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.

If you are blessed enough to have Adam choose to support you on your journey, don’t hesitate to act.

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.

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.
