The purpose of NorthBridge Business Advisors is to serve small to medium sized business owners to optimize the value of the business for the long term or move towards a successful transition with a transferable business that considers the needs of the owner, the owner’s family, the employees, customers, and other stakeholders.
Our vision is evident in our motto of “Execution with Integrity”. We are competent, professional and operate with unquestioned ethics with everyone we serve and interact with.
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. He has 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 profitability.
On the business transaction side, Jack has seen situations where business owners engaged legal counsel and accountants for assistance in selling the business, but there was a glaring gap since no one was managing the process from preparation to conclusion. You can call that person a business broker, M&A advisor or investment banker, Jack saw how transactions were collapsing without someone in this role. Whether the owner is looking to grow the business, prepare the business for sale or sell the business, Jack is well suited to serve the small to medium size business population.
Jack is a Certified Public Accountant, holds a Master’s in Business, a post graduate Certificate in Finance, is a Certified Exit Planning Advisor®, Certified Business Broker, an Accredited Business Intermediary and a licensed realtor. Jack is a member of the International Business Brokers Association and the American Business Brokers Association.
Jack is connected to the communities he serves and is a member of the Finance Council for the Diocese of Paterson, the Board of Adjustment for the Borough of Morris Plains, NJ and is President of the Board of Trustees for Employment Horizons. He was previously recognized as the Volunteer of the Year in his hometown of Morris Plains, NJ.
