We are professionals that are passionate about the transportation and logistics industry, as well as working with entrepreneurs to achieve outstanding outcomes. BGSA founder and Managing Partner, Ben Gordon, grew up in the industry and traces his transportation roots back five generations.
In 1948, Ben’s grandfather, Eugene Ribakoff, founded 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, BGSA stands alone as the only investment banking firm founded on the premise that we understand supply chain entrepreneurs, because we come from the same stock. This deep rooted heritage provides a foundation for us to connect with our entrepreneurial clients in the transportation and logistics space. 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 investment banking for the supply chain sector.
