Jim and Coley's network of individuals and institutions played a critical role in helping us raise over $100 million of debt and equity.
We invited Pacific Lake into our deal to help get our sizable acquisition across the finish line. They moved quickly and brought experienced software guidance to the diligence process and to our board. Our transaction closed in large part to their willingness to step up and lead the charge. Adding Pacific Lake to our team was, and has been, a game changer.
From Coley helping us raise our search fund to Keith providing spot-on guidance, Pacific Lake's team has been there for us every step of the way. Knowing they'll continue to be there when we close a deal gives us confidence in our conversations with owners. Pacific Lake’s resources – financial and strategic – changed the way we thought about our search.
After acquiring CLEO, Jim served as a mentor, role model, and differentiated board adviser. His and Pacific Lake’s integrity and commitment to building deep relationships have made them a great business partner. I have been delighted to be a part of the Pacific Lake family.
In every stage, Jim and Coley went beyond the call of duty. My success within the Search Fund model is indebted to their guidance.
