DRIVEN

EXPERIENCED

"Binary Tree is a leading provider of digital-transformation software to large, global enterprises with
complex technology environments. With a unique position in a growth market, we felt we needed an
investment bank that could go a step beyond in helping us position and market the company.
We selected Fairmount as our financial advisor as the firm offered significantly greater value than its
competition, demonstrating not only expert knowledge on running an M&A process, but also an in-depth
understanding of our unique value proposition and fit with potential acquirors. Fairmount was available,
passionate and tenacious in providing support throughout the entire process, including helping us
successfully navigate Covid-related challenges. Ultimately, Fairmount guided us to a successful transaction
that exceeded expectations. Fairmount proved themselves to be not just an advisor, but a trusted and invaluable partner. We highly recommend them."
-Nick Wilkinson, CEO, Binary Tree

Webinar: Preparing for Liquidity in a Post-COVID World

Held July 1, 2020

Beginning in March, many business leaders that had been considering a liquidity event put those plans on hold in response to the uncertainty caused by COVID and the global economic recession. Recently, however, we've begun to see a resurgence in M&A, with an increasing number of new deals coming to market. View three market participants in the thick of the action discuss the current state of the market and what companies can be doing now to prepare for M&A in a post-COVID world.

Webinar: Three Legends and a Recession

Held July 1, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic shutdowns brought to an end a period of 11 straight years of economic growth. And while this recession is certainly unique, challenges are being exacerbated by the fact that, given the length of the prior economic expansion, many executives have limited or no experience managing the minefields of a recession. For those executives who successfully managed through them, previous recessions have provided valuable lessons.

 

View three past recipients of the PACT Legend Lifetime Achievement Award, all key leaders in our region who have each helped myriad companies successfully navigate the waters of severe recession, discuss the unique challenges, opportunities and lessons learned from past recessions as we seek to understand - and reemerge from - the current one.

Webinar: How to Run a Successful Virtual Company

Held May 22, 2020

With the impact of COVID-19, most if not all office-based businesses have been forced to go virtual. But what should executives do differently when running a virtual company to ensure it functions successfully? Nick Wilkinson, CEO of Binary Tree, has a unique understanding of how to successfully operate a virtual organization, including both the tricks and potential traps, having gained experience leading a 100% virtual organization of more than 150 employees spread over 10 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. He and moderator Allen Born review the technology, processes, and culture that have allowed Binary Tree, a leader in cloud migration solutions, to compete at the highest levels.
