Cameron Bishop

Managing Director - Midwest

Cam has over 40 years of executive-level business experience covering a broad array of business scenarios involving start-ups, product line extensions, organic growth, international business, mergers & acquisitions, deal integrations as well as business reorganization and digital transformation. In his early career, he began as a copywriter for a $7 million company and rose through the ranks to serve as CEO for this same company that grew to $400 million in revenue and $100 million in EBITDA profits with 2000 employees located in 23 U.S. cities and several foreign countries. From there, he launched a company in partnership with JP Morgan Chase Bank's Private Equity group that grew from $0 to $120 million in under 4 years.

He has since served as a partner in a consulting firm specializing in exit and transition planning and led a business turnaround and digital transformation under contract for the board of directors of a $60 million 501c3 company. But, his real passion remains in M&A since, over the years, he has executed 40 buys-side and 20+ sell-side deals and has seen many business owners who were improperly represented which resulted in them leaving their businesses with less value than they should have. He has a passion for helping business owners achieve their financial goals with proper support and representation, so he is thrilled to have an opportunity to do this each and every day with Raincatcher.

Cameron Bishop of Raincatcher is a registered representative offering securities and investment banking services through Britehorn Securities, a registered broker-dealer (member FINRA/SIPC).
