About:

Cameron Bishop brings more than 40 years of executive-level business experience to his role as one of Raincatcher’s Managing Directors. He has overseen a broad array of business scenarios involving start-ups, product line extensions, organic growth, international business, mergers & acquisitions (M&A), deal integrations, business reorganizations, and digital transformations. 

In his early career, Cam began as a copywriter for a $7 million company. Through his determination and dedication to the bigger picture, he rose through the ranks to become its CEO, and he helped grow that company to $400 million in revenue and $100 million in EBITDA profits, expanding it to more than 2,000 employees located in 23 U.S. cities and across several countries. From there, he launched Ascend Media, a startup backed by J.P. Morgan Chase Bank’s $6 billion private equity fund that began on his kitchen table. In just three years, Cam built a management team that developed strategy and installed the systems and processes needed to create a successful infrastructure for a $120MM company with 500 employees based in 7 cities. Cam found himself moving onto another company next, where he served as a partner in a consulting firm specializing in exit and transition planning. He led a business turnaround and digital transformation under contract for the board of directors of SkillPath Seminars, a $60 million 501c3 company. SkillPath is one of the nation’s largest and most successful management and leadership development training companies.  His role as CEO with this company was to introduce a new strategy, brand the company, recruit new talent, reduce costs, improve business processes, introduce technology from data science to web functionality and create a compelling social media presence through aggressive thought leadership programs.

Cam’s real passion remains in M&A. Over the years he has executed 40 buys-side and 20+ sell-side deals with enterprise value over $500 million. Throughout his experience, he came to understand that many business owners are improperly represented by brokers, which resulted in them leaving their businesses with less value than they should have. 

Cam has a true passion for helping business owners achieve their financial goals with proper support and representation. He is thrilled to have an opportunity to do this each and every day with Raincatcher as a Managing Director. In his spare time, Cam has authored two books, Head Noise…Perspective and Tales from the Executive Suite and Onward and Upward…Motivational Advice for Career Success. 

Cameron is a member of the Forbes Magazine Human Resource Council as well as a member of the Kansas City Business Journal Business Council. He is also a volunteer mentor for HEMP (Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program) in conjunction with the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Business. In addition, he serves as President of the Mission Reserve Homes Association Board of Directors.
