I am new to search and looking to connect with current searchers, former searchers, and search investors. At this point, I am looking to get educated, gain perspective, and make connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As for my background, I spent 3 years in consulting, b-school, 13 years in IB (LMM M&A). My areas of focus for search are:

- Southeast
- Mid-Atlantic
- Transportation & Logistics
- Manufacturing
- Services: Industrial, B2B, Tech-Enabled

I am potentially partnering with an operator (T&L), so any perspective on search with partners would be an added bonus. Please message me if you are interested in connecting. Thanks in advance for any help!
