    Laura Kevghas, President – Seed to Harvest LLC

    Laura’s career in M&A has spanned both sides of the negotiating table, with 20 years working as an M&A advisor for business owners who are selling their company, and 10 years in the middle of her career working as the Director of Corporate Development for a private equity-owned B2B media company, where Laura ran around the world spending other people’s money to acquire tradeshows, conferences, magazines and websites. Sitting on both sides of the table has given Laura a unique competency in understanding how buyers approach acquisitions and how best to position her sell-side clients to be attractive acquisition candidates.

    Over the course of her career, Laura has completed more than 60 transactions, ranging from less than $1 million to more than $200 million in deal value. Her area of highest expertise is in selling small businesses to large strategic acquirers in industries as diverse as business services, manufacturing and technology. She is resourceful in identifying and reaching prospective buyers and employs a dogged determination to get transactions completed that exceed her client’s expectations.

    Laura holds an MBA and BS from Bentley’s McCallum School of Business. Laura is past-President of the New England chapter of the Exit Planning Exchange, and a member of The Boston Club. Laura is a frequent writer, speaker and presenter on M&A topics. Laura lives in Westford, Massachusetts with her husband.
