CEO & Founder,
When planning the sale of my healthcare branding agency after 30 years, I knew what I needed, a tall order, that included an advisor that had experience running and growing agencies, financial acumen, positioning and selling strategy and most important, someone I could trust. I was fortunate to meet Bill O’Donnell who helped me develop and refine my businesses value proposition, create the best buyer profile, and help me navigate many discussions with buyers and challenging staff issues. At every hurdle, he showed me one of his best assets, patience, and a consultative style that worked well for me and the buyer.
We engaged Bill O’Donnell and Athru Partners in evaluating and analyzing our company. This allowed us to take a hard look at ourselves, our business model. Athru helped us refine our value proposition, identify growth opportunities, and advise us on how we should proceed with future plans. It allowed us to make important decisions in regard to our future including next steps for business building and succession planning for my partner and myself.
David and his team at Athru Partners have been extraordinary in advising and assisting with new business development, positioning, and structure for our digital marketing agency. David brings a wealth of knowledge, decades of experience, which helped us through crisis, navigate our firm, and set course for the future.
CEO and Founder,
Rise Strategy Group
Dave’s passion, ambitious work ethic and ability to creatively communicate complex topics is unparalleled to anyone I know. He is a strategic leader who commands great respect from everyone he works with.
CEO & Founder,
“I have worked with Bill for over 20 years.” He helped me tremendously with securing investment dollars for my company. Bill patiently spent years teaching me about the investment bank and private equity space. His constant mentorship and advice throughout the process not only helped me gain confidence in my decisions, but also provided me with a trusted sounding board. I would recommend Bill to anyone needing a first class, extremely ethical and honest partner in their company’s growth plans.
