We are investment professionals that love logistics and technology. BGSA founder Ben Gordon grew up in transportation and traces his supply chain roots back five generations. Entrepreneurship is in our blood, and we are passionate about the values and principles of helping founders succeed.
In 1948, Ben’s grandfather, Eugene Ribakoff, started AMI, one of the leading truck leasing, dedicated contract carriage, and logistics providers in the Northeast. AMI was in fact preceded by another family transportation business. In 1903, Ben’s great-great grandfather founded Morganstern Express, a horse-and-buggy company based in New York. Hence, in 1999, when Ben founded 3PLex, a web-based transportation management system for the logistics sector, he was not just pursuing a vision, but also carrying on a long-standing family tradition.
Today, nearly two decades after Ben Gordon founded BGSA, the investment banking firm stands alone as the only M&A advisory services firm founded on the premise that we understand supply chain entrepreneurs, because we come from the same stock. These deep rooted values provide a foundation for us to connect with our entrepreneurial clients in the transportation and logistics space. We have a hard-earned reputation as experts in supply chain. Our experience and track record reflects these values. We believe that every entrepreneur faces different challenges, and we are confident in our ability to help great companies maximize their value with our unique focus on strategy-led M&A advisory services for the supply chain sector.
