    The Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) market is the primary engine driving employment and economic growth in our country, and Private Equity is becoming a bigger and bigger part of this market. Annual middle-market deal value surpassed $400 billion in 2018 per PitchBook. As the SME market evolves, so has the Private Equity money chasing these companies. Whether you are an owner-operator of a private business that is looking to sell or take some “chips” off the table, an executive considering a management opportunity with a private equity owned business, or looking to partner with a private equity investor to acquire a business, there are many variables to consider. And there are different private equity structures and types of providers that you need to be aware of, each bringing unique skills and resources to the table. 

    Join fellow CEOs for this fascinating event, with a panel designed to illustrate what the different Private Equity groups look like, what the different groups can bring to the transaction, what levels of control each may seek, what contributions they are expecting from their minority or majority equity partners and management teams going forward, and how to work together in building to an even greater exit down the road.

    We will convene at historic Old Parkland, home to many of the top PE firms, exclusive family offices and other power players in Big D’s quiet-money world of finance and private investments. We'll have a private reception in Cypress Growth Capital’s office, Suite 100, before moving promptly at 6:00 to the "Pig Room" for a panel discussion. Please plan to be at Cypress Growth Capital’s office before 6:00 as we will have a guide to take us to the famous “Pig Room”.

    SCHEDULE:

    5:00 - 6:00 pm Mingling & Cocktails

Jack himself has been recognized as one of the top ten retail visionaries of his time by the Women’s Wear Daily.

        After completing a B.A. at Wesleyan University in 1961 and an M.A. at the University of California-Berkeley in Chinese History, Jack joined the family business, Ed Mitchell, Inc., which was founded by his parents, Ed and Norma, and later became Mitchells of Westport.

In December of 2009, they also proudly acquired Wilkes Bashford in San Francisco and Palo Alto, California and in October of 2015 they partnered with Marios in Seattle and Portland.

        Under his leadership, the Mitchell Stores have become well known for employee engagement and longevity and providing exceptional customer service and high quality merchandise in an exciting, friendly, and visually dynamic atmosphere.

        In 2003, Jack Mitchell launched a “second career” as a speaker and author. His first book, Hug Your Customers: The Proven Way to Personalize Sales and Achieve Astounding Results, was a Wall Street Journal best seller and received rave reviews in the New York Times. In addition, it was endorsed by Warren Buffet on the cover with the following quote: “It’s a gem. I wish everyone at Berkshire would follow his advice – we would own the world.” In April, 2015, a revised and updated version of Hug Your Customers was released. In 2008, Jack published his second book, Hug Your People: The Proven Way to Hire, Inspire, and Recognize Your Employees to Achieve Remarkable Results where he illustrates a business blueprint to personalize relationships to drive success and achieve greater satisfaction at work. In 2018, Jack published his third book, Selling the Hug Your Customers Way: The Proven Process for Becoming a Passionate and Successful Salesperson for Life which illustrates how to apply the proven principles of Hug Your Customers to refine selling techniques, boost sales and keep customers coming back for more.

        Jack has become known as a passionate enthusiastic public speaker, keynoting at over 200 events for corporations including Merrill Lynch, Pitney Bowes, Morgan Stanley, Conde Nast, Nike, Starbucks, Wells Fargo, Luxottica and Harvard University addressing audiences of all sizes and reaching over 50,000 people globally with Hug Your Customers/Hug Your People presentations. Jack has appeared on The NBC Today Show, and Kudlow & Cramer TV show as well as numerous radio interviews and online and print articles. Jack has been quoted in national magazines as a customer service and management leadership expert. In April 2005, INC Magazine listed Jack as one of the 26 Entrepreneurs We Love. Jack also offers hugging workshops for corporations.

        Jack shares with his family a number of Community leadership Awards from the Anti-Defamation league, The Menswear Division of UJA-Federation of New York, and Sacred Heart University.
