BOSTON-MA Why do 93% of Private Companies report an increase in EBIT after implementing a Board? According to Lodestone’s 2019 Private Company Board Survey, this is just one of the likely impacts from adding an independent Board of Directors. At this event, our seasoned panelists and moderator with decades of experience on private company boards will discuss how private companies can drive superior performance through the strategic use of corporate and advisory boards.
This event's discussion is designed for private company business owners and management, board members, and prospective board members. Key takeaways addressed:
• How do Boards promote accountability and drive performance in private companies?
• What topics are likely to emerge when starting or joining a private company board?
• How has our panelists' board membership directly enhanced company performance?
• Who fits the profile of a private company board director?

Dunn represented, marketed and successfully sold our business. My partner and I interviewed a number of investment bankers prior to the transaction and chose Kevin because of his broad industry experience, professional reputation and ability to get deals done. Kevin and his team learned everything about our business and put together a comprehensive offering memorandum which generated tremendous interest from both private equity and strategic buyers. Kevin conducted an efficient auction of our company and was able to “walk-up” the ultimate sale price substantially. We never second guessed our decision to hire Kevin and I strongly recommend him for consideration for your project.

We had a challenging transaction – selling our Fulflex division to an international buyer who was also a major joint venture partner of ours. We engaged Dunn Rush & Co. to help us navigate through the anticipated and unforeseen issues. They were with us every step of the way and their experience and knowledge was instrumental in accomplishing our goals.

Dunn Rush & Co. helped us with a recent sale of a portfolio company, and we were very pleased with the process and outcome. Greg and his team did a particularly effective job of quickly organizing materials, contacting a targeted group of potential buyers, and creating competition among multiple interested parties. Hands-on, senior-level attention throughout the process was an important part of getting our transaction done, and Dunn Rush delivered start-to-finish.
