We are pleased to welcome Scott Oakford and look forward to hearing his story of Hamilton Robinson’s success of turning around the Connecticut-based business of Davis-Standard.

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) October 01, 2012

How do you engineer a turnaround story in a Connecticut manufacturing company? Scott I. Oakford, Managing Partner of Stamford-based Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners, will explain how at the October meeting of the Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth, the premier global association for professionals involved in corporate growth, corporate development, and mergers and acquisitions for mid to large companies. The meeting will take place 7:30 – 9:30 am at the Stamford Marriott on Friday, October 5.

ACG CT President Karin (McKittrick) Kovacic said, “We are pleased to welcome Scott Oakford and look forward to hearing his story of Hamilton Robinson’s success of turning around the Connecticut-based business of Davis-Standard. As an organization focused on the economic health of Connecticut, it is always exciting to hear of local investors and local businesses teaming up with another.”

Mr. Oakford added, “The Davis-Standard story illustrates that U.S.-based manufacturers can survive and thrive in a global economy through a combination of culture change, lean operations, and add-on acquisitions that fuel growth. Today, Davis-Standard does business in Europe and Asia as well as the U.S.”
