Brad specializes in highly complex deals involving multiple buyers, rapid add-on investments, hostile takeovers, multi-company mergers, and carveouts-to-integrations. Throughout his career he has built deep expertise in several industries—including healthcare, manufacturing, and software—that he applies in due diligence, cost takeout opportunities, program management, and target operating models. This helps clients realize their investment thesis faster and with better results.
