Jody E. Bacqué - President
Jody E. Bacqué brings 25 years of business acumen to his role as President of M&E Partners, having worked most recently as Senior Vice President of Asset Sales with Hilco Industrial, LLC. Jody accumulated business expertise anchored in the sourcing and structuring of opportunities primarily in the Energy, Construction and Transportation segments. He executed initiatives designed to enhance visibility for companies looking to maximize their return on under-utilized assets. In his brief history at Hilco Industrial, he secured some of the highest profile deals and expanded the sector footprint to include Marine, Seismic, Sub-Sea Well Intervention, and Mining.
Having a keen understanding of the value of business assets, both tangible and intangible, has allowed Jody to excel in capital asset acquisition and disposition. He has specific expertise in structuring customized transactions to maximize value through private treaty sales, auction platforms, or principal purchases. Since the clientele served is broadly diverse, including private equity firms, hedge funds, lenders, trustees, and receivers, it requires an intimate knowledge of each of those industries, and their respective outlets for tangible returns. Jody has established powerful relationships with business leaders, strategic operators, and end-users in various sectors on a global basis. Each of these industry experts provides critical insight for assets such as machinery and equipment, industrial inventory, manufacturing, real estate, consumer products, accounts receivable, and intellectual properties.
