An interview with Blaine Raddon, Chief Executive Officer, The Channel Company
Our key consideration in choosing a banker to run The Channel Company (TCC) exit process was a team that would dive in deep to understand and convey the story of a complex business. All the TCC fundamentals were fantastic – but the devil was in the details – conveying the importance of the Information Technology Channel and TCC’s positioning within this ecosystem; outlining the seven different go-to-market products and services offered by TCC and the business models for each one; navigating the needs of Stone-Goff as the PE owner, the founding team as sellers, and the management team that would be carrying the business forward. The JEGI CLARITY team worked nonstop and creatively to produce an outcome that exceeded our expectations in terms of results, options, and clarity of process.
