Podcast: Merge or Acquire? Here’s a Step you may be Overlooking

Podcast: Merge or Acquire? Here’s a Step you may be Overlooking

This episode of #PoisedforExit featured J. Forrest, a Principal of Employee Strategies, a firm providing Organizational Leadership services to low-middle market companies. 

We’ve talked about Culture development before on the show, but never from the standpoint of a future merger or acquisition. That we learned, is a different animal!

To provide a bit of background, J. has always had a love for baseball and had a job out of college with the MN Twins in the ticket office. After the baseball Strike in 1994 he got called back to his old job, but really felt that the Culture was different and it made him realize he had a calling to and a knack for organizational leadership. His experience in working with teams (literally and professionally) has become his strong suit!
