This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Maurissa Bell. The two talk about the private equity market, and how Clairvest builds strategically significant businesses and helps them to scale.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What drove her into the Mergers & Acquisitions space

  • What Clairvest does to build strategically significant businesses, and how they support them in their growth

  • How her journey brought her into a private equity company

  • How her affinity for problem solving has expanded her knowledge base and assisted her in structuring businesses to help them scale

  • Why does partnering with private equity companies get such a bad wrap

  • How many jobs Clairvest has created, and the proven profitability that they offer to  businesses

  • Why there is such benefit for businesses in having financial partners

  • What the golden resource is, and the importance of consistently expanding it

  • Why a business should “date” its investors

Maurissa joined Clairvest in 2022 and is involved in all areas of the investment process. Prior to joining, Maurissa was an executive at George Weston Limited, Canada’s largest food and drug retailer, REIT and provider of financial services. Maurissa also held various roles in investment and corporate banking where she assisted companies achieving their growth objectives through mergers and acquisitions, as well as debt and equity financing. Maurissa is a Chartered Accountant (CPA, CA) and holds a Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies, with a specialization in Finance from the University of Western Ontario.
