Dear Ms. Richardson,
I recently positioned TECH Companies for sale, formulated the structure of the transaction, supervised due diligence, and managed TECH's operations during the sale to Century Business, Inc. (NADDAQ: CBIZ), an international services organization with revenues in excess of $400 million. Although I've been retained as President, I desire to continue to enjoy "The Thrill of the Hunt" in locating, acquiring, and building high technology organizations. I'm writing to you in the event that you are working on a search for the following position:
COO, strong number two, strategic partner for President/CEO. Although I'm currently President/CEO of TECH Companies, I'm not seeking a CEO position. I operate best in the number two position in an organization, and that's my goal.
Duties and Responsibilities
General manager and member of senior management team.Oversee sales/marketing, finance and operations. Formulate and implement corporate strategy for pursuing major business opportunities. Develop strategic alliances.
Small-to-medium size technology-driven company with strong
growth/acquisition goals. Would consider any technology-related industry,
including biotech, computers and IT, science, medical device manufacturing.
Have traveled and relocated extensively, so willing to relocate. Prefer small towns of population less than 500,000 or suburbs of major metropolitan areas.
Received cash payout on sale of company. Recent compensation has been in the low $200s. Will negotiate compensation and incentives. Equity position would be especially attractive.
I enjoy the challenge of creating, building and growing a professional organization. Opportunities and potential are of paramount importance. I would be pleased to discuss with you and your client how I would quickly duplicate my past successes. I'll call your office in the next few days to schedule a brief 10-15 minute phone call.
With best regards,
Michael W. O'Halloran
