Mad River Associates
Prior to joining MRA in 2021, Andy served in executive, advisory and advocacy positions for over 30 years. He began his career as a litigation attorney in Boston, with big firm experience at Nutter, McClennen & Fish and small firm experience at Donnelly, Conroy & Gelhaar. He subsequently moved in-house as the first general counsel for a client’s family-owned business, joining Epoxy Technology, Inc. – a specialty adhesives manufacturer for high technology/microelectronics applications – in 1998. Over the next 20+ years, Andy transitioned from general counsel to general manager/COO, and ultimately, to president. He filled several roles over the lifespan of the company, and gained experienced as both Seller and Buyer. Andy worked closely for years with Epoxy’s family ownership to improve all aspects of the business and its employees. Following the founder’s death, he guided the family and the company through a sales process – choosing attorneys, bankers and brokers; evaluating bids and buyer presentations; due diligence and closing. Andy remained post-sale under P/E ownership for two years, transitioning again to new strategies, methods and approaches, as well as pursuing multiple new acquisitions.
