Watch Interview

Birmingham, Alabama  – The World Show and Bob Scully have selected from amongst numerous interviews, the special with Bud Kirchner, of Kirchner Private Capital Group, for its annual Holiday Edition and named Bud as the “Interview of the Year”.

The program will be released in syndication, across America, on over 200 public TV stations, in mid-December.

Bob Scully commented on the editorial team’s choice:  “Bud Kirchner, who is a two-time Entrepreneur of the Year, is also an experienced private equity investor credited with having a remarkable golden touch.  Bud has dedicated his career to helping companies and investors achieve their potential by parachuting in his management team to tighten operations and generate momentum and bringing in his transaction team to create liquidity events. Yet he may well have found his most satisfying work in social entrepreneurship, developing the Christopher Douglas Hidden Angel Foundation in memory of his son.  It offers Multi-Sensory Environments (MSEs) so that disabled individuals can stimulate brain activity and better engage with the world around them. Through Kirchner’s efforts, we see how the entrepreneurial spirit pays dividends in so many more ways than just what appears on the balance sheet.”

“I am honored that my interview has received this recognition. I enjoyed my interview with Bob and am pleased that our unique approach to working with mid market companies has garnered this attention. I am very proud of our 25-year corporate history and the impact our foundation has had on the lives of individuals with special needs”, remarked Bud.
