Start a new lucrative career and get off the C-Suite merry-go-round. Join the Corum team. As one recently retired dealmaker said, “The ultimate job— I only wish I had found Corum earlier”.
Tech M&A is exploding, and the Corum Group is rated the “most active” tech investment bank in the world. The reason is simple — we source more software opportunities than anyone through the industry’s largest research and education operation, and we are growing!
The selection criteria for our Tech M&A Dealmaker position is extremely specific, which is why we have such an exceptional team.
We are currently seeking former Software & IT CEOs who have built and sold their own company to help fellow tech entrepreneurs sell. Former CEOs, like you, who have sales experience and negotiation skills, domain expertise and enjoy mentoring tech entrepreneurs in the successful sale of their company. Your expertise is vital because you understand how detailed, difficult, and sometimes emotionally trying it can be to successfully sell your company.
You will be supported by global teams of five on each engagement; seasoned experts in research, writing and valuations, working through our 8-step professional process — from preparation to contact, to negotiation and close. It is designed to generate multiple offers and is hands down the most successful process in the industry. No one has sold more privately held software, IT, or related technology companies than Corum Group. No one.
— Convert prospects (from 10,000s of leads generated by Corum’s Marketing Team) to clients, developing relationships and selling “The Corum Process: 8 Steps to an Optimal M&A Outcome” via phone, email, personal meets, etc.
— Work as the conduit between clients (tech entrepreneurs); potential buyers; Corum research, marketing, and client services to guide the engagement process from end-to-end: preparation, research, contact, discovery, negotiation, due diligence, closing, and integration.
— Serve as a tech M&A educator, regularly presenting at hundreds of educational conferences, webinars and podcasts produced by Corum Group and its affiliate organizations.
Required Qualifications (Tech M&A Dealmaker)
— You must have built and successfully sold (through a formal M&A process) at least one software, IT or related technology company. (And multiple exits is even better.)
- Solid sales experience and an “active sales mentality” is a must. Calling on the phone, emailing, follow-up and waiting.
— Excellent public speaking skills.
— Excellent communication skills.
— Incredible skills in organization and time management.
— Being a good “storyteller” is a necessary. You must convey value through more than just “dry financials and spreadsheets.”
— A “hunter” mentality. You need to be comfortable converting prospects to clients, running multiple deals, and mentoring through educational events concurrently. This is an extremely fast-paced business.
— MBA is a bonus, but not required.
