Early Culture Integration for a Healthy Merger

Early Culture Integration for a Healthy Merger

Dr. Curtis Odom

Certified Merger and Acquisition Advisor

A company’s culture is the mindset about the beliefs, attitudes and actions that a company maintains to satisfy its customers while ensuring the success of its people and the organization as a whole. In a merger, however, the corporate culture of one organization may not reflect that of its acquiring company although each is committed to the success of a deal that is good for both the sell- and the buy-side companies. Our guest on this episode, Dr. Curtis Odom, Corporate LiveWire’s Post-Merger Integration Advisor of the Year in 2016, emphasizes how important early cultural integration is to the long-term success of a sale or merger.
