NEW MEMBER INTRO
I recently joined Searchfunder and am excited about this platform. When I was first introduced to the Search Fund space, my initial intent was to invest in deals from self-funded searchers - however, while I'm still interested in making selective investments, I've opted for a more entrepreneurial approach and am actively looking for a business to buy and operate. I'm mostly industry agnostic, with a geographical preference for companies in Georgia, Virginia, and/or Montana. Seeking businesses with EBITDA of $400k-$1.5M. Looking forward to connecting with like-minded searchers and investors!
A little about me:
Bingham is an investment executive and entrepreneur, as well as an author and philanthropist. He is the Managing Partner at Jamison Retirement, a Contributor for Forbes Investing and Seeking Alpha, and an Angel Investor with the Charlottesville Angel Network.
Bingham has spent the past 15 years as an investment professional in Charlottesville, VA, advising clients on portfolio construction, tax and estate planning, risk management strategies, mineral rights ownership, oil and gas royalties management, and strategic charitable giving initiatives. Prior to founding Jamison Retirement in 2019, Bingham served family clients as an Investment Advisor Representative with several Virginia-based multi-family offices - he was a Principal with Signature Family Wealth Advisors, then the President of Qaim Wealth Advisors, and most recently a Wealth Manager at Manchester Capital Management. Bingham began his finance career as an Investment Analyst at Investure, an outsourced investment office for endowments and foundations, where he conducted due diligence and manager selection on the Private Equity and Hedge Fund teams.
Compelled to serve in the wake of 9/11, Bingham joined the Marine Corps. In 2003, he represented Team USA for the International Military Pentathlon in Europe. Following his training as a Counterintelligence Officer, Bingham commanded Human Intelligence Exploitation Teams (HETs) during combat operations in Al Qaim and Fallujah, Iraq. After the Marines, he participated in the U.S. Intelligence Community's global efforts to disrupt terrorism financing.
Bingham speaks and writes about his wartime experience - he has been a keynote speaker at venues across central Virginia and Georgia, and has published over two-dozen articles as a Contributor for TIME Magazine, The Daily Beast, The Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Daily Progress, and elsewhere. He is the Co-Founder and Chairman of Warrior Healing Campaign, serves on the board of the Richmond Fisher House & Foundation, and recently summited Mt. Kilimanjaro as a member of The Chris Long Foundation's Waterboys team.
A native of Atlanta, Bingham graduated from the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce, earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation from the CFA Institute, and remains a regular fixture (alongside his two orange-clad children) at most Wahoo sporting events.
