My mission is to buy and grow a company over the long term. I'm looking for a business owner that wants to retire but doesn’t have the right leader to succeed him/her or a way to get bought out. I'd like to work with this owner to smoothly transition the company so they can harvest the value they have created and know that their business, team and customers will be in capable hands.
My Focus and Background
I am an experienced servant leader with a long-term focus. I have a passion for working with people to figure out how to better serve customers and accomplish the mission. When we get that right, the long-term financial results follow.
I joined my last company in 2002 after its attempt to go public fell through because the .com bubble had burst. The company made software systems to help small businesses price, cost and manufacture jobs and to run their businesses. Together, with the founder and the team, we turned around the company. Revenue grew by over 375%, productivity doubled and non-owner wage levels increased by up to 500%. We repaid every debt holder, which was a rarity for companies in that time period.
Through our systems and service, we had a huge impact on many of our customers’ lives and businesses. The most common reflection that customers would share with us was "I don't know how we did business before using Cyrious. I can't imagine running the business without it."
