Hey all, it’s my first time managing an IMO, so I am heading up standing the office up, getting everyone on board, coming up with the day 0, 1, 100 plan, etc. Any advice from someone who does this stuff day in and out? Parthenon, DDV, etc.

I hate watch flippers but what’s the best place to offload a brand new dj? I want a Daytona and my AD said I need some purchase history. So bought whatever he had (blue dj 36. Oyster and not fluted) so have no interest in it. Will any sort of watch reseller be my best bet for speed purposes?

I need your all’s advice. I lead a two person CorpDev and strategy team at a PE backed company. Current TC is $216K + options that could be worth $300-600K+ in a few years. Receiving potential offers of TC for $250K-275K but without options. I live in a low cost city, like the company / industry and team, and have great WLB, autonomy and flexibility. I’ve also only been in this role for 5 months (we’re not an acquisitive company; I was brought on to build the M&A function). Continued below…
