Emmanuel has lived and conducted business across USA, Mexico, and EMEA. He holds his B.Sc. Engineering from Calvin College (minors in Mathematics and Business), and MBA Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. He resides in Coastal North Carolina with his wife and three children.
He is known for creating out-sized returns in a short amount of time for private equity, majority-owned or solely-owned companies. He has helped business owners to build and sell companies since 2008 — for example, he helped an enterprise sell three times in five years, generating IRR of >40%, 50%, and 55% for the equity owners by increasing both EBITDA and Sale multiple.
At the start of the equity creation process, he finds, analyzes, negotiates with, and integrates external M&A partners. Then, using a performance improvement program he designed, he adjusts costs and improve efficiency, thereby increasing EBITDA. He also builds detailed, precised, user-friendly sales quotation models that are instrumental in growing the top line, further elevating EBITDA and Sales multiple. At the end of the process in sell stage, he helps build Confidential Information Memorandums (CIMs), drives the RFI process, and management presentations to potential buyers, and helps the owner maximize value in the market place.
