Pre- and post-close merger integration planning shouldn’t be treated as an afterthought. What you do in those first 3 to 5 months will very likely determine how you perform over the next 3 to 5 years.

How Brian is building a better working world

“In serving clients, my primary goal is to have a material impact on their performance trajectory by helping them navigate through the challenges and opportunities of acquisition due diligence and M&A integration. I pride myself on telling  clients what is instructional to hear, not what they want to hear. The sole objective of M&A, alliances and joint ventures is to build higher performing companies, which in turn results in a better working world.”
