At Ivertex Capital, we understand that you have worked hard and are proud of the team and the company you have built. Like you, we want to see it continue to be successful, even as you begin to relinquish some of your responsibilities. Now that you have decided it is time to pass the baton, who will you hand it to?
Ivertex Capital can help. We look to purchase light manufacturing or distribution businesses from owners that do not have a succession plan. We know this transition is important to you and, if willing, we encourage you to stay involved as key leadership, a board member or a consultant.
Joe Williams is the Founder and President of Ivertex Capital located in Cleveland, Ohio. His expertise and favorite part of his work is identifying and developing talent.
Prior to founding Ivertex Capital, Joe was President & CEO of The Dunstone Company, a manufacturer of heat shrinkable films for the aerospace composite industry, from 2005 to 2017. Joe and his partners acquired the company from an owner interested in seeing his key employees remain in place and the business remain in Charlotte, NC. During his 12 years of leadership, the team at Dunstone quadrupled the sales of the company, exceeding the previous owner's expectations.

Joe graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1996. In 1997, he returned to Electrolock where he had the opportunity to work in almost every role in the business including outside technical sales, product and process development, accounting, operations manager, and VP of Sales. Concurrent to working at Electrolock, Joe completed his Masters in Business Administration from the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University.
