NorthBridge Business Advisors


NorthBridge was founded by Jack Cox, who brings over 35 years of business and management experience critical to assisting others in the business ownership and transfer process. During his corporate career, he served in senior finance and operation roles in multiple industries, including large consumer electronics distributors, real estate, insurance and franchise companies as well as a medical device start up. He began his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers and worked in both the United States and Australia.

During his career, he has supported significant business growth, by restructuring operations, consolidating and opening warehouses and positioning the company for growth. He has also reduced expenses in order to preserve the bottom line. He brings a unique perspective to the business transfer process since he knows what companies need to do and when it needs to be done before going to market the business.

Jack now serves business owners and their stakeholders with growth strategies, valuations, M&A advisory services and exit planning consulting. He has worked both independently and in coordination with other business brokers and investment banking firms on sell and buy side transactions.

Jack is a Certified Public Accountant, Certified Merger & Acquisition Advisor (CM&AA), Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA), an Accredited Business Intermediary and holds a Master’s in Business, a post graduate Certificate in Finance, is a Certified Business Broker, and is a licensed realtor.
