We are the investment committee – there is no need to raise third party equity to get a deal done.
Small Business Expertise
Our founders combine twenty years of private equity expertise, special operations leadership and CEO roles in small businesses.
Our Brydon CEO-in-Residence partners are truly unique: we selected less than 2% of applicants to Brydon’s most recent cohort.
Stewardship, Mission & Values
Our founding partners served a combined 12 combat deployments in Iraq & Afghanistan with the most elite Navy SEAL team; for us, reputation is everything.
We view our small business owners as partners in a transaction and we offer fair and full valuations for the businesses they have spent their lives building.
No one wants to waste time and resources in a broad sale process that drags on and goes nowhere. We have been conducting due diligence and deal processes for over 20 years and we have deep expertise in the industries in which we acquire businesses. We run transparent due diligence processes that use our and our sellers’ time efficiently.
We have seen over and over again how proprietary information can “leak” into the market through broad sale processes. We were entrusted with our nation’s most sensitive information in the military and we take this same approach to all of our interactions with small business owners.
CULTURE AND LEGACY
We understand what it means to serve and bring this ethos to owning and operating a small business. We are not a financial institution that views your business as an “asset” in a larger portfolio. Instead, this is the only business that our Brydon CEO-in-Residence is acquiring. If you are focused on your legacy and the culture of your business after you sell it, then consider selling your business to a Brydon CEO.
We understand service, selflessness and integrity and we try to approach all steps in a transaction, from the initial indication of interest to the final signing (and beyond), with the utmost of integrity and candor. We want small business owners who have sold to a Brydon-backed CEO in Residence to be our strongest references.
