MICHAEL L ATKINSON
Over 25 years of experience in corporate development and corporate finance as entrepreneur, restaurateur and investment banker, beginning at Shearson Lehman Bros. in New York City in 1985.
As an investment banker, I have participated in over 150 advisory assignments in a wide array of industries including technology, Internet, food, beverage, restaurants, retail, entertainment and communications.
As an entrepreneur, I have started several companies in the consumer Internet, social media, restaurant and digital media industries.
As a manager, I have held C-level positions at restaurant and consumer-facing Internet companies.
In 2007, I founded fohboh.com, a leading B2B social network, social web technology and digital media company for the foodservice industry. FohBoh’s content, technology and services play a vital role in facilitating decision-making, deal flow, benchmarking and social web analysis for foodservice industry stakeholders. FohBoh has changed the restaurant, technology and information industry by creating a new, integrated social-business platform and service model for the global foodservice industry.
