Case Study

Co-Founder Blues

A specialty-marketing company in the life sciences sector enjoyed a solid brand reputation, marked by high customer satisfaction, strong recurring revenues, and a consistent sales pipeline.

Behind the scenes, the company was beset by a divisive culture in which the three equity partners operating in silos, failed to convey a unified vision or put in place a transparent succession plan. Over time, this led to low employee morale, turnover among key contributors, and three failed attempts to sell the company over a 10-year period.

29Bison was hired to address the cultural issues that were being flagged by prospective buyers as problem areas.
