Managing Partner, Kaho Partners
We were searching for a board member who could both coach our management team and advise the board on best practices for successful buy-and-builds. We thought it would be difficult to find someone like that — and then we met Adam. He is a true guru who has “been there, done that” when it comes to executing a programmatic M&A strategy. But more than that, Adam is accessible, knowledgeable, down to earth and a fantastic sounding board. He is an active participant on our board who rolls up his sleeves to help us get things done.
Adam Coffey serves on the board of Addtronics, a buy-and-build in the industrial robotics automation industry backed by private equity firm Kaho Partners. In that role, he provides advice on strategy, M&A negotiations and acquisition diligence. In addition, he has been indispensable in helping to assemble a powerhouse holding company team and in forging successful relationships with owners. With more than 300 team members and over $100 million in transactions completed, Kaho Partners is exclusively focused on building exceptional niche manufacturing and industrial technology businesses.
CEO, Unlimited Technology, Inc.
When you’re building a business, you want to effectively scale as quickly as possible. Adam has been where we are many times in his long and successful career, so we knew we could learn from him — what works, what to avoid and what challenges lie ahead. With his industry experience and operator’s mindset, he helped our executive team divide and conquer, and he knew how to put management in their proper “swim lanes” to create maximum efficiency.
In his advisory role with Unlimited Technology, Adam brings a seasoned approach and fresh perspective on business growth and scalability to the company’s executive team. With headquarters in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, Unlimited Technology is an end-to-end technology solution provider for businesses throughout the United States.
Chief Growth Officer and Board Member at E78 Partners
Adam has been a wonderful addition to E78 Partners as an executive advisor. He understood our business instantaneously and started adding value from Day One. From the moment we met, I knew he would be invaluable to our firm and our clients. For instance, a few months into our relationship, we collaborated on an acquisition Adam had identified, and it has been a game changer for our firm. If you are blessed enough to have Adam choose to support you on your journey, don’t hesitate to act.
As an executive advisor at E78 Partners, Adam is a brand ambassador who helps to grow the firm organically and through M&A. Based in Oak Brook, Illinois, E78 Partners delivers tailored accounting, finance and technology solutions that reduce risk and drive value creation for private equity firms, portfolio companies and private corporations.
Founder & CEO, Netsurit
Our guiding principle at Netsurit is “Supporting the dreams of the doers,” and Adam has certainly done that for us. Among his many valuable contributions, he has helped us define the pillars of our strategy, take our macro strategic thinking to a new level and understand the talent-to-value approach. Beyond his incredible experience and knowledge, though, he is an insanely responsive professional with an incredible service orientation.

Founder & CEO, Fire Dawgs Inc.
Adam’s experience leading and driving the growth of companies speaks for itself, so when you have the opportunity to learn from an experienced leader and businessman with his track record, you listen. That alone has been incredibly rewarding. It has opened doors for me and my business, both from a mindset perspective and in terms of opportunities for business growth. Even before I met Adam, I got fired up reading his bestselling books, The Private Equity Playbook and The Exit Strategy Playbook. He so clearly lays out a framework that is easy to understand, even though the subject matter is complex. It changes the paradigm and the way you think. After reading his books, I wanted to learn more and was excited when I discovered he also does seminars, advising and consulting.
Owner, Darwin German Real Estate Investments
Adam outlined the path for accelerated growth for our company. He opened my eyes to opportunities I had not thought of, reinforced my existing plans and motivated me toward a position of rapid and controlled growth well into the future. I loved that Adam said he owns two specific responsibilities for each company he works with: strategy and growth, and corporate culture. The latter was my big ah-ha moment with Adam. He illustrated the critical importance of corporate culture in the long-term success of a company. As a result, I changed the role of one of my top executives who was great at performance but didn’t embody my vision of corporate culture for my company.
Senior Managing Partner, Capital Wealth ROI
Working with Adam has been a revelation. His strategic insights and visionary thinking have guided me through the complexities of the business landscape, propelling my growth in ways I couldn’t have imagined. From the beginning, Adam demonstrated an innate understanding of my business and my industry, uncovering untapped opportunities I had overlooked for years. It was then that I knew collaborating with Adam would be a game changer for Capital Wealth ROI for many years to come. I wholeheartedly recommend Adam to other entrepreneurs and businesses who are ready to scale and grow.

COO, Assessments 24x7
Adam has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team. He has guided us through a challenging business acquisition, helped us revamp our operations and showed us the best way to scale. In a very short amount of time, Adam has helped us grow our revenue and become more efficient and focused on our goals. Not only did we grow as a company, but I also grew personally with everything I have learned from my time with him. I am very grateful for Adam’s help, and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to grow their business.
The majority shareholder of Assessments 24×7 — a global leader in assessment technology — turned to Adam Coffey to help him maximize the value of his company as he plans his exit.

— Joe (Yossi) Berko
From the moment I read Adam’s book (The Private Equity Playbook) and saw him speak, I was inspired. Being mentored by Adam has encouraged me to think much more grandly, to step up to the plate and create much bigger relationships that will take everything I do to a whole new scale. I welcome bigger challenges now and embrace opportunities I might otherwise overlook.
