Tom Majcher

Trusted advisor to businesses, families and entrepreneurs.

Tom Majcher’s relentless pursuit of results has created successful exit opportunities for over 100 business owners. His knowledge of what works in the real world has been forged on the front lines both as a trusted advisor to scores of companies and as an owner of four companies. His winning moves and rigorous execution have pulled off breakthrough results even when all odds were against him.

Tom learned exit planning and execution on the front lines as an executive for a fifth-generation family business with revenues of $700 million. He changed the game for this 115 year-old family business dealing with contentious family relationships, an obsolete strategy, entrenched management mindsets and cut throat competitors by executing a plan that delivered more than $200 million of hidden value and sale of the company to meet shareholder objectives.

Tom’s got a wealth of real-world experience he now makes available to clients in situations where the stakes are high and failure is not an option.

  • As an executive of a major international company Tom led a special team that was successful in devising a plan and realizing $2 billion from assets that otherwise would have been written off.
  • During the recent recession he was a partner in a business competing in some of the most economically sensitive markets of the economy. In three years revenues quadrupled to $24 million, the company’s value increased 4X and it was sold to a private equity group.
  • With private investors Tom led a greenfield and brownfield development of an environmental services business. This company received operating permits in by satisfying all environmental requirements and building relationships with opposition groups. The company was later sold to a major public company.

An active participant in the middle-market, Tom is a founding member and Vice President of the Association for Corporate Growth, Kentucky Chapter. He is an active member of the BEI Network of Exit Planners, the country’s leading organization of exit planning professionals. He frequently speaks on the importance of growing business value prior to exit and how to plan and execute business transitions.

Tom has BS and MS degrees from Penn State and is a member of the Varsity S letter-man club. He is an avid family man, cyclist and golfer. Recently, he coached the Franklin County High School Lady Flyers golf team to two appearances in the State High School Golf Championships. Tom shares his passion for cycling as a ride leader for the Bluegrass Cycling Club where he can be found gasping for air while on long rides in the countryside. Or, he’s waist deep in the nearest stream with his fly rod, stalking elusive brook trout and small-mouth bass.
