- Jim WilsonFounder & CEOWilson ElectronicsOne of the things that mattered the most was how my equity partner would treat the company and my team after the investment. Sorenson not only helped to accelerate our growth, but they did so with great care and respect for the legacy that I had created."
Wilson Electronics is the leader in cell phone booster technology. The company grew out of the need to stay in touch in weak cell coverage areas on the road, at home, or in the office. Wilson grew from a startup in radio frequency (RF) antenna technology to become the largest booster company in the industry. As Wilson Electronics grew and the founder approached retirement, he began to think how he might monetize what he had taken years to build, but he still wanted to participate in the upside from the future growth he envisioned. In Sorenson Capital, he found a partner that helped him do both.
Sorenson Capital provided the desired liquidity, participated on the board, and provided guidance and management support, while the founder retained meaningful ownership for the upside. Sorenson helped Wilson focus its strategy, install sophisticated financial systems, improve operational processes, and execute a growth strategy.
