Abstract: CEOs and former CEOs are a dominant force on the boards of major companies. They are also the most sought-after candidates when boards search for new directors. How do these company leaders, so accustomed to being the principal decision-makers in their companies, adapt to the more limited strategic oversight and advisory role that boards play? In our last episode of season six on the Principled Podcast, host David Greenberg explores the lessons that CEOs and former CEOs can bring to boards about purpose, culture, and values.

Featured Host:  David Greenberg serves as Chair of the Governance and Risk Assessment Committee and a member of the Audit Committee of International Seaways (NYSE: INSW), one of the largest global crude oil and petroleum tanker companies.  Mr. Greenberg's previous board experience (2006 to 2016) was as the independent director – and member of both the Audit and Compensation Committees --of APCO Worldwide, a private communications and government affairs consultancy and as a director (2013 to 2016) of Clean Tech Group, which creates opportunities for industrial companies to invest in innovative, clean technology.  He also served for 5 years as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The Keystone Center, a Colorado non-profit that brings together oil, chemical and pharmaceutical companies with leading NGOs to find solutions to complex public policy challenges at the federal and state levels.

I was pleased to have John Ferrari join me on the Acquisition Talk podcast to discuss a wide range of issues facing DoD's ability to field game-changing technologies in an era of strategic competition. He recently retired from the Army as a Major General and director of program analysis and evaluation at the G8. He is now a non-resident senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Chief Financial Officers of QOMPLX, a data analytics and cybersecurity firm. We touch on: - The impact of inflation on defense - How the Army IVAS HoloLens program shows the future of acquisition - Ways for organizing JADC2 and interoperability - The challenges of running DoD on PowerPoints and disjointed IT systems - Whether new entrants can scale in defense without suing the government In the episode, John argues that DoD's process looks to replace existing "legacy" platforms with newer versions of the same thing: aircraft, ships, ground vehicles, satellites, etc. This focus on the future leads to a dearth of experimentation today, leading to poor choices on those "next-gen" platforms. Instead, he argues that so-called legacy systems should be used as experimental test-beds for integrating new technologies. For example, outfitting a navy ship with fiber optics and 5G, deploying a commercial-based operating system, and allowing nontraditionals to quickly deliver capabilities against that. Another example is the Army's JLTV program, which is basically a small MRAP and while it met its requirement from 2012, has none of the new technologies widely available in the auto-industry like anti-lock breaks and backup cameras, not to mention a suite of sensors and automated software updates found in a Tesla. DoD doesn't have decades to move towards military technologies that have caught up with the 21st century. "If you're building new systems and it takes you 30 or 40 years to get there, rather than taking commercial technology today and embedding it in the current systems, you'll never get there." While the Secretary of Defense can accelerate this move towards rapid experimentation and adoption, it takes his personal attention to each and every project. That cannot scale. The system can only move as fast as trust allows, and since the 1970s there has been a major breakdown in trust between the executive and legislative branches. John argues that information technology provides an opportunity to build back trust, similar to the way parents have learned to trust putting their child into an Uber because they can track location, see the drive's profile, and so forth.

If you constantly feel like you're not saving up money no matter how much you earn, this episode is exactly what you need to change that. Tune in to find out more!    Episode Introduction:  Our guest today is a CFO and she's not holding back on giving us note-worthy tips in order to help uplevel our financial game.    Episode Summary:  Stephanie Skryzowski walks us through her journey of quitting law and choosing finance as her field of career, the major challenges she faced, how she overcame those, as well as action steps that she would recommend every business owner to start taking no matter how far along they're in their business. We also discuss some major roles related to finance and when you should make those hires along with simple tricks to do your own bookkeeping.   Main Takeaways: When you wish to spend your money somewhere, make it a part of your financial planning. This way, you'll not feel overwhelmed or taken aback when the expense does take place.  If you have a fear of speaking in front of people or presenting something, try to get extremely well-versed with what you're talking about. Your comfort level with the material of the presentation really helps you speak better. A bookkeeper's job is to make sure that your accounts and profit and loss statements are recorded. They provide you with periodic reports about your finances. A tax accountant's job is to know the ins and outs of taxation and IRS rules. They file your taxes and help you with tax-saving strategies. A Chief Financial Officer's (CFO) job is to help with the business side of things such as cash flow forecasting, profitability, and revenue analysis, etc. A financial planner or CFP's job is to look after wealth management such as investments and retirement plans, etc. Set up a separate bank account for your business and personal expenses so that you can clearly differentiate between the two. Get comfortable with some sort of an accounting system in order to look at your Profit & Loss. Allocate your money to the following categories:  Taxes Paying Yourself Expenses Profit   Fun Facts About Stephanie Skryzowski: Some of her favorite books are Profit First by Mike Michalowicz and We Should All Be Millionaires by Rachel Rodgers.   Help us mentor other entrepreneurs through the power of storytelling by rating us and leaving a positive review on Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/law-chat-with-girija/id1528580730   Get the FREE Five Day Legal Audit: https://yourcontractbuddy.com/5-day-free-legal-audit-challenge/   Join Law Chat for Entrepreneurs Free Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/449334726047480   Find Stephanie Skryzowski: Website: https://100degreesconsulting.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/100degreesconsulting/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/100degreesconsulting Personal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/stephanie.skry/ Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/100-degrees-of-entrepreneurship/id1554154587 Get the visual experience, watch the videocast for the episode here: https://youtu.be/EkGpV3aF9WU   Connect With Girija: Website: https://www.gbplaw.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gbplaw/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GBPLaw/   Get Ready To Use Contact Templates At: https://yourcontractbuddy.com/

Middle Market Mergers and Acquisitions by Colonnade Advisors

This episode continues our series of "industry spotlights," in which we focus on specific trends and opportunities in middle market M&A transactions. This episode focuses on the automotive reconditioning industry, a $5.4 billion industry that is highly fragmented and ripe for consolidation. Colonnade has extensive transaction experience in the automotive services industry and has been the sell side or buy side M&A advisor on many of the automotive services industry transactions that have taken place over the last decade. Colonnade has insider-level mastery of the drivers of valuation, competitive positioning, business trends, relevant metrics, and the right buyer universe, enabling us to provide superior deal execution to our clients. Colonnade recently published a white paper on the automotive reconditioning industry. The white paper is available here. In this episode, we answer the following questions: What is automotive reconditioning? Why do automotive dealerships outsource reconditioning? What is the industry size, and who are the largest participants in the industry? What are the value drivers for automotive reconditioning companies? What are the M&A trends in the automotive reconditioning industry?   What is automotive reconditioning? (02:10) Gina: Automotive reconditioning is the process of making a newly acquired vehicle retail-ready. Dealerships get cars in a couple of ways. On the new side, they get it directly from the OEMs, and on the used side, they may be buying it from auctions or taking vehicles as a trade-in. Used vehicles need to be reconditioned to be car lot ready.   Do dealerships have an in-house reconditioning department? (04:17) Gina: The majority of dealerships outsource reconditioning.   What is the size of the automotive reconditioning industry, and who are the industry participants? (05:01) Gina: We estimate that the automotive reconditioning industry is a $5.4 billion market. It is comprised of mainly single technician entrepreneurs, a technician who is skilled in a specific trade. When a dealership outsources reconditioning, they are probably outsourcing it to three to five reconditioning technicians that are independent contractors.   What types of dealerships typically outsource automotive reconditioning versus having it in-house? (06:25) Gina: The largest dealerships are the most likely to outsource because they realize how inefficient it is to have highly paid employees reconditioning cars.  They could use that time doing much more valuable service lane work. Independent dealerships and smaller dealerships tend to have automotive reconditioning done in-house.   How many companies are in the automotive reconditioning industry? (07:50) Gina:  We don't really see many companies of scale. Based on the number of dealerships out there, we estimated as many as 40,000 independent technicians nationwide doing this type of work.   Why do dealerships outsource automotive reconditioning? (09:57) Gina: Skilled technicians are expensive and in high demand at dealerships. Outsourcing automotive reconditioning helps to keep up the profitability of the dealership.   Why do dealerships need to make vehicles retail ready as quickly as possible? (10:30) Gina: New and used vehicle supplies are low, and demand is high. Low supply and high demand are driving prices of cars to an all-time high, so dealerships need to get vehicles retail ready as quickly as possible.   How do dealerships manage relationships with multiple outsourced automotive reconditioning vendors? (13:02) Gina: It is a lot of process management, and there is some software to manage the process, but still, managing five different vendors is inefficient, especially if the dealers do not control their daily activity because they are independent.   Who are the largest participants in the automotive reconditioning industry? (14:05) Gina: The largest in the industry is Dent Wizard. Some companies, such as Streamline Recon, are located in large metropolitan markets, and they may have some scale. But, aside from these companies, there are not many companies of scale. This industry is very fragmented.   What systems or processes do automotive reconditioning companies need to scale up? (16:16) Gina: There are a couple of reconditioning workflow management software available, which seem to be critical to any dealership technician relationships that they want to run efficiently. There is room for the adoption of robust workflow management software in the reconditioning process.   Does automotive reconditioning include fixing a vehicle's mechanical issues? (18:00) Gina: The mechanical part, making sure the car runs without banging noises and that it starts and stops, is all done before it gets to the reconditioning center. Automotive reconditioning is all about appearance.   How does the collision center industry compare with the automotive reconditioning sector? (19:10) Gina: The collision industry is a very different market. The work is largely being paid for by insurance companies in the collision industry and has nothing to do with dealerships. So, you do not see collision centers doing reconditioning work very often. They are very separate businesses.   What are the value drivers for automotive reconditioning companies? (20:38) Gina: Value drivers include size, number of employees, scale, and diversification of revenue. Also, process management is an important component.   What are the M&A trends in the automotive reconditioning industry? (22:34) Gina: We will see quite a bit of M&A activity in this space over the next decade. It is a profitable industry that is important to dealerships. Dealerships outsource automotive reconditioning to several vendors, which is inefficient in terms of process management. Automotive reconditioning companies that can do it all for dealerships will be the winners.     Host Information   Gina Cocking Gina Cocking serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Colonnade Advisors.

Christian Lee has had the unique position of CFO in two industries that have been particularly impacted by the pandemic, real estate and supply chain. Christian left WeWork in early 2021 for Transfix, a hyper-growth startup and leading freight marketplace connecting shippers to carriers. His proximity to these industries has underscored in him the need for CFOs to pay attention to the problems the pandemic has surfaced.While 2022 is indeed a new year, Christian stresses that finance professionals shouldn't overlook challenges in hopes of a ‘new normal.' At Transfix, he's taking a data-forward approach to solving the business problem of inefficiencies in the supply chain as well as leveraging automation on the finance side of the business. Christian emphasizes the importance of finance partnering with the data science team in order to best optimize and drive insights from the data gathered. He says the whole team should be on the same page by having equal access to real-time data, but it's not enough to simply be in the know: you have to use it as a jumping off point for asking the right questions to move the business forward.On this episode of The CFO Playbook, Christian talks about disrupting the supply chain industry in the midst of a pandemic, describes why automation is in his top three priorities for 2022, and underlines why Transfix places real-time data at the center of every decision they make.Connect with Christian on LinkedIn.Connect with our host Ross on LinkedIn.If you want a better way to track and control your team's spend, check out Soldo.com.

On this episode of The CFO Playbook, we share some of the best advice on technology and automation that we've received from recent guests.Lessons we cover in this episode:It's key to build a structural foundation for finance upon automation and technology: Hyper growth companies view technology as the ‘engine room' of growth and a critical foundation for scale. The days of thinking that automation is a “nice to have” are over. Building automation can be far more rewarding for teams than following a well-trodden playbook. Once you've laid the groundwork, with the right technology for your company: Be deliberate in determining which technology tools to invest in and why. Start by identifying your pain points. Automation increases efficiency and creates more time to harness strategic thinking. If done well, technology beats throwing headcount at a problem. Hiring and managing for automation is vital: Automation can be great for employee retention, but you have to hire the right employees to leverage the technology. Great managers should take advantage of the extra time automation allows to challenge and engage their finance team with creative, mission-critical problems. Over time, the skills and requirements of a finance team are shifting to meet the demands of technology-enabled businesses. The need for and benefits of automation aren't going away anytime soon: Automation can help CFOs directly. Sharper forecasting, real-time cost controls, and fewer processes can create space for CFOs to focus on company strategy. With the CFO's responsibilities increasing rapidly over time, automation allows for far more effective partnering with the CEO and the rest of the executive team.  Tune into the full episode to get all the best insights on leveraging technology and automation in finance.Connect with our host Ross on LinkedIn.If you want a better way to track and control your team's spend, check out Soldo.com.
