In this session, Jeff discusses the ins-and-outs of successfully executing an inorganic strategy (from target discovery through integration) that can be a staple to any holistic growth strategy.
Jeff is a proven financial executive and leader who brings 20+ years of transaction experience through both his time as a Managing Director and Co-Head of Software M&A at Goldman Sachs and the last decade where he has worn the CFO hat for 6 large, PE-backed businesses that pursued an active M&A strategy to drive growth including SumTotal (acq. by Skillsoft), Infor, Benefitfocus, Accrent (acq. by Fortive), Aptos (acq. by Goldman Sachs MBD), and JAGGAER. The successful implementation of an inorganic strategy can be a significant source of leverage and value creation but it requires a clear strategy, discipline, and follow-through. In this Master Class, as an accomplished software M&A practitioner, Jeff shares key lessons learned to navigating inorganic growth strategies successfully.
