CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Don's cordial nature, incisive thought and impeccable reputation are the drivers for his success. In our case a deal with an orthopedic strategic, initiated and concluded expeditiously and without drama. It was truly a pleasure working with him."


Board Member with Emerging Growth Company

"We hired Don to conduct a valuation analysis for our firm and he gave us one of the most thorough, comprehensive and knowledgeable reports I’ve seen in 25 years of reading valuation reports. Not only was his methodology spot on, but he also delivered a particularly thorough review of both value drivers and value detractors for our company and its technology. Don utilized several valuation techniques in his analysis including, of course, the standard recent transactions approach. With this work product, we were able to discuss our firm’s value authoritatively with prospective corporate investors."


CEO of Privately-Held, Technology-Based Company

"Don was a tremendous help in keeping our strategic planning, analysis, and business development efforts focused. He understands what large biomedical companies are looking for, and he was able to steer us to the right companies and, more importantly, the right people at those companies. His immense knowledge and deal-making experience was invaluable as he closely worked with our leadership team to navigate that difficult process. We ended up with two viable opportunities from multinational biomedical companies and successfully concluded a deal with one."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"As a newcomer to the musculoskeletal space, we approached Don about reviewing our Business Plan, sharing latest trends and assessing different markets and potential partners. He recommended the most viable opportunities to pursue given the regulatory and economic climate and did so in a thoughtful and direct manner – and those recommendations were approved by our Board. The end result was an agreement successfully concluded with a large strategic that we're counting on to benefit us for many years to come."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Don was instrumental in advising after a strategic approached us about an exit. He offered valuable insights about the overall transaction process and offered particular value in preparing us for due diligence and during negotiations -- where we successfully closed at a valuation that we found desirable."


CEO of Privately-Held, Technology-Based Company

“I gave Don the assignment of identifying potential acquirers of my technology. He came up with a number of out-of-the-box companies that weren’t even on my radar screen. We wound up selling to one of those companies shortly after. Excellent work, Don”.


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Since we were seeking to raise money, I asked Don to put together a detailed—but unbiased—report targeted at potential investors which included an overview of our specific market, the various technologies that compete against ours, a competitive analysis and regulatory update, our “value-drivers,” market and Company projections and risk factors. The Report proved to be a success—we raised $2 million, which has allowed us to accelerate our development and commercialization efforts in the US and O-US markets."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Through thick and think, Don diligently maintained his role as trusted advisor, as we endeavored to find a buyer for the Company. Although we did not achieve the exit we had hoped for, it certainly was not for lack of effort on Don’s part. He was indefatigable in his efforts to work his extensive network of strategics, and served as a faithful and insightful sounding board throughout the process."


COO of Publicly Traded Medical Device Company

"Don has impressive knowledge about the industry as well as its trends and new developments. We very much appreciated his high professionalism in discussing the various business opportunities we presented and we benefited from his multiple US and international contacts in the industry. He led us through a successful negotiation and deal with a well targeted US partner. Being a non-US based company with a strategic focus on the US market, we feel efficiently supported by Don and by having him there on the spot and navigating with his excellent communication skills."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Don led us through a well planned out transaction process by first identifying viable US and O-US target companies, contacting them, composing and sending “teasers”, arranging followup calls and meetings, and assisting with challenging negotiations. We eventually sold our business to a strategic that I honestly thought was a 1000-1 shot when originally introduced by Don. He’s an excellent communicator and followup-er and acts as sounding board during the entire process."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"I have had the privilege of using Don as my reliable sounding board. He often encourages me to reflect, think critically and approach business problems from different perspectives; always with the intent of helping me to negotiate a better deal. He is an articulate communicator, meticulous with follow-up's and quick to leverage his expansive network for help."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Don provided a framework for a planning process that allowed us to bring the right people together, formulate elements of the company's strategy, allocate resources, set financial and operating targets and align the priorities of the management team. He challenged us to focus on the handful of key decisions that we have to get right—and execute on—over the next several years in order to thrive in a more challenging health care environment."


CEO of Privately-Held Medical Device Company

"Don has completed several technical assessments for us, all of which have been quite comprehensive, covering such issues as clinical need, regulatory and reimbursement paths, potential revenue generation and key risk factors. His recommendations are well thought out and go beyond the typical go/no-go recommendation. Don's insightful analysis has greatly facilitated our decision making process."


Partner of Top 100 Law Firm

"Don was an excellent expert witness. He came with great insight into the orthopedic market and was invaluable in assisting the case team distill and present a breadth of information about the market in a clear and concise manner. We found Don’s professionalism and relevant experience to be second to none. He worked closely with the case team throughout the pre-trial and trial process, and through his hard work and dedication, strengthened our case."


Partner of Top 100 Law Firm

"We could not have asked for a better expert witness for our case. Don has great knowledge and offers a unique perspective of the inner workings of the orthopedic industry and combines that expertise with a firm work ethic. His extremely useful insights greatly assisted our litigation position."
