Supporting the Lakeshore Foundation and its Sports Science & Performance Center
Jacksonville Fl and Birmingham AL – 28 November 2023 – Kirchner Group, a values-based boutique advisory, operational support, and asset management firm, today announced it will serve as an advisor to the Birmingham, Alabama based Lakeshore Foundation. Kirchner will work to solicit, structure, negotiate and execute collaboration agreements with third parties that leverage the resources and expertise of the Lakeshore Foundation with a focus on its new Sports Science & Performance Center. These third parties may include private sector companies, academic institutions and foundation/not for profit partners. Kirchner will work to leverage the Foundation’s current assets to simultaneously generate new resources, grow its societal impact, and expand the breadth and depth of its partnerships.
Kirchner was chosen by Lakeshore given its extensive international network, decades of expertise in intellectual property-based transactions and track record of enterprise development with a vast array of clients. In addition, the firm has a multifaceted commitment to creating positive social impact and a deep multifaceted involvement enriching the lives of individuals with disabilities.
Lakeshore Foundation has a mission to provide opportunities for individuals with a disability to live a healthy lifestyle through physical activity, research, advocacy and health promotion. Lakeshore’s Sports Science & Performance Center is a leader in adapted and disability sports with the expertise to provide comprehensive sports performance services to individuals and teams and advance sports science research.
Kirchner Group was founded in 1985 as a boutique, traditional merchant bank, and today operates various subsidiaries, providing advisory services (M&A, assessments, diligence, enterprise development, IP commercialization) and operational support (performance improvement, interim management, workouts, turnarounds) as well as asset management (private asset and fund optimization) – all leveraging a proprietary approach that dovetails domain and process expertise.
As a firm with a long track record of “earning and returning” and multifaceted expertise in business, Kirchner Group is proud to have worked with game-changing companies and technologies in areas such as immunotherapy, gene-writing, neurodegenerative diseases, saltwater agriculture and regenerative agriculture. Kirchner Group has created value for clients such as early stage to mid-market companies, venture capital and private equity firms, academic institutions, foundations as well as family offices and some of the world’s largest insurance companies, commercial banks, and institutional investors.
“We are honored to be selected for this role by Lakeshore Foundation,” stated W.B. (Bud) Kirchner, Founder and CEO of Kirchner Group. “Our ability to leverage four decades of diversified and relevant experience for the benefit of such an important organization is a perfect illustration of our mission to create value and promote values.”
“We are committed to helping Lakeshore Foundation develop creative new models which allow them to produce the resources needed to both sustain and grow their mission of making the world better and more inclusive place. Seeing what Lakeshore Foundation has already done and understanding its commitment to the future, we are honored to working with them,” added Harold Jones.
“We are mutually committed to creating the resources, services and alternatives to allow persons with disabilities to lead the richest and most meaningful life possible,” commented John D. Kemp, President & CEO of Lakeshore Foundation. “We are excited to work with Kirchner Group and leverage their extensive network and decades of multi-disciplinary experience.”
