Jonathan Wilson is the CEO and chief value creator at Dubb Value Creation. He graduated from college with a chemical engineering degree, but he didn't want to pursue a career in engineering. Jonathan ended up getting an internship at Accenture and accepted their offer, starting his career.
Jonathan Wilson is an M&A advisor and consultant who has worked with Bank of America, Deloitte, and Grant Thornton. He describes his experience with M&A as “falling in love a little bit” and decided to go out on his own to “eat what he kills”. Ronald Skelton notes that having experience in M&A doesn’t mean you can advise it, and that the skillset to be a great teacher is unique. Wilson worked with companies doing deals of $25 million and above while at Deloitte and Grant Thornton.
Jonathan Wilson and Ronald Skelton discuss the differences between smaller and larger deals. Wilson has experience working on deals ranging from $2 million to $3 billion. Skelton notes that there are still valuable lessons to learn from Wilson's experience with larger deals that can be applied to smaller deals. Skelton suggests that the listeners, who are mostly buying SBA deals for below $5 million, are looking to buy and sell the company to PE or for long term holds. In order to do that, they should focus on how the company is managed and the culture of the organization. Wilson agrees and notes that this will be a key factor in making a successful deal
