rough years due to changes in regulation, high fuel prices, and industry forces outside their control, the company was eager to make a turn around and build a national brand. To be successful, they needed Board members who were experienced operators and brand champions.
