Bruce shares his “Why” in the video below


Bruce has a successful track record of designing, planning and delivering complex transformation programs for Fortune 500, Mid-Market and Private Equity firms focused on Software, Manufacturing, Consumer Products, and Financial Services.  

For over 25 years Bruce has built a reputation of partnering with his clients to unlock and deliver value. He does so by integrating new thinking, capabilities and platforms into the teams of his clients.  His philosophy for success anchors on his belief that it is not enough to just deliver a program or initiative as designed and expected.  Rather, a true client partner must engage, coach, and develop leadership along the journey ensuring they are ready to own and deliver the expected results and long-term value. 

Prior to co-founding Exactus Advisors, Bruce acted in leadership roles at Liberty Advisor Group, Rubicon Technology RBCN (co-founder), and Diamond Management & Technology. Bruce lives in Lake Forest, IL with his wife and two children. His passions include spending time with his family, travel, fishing, and racquet sports. Always looking for new challenges, he took up competitive BBQ and achieved several top awards at the Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Competition. 

Client Testimonial

“I was very impressed that Bruce had done something entrepreneurial and took it public and here he was ready to roll up his sleeves. He loves what he does, and he has a great work ethic. In the end, Bruce saved us close to $4 million. I don’t think that would have been possible with a less experienced consultant.”
