I recently joined VERTESS as a managing director. I'll be providing merger and acquisition (M+A) and consulting services primarily to the behavioral health and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment markets. Like many of my new colleagues, I previously owned and operated a company in the space I will be working in for VERTESS. But that's not all: I also have firsthand, personal experience with substance misuse.
In this column, I'll share a little about this journey with you, how it motivated me to open my company, and several of the key lessons I learned from the sales process.
