North Texas Private Company CEO Forum

Founders 2016 North Texas ForumBy: Duane Donner

Founders recently hosted their North Texas Private Company CEO Forum at the Petroleum Club in Dallas, Texas. The Founders Forum was attended by 17 executives representing 16 Texas and Louisiana companies.  Robert Dye, Chief Economist from Comerica provided a macroeconomic update, Brian Hegi, Managing Director at Prophet Equity, delivered a buyer’s perspective of value, and Gene Bazemore, Managing Director for Founders, and other Founders team members gave an update on M&A markets and the value of an M&A process. The discussion was followed by enjoyable conversations over a casual lunch at the Petroleum Club Grille. With a full dose of southern hospitality, Founders Forums are designed to foster an environment that promotes fellowship among executives and business owners while providing them insightful and timely information to make the best strategic decisions for their company.
