CEO in 10 series with James Bergeron, entrepreneurial advice for large and mid size businesses. 


 (1)  Learning the value of leadership and messaging for CEOs subsequent to the US election [this is not a political discussion],  (2)  CEOs proactively looking for gaps in skill set and experience and how to fill these gaps and (3)  The human side of being a CEO

Bergeron is one of a few CEOs in the U.S. that has raised both private equity (also known as a leveraged buyout or “LBO”) and venture capital to fund companies he has bought and built – before becoming CEO of both – with each eventually being acquired by either a financial buyer or large strategic acquirer.

Geoff Mobisson, Co-Founder and Board member at Levementum, a customer relationship management (CRM) software provider, was a client,  for about two years.

“James was instrumental in coaching [CEO] Doug [Guilbeau] and I by defining success in terms of getting the business ready, and even situationally on operational and strategic needs,” Mobisson says. “108 Partners managed the entire exit/investment process.  Essentially they provided CEO coaching, consultancy and investment banking services all wrapped together. They are perfectly set up to help middle market tech or value-added growth companies.”
