Blythe Announces Growth Advisory Services: Todd Brumley to Lead Practice

It’s my great pleasure to announce that Blythe Global Advisors is adding Growth Advisory Services to its comprehensive set of solutions and services. I’m especially pleased to announce that Todd Brumley, a veteran member of BlytheTeamSM, will head this new practice.

Todd brings tremendous knowledge and experience to BlytheTeamSM in the growth advisory arena having been both a provider and a recipient of these services over his 38-year career. Todd has managed accounting, operations and finance as well as consulted for several nascent companies and his own companies. He also has considerable experience as a middle-market banker, lending to companies in that tier. Growth requires capital. As a former lender and borrower, Todd knows the business of raising capital from every perspective and from every stage of a company’s lifecycle. His first-hand experience in navigating growth is a major benefit to BGA’s clients.


BGA’s Growth Advisory Services

Whether a business is a successful startup or in a hyper-growth phase or an established organization, it will need outside help at some point – to build out infrastructure; upgrade competencies; attract and retain talent; go public; enact a sale, merger or acquisition; etc. Any company that has faced these hurdles knows that a successful transition to the next level requires expertise and capacity not always resident inside the organization – experts who know what’s required, how to do it most efficiently and have the resources to get it done. In addition, for most companies starting, emerging or making quantum leaps, it’s a well-known fact that the availability and cost of capital needed to fund such growth is limited, expensive and often dilutive.

Our aim in establishing a growth advisory practice is twofold: First, to apply our deep BlytheTeamSM experience across the Big Four, financial, corporate and entrepreneurial worlds to help companies grow and be better positioned to reach their strategic goals. Second, to help companies find the right financing for whatever the point in their growth and then help them use that money as wisely and profitably as possible.

In terms of helping companies grow and reach strategic goals, we leverage our broad and deep experience across diverse industries and diverse environments to advise on areas of improvement aligned to priorities. Our goal is always to add sustaining value by leaving behind a footprint that includes knowledge transfer, implementation of best practices, and infrastructure and process improvements that anticipate and can support growth.

When senior financing is needed, Blythe Global Advisors is an excellent resource – as it has been already for a variety of companies. We always act on behalf of our client borrowers as their advocate. We do not broker for any lender nor do we work on their behalf when negotiating terms. We support funding needs up to $25 million. Consider Todd to be your trusted growth advisor.
