The world of business development is filled with as many hurdles and deal-breakers as there are opportunities. Throughout my career, I’ve worked on many business development projects with many BD professionals in some of the largest organizations in the world. It’s immensely valuable when you have someone on your side that gives you a true competitive advantage in the process. That’s why I’m strongly endorsing Jim Barton as someone who can help any organization win in the world of BD.  

I’ve worked with Jim Barton on many deals, including numerous small, early-stage technology acquisitions, licensing arrangements and alliances, all the way to larger, organizational, strategic bolt-on acquisitions. He has successfully delivered incredible value to our former organization through his knowledge of the marketplace, the business development process, and his ability to drive insight and understanding on the most critical drivers of success.  Jim’s track record is exemplary. He has a strong financial background and a vast relationship network, which are valuable assets in the BD world. I have found his counsel and leadership to be the difference-maker in our past successes.
