Thomas Bonney

Founder & Managing Director

Tom has an impressive track record in the M&A world, with more than 30 years of experience in strategy, finance, operations, technology, and business development. He brings an informed, comprehensive level of expertise to all client engagements and is a recognized expert on middle market operations, private equity, business transformations, M&A, and talent development.

When he’s not at CMF, Tom enjoys spending time with his two young sons, listening to 70s & 80s music, and reading up on American history. He also has a keen affinity for geese and their flying formations. True story about Tom: he crossed Checkpoint Charlie at the Berlin Wall in 1987, and again in 1992, unobstructed by the Berlin Wall.
