Mergers and acquisitions happen in business. Combining two businesses with two different staffs and two different cultures can be cause for concern.
Patrick Morin is a Managing Director with Transact Capital Partners, a Virginia-based investment banking firm that specializes in the mergers and acquisitions of privately owned companies. He is also a founding partner of BrightHammer, LLC., a global consultancy that assists in post-merger cultural integrations.
Together, we will discuss:
- Bringing different corporate cultures together amicably;
- The Buy-In vs. Performance Matrix; and
- How to initiate a corporate culture overhaul.
This interesting and delicate topic is sure to be a great discussion.
