MICHAEL G. STAIR, MBA
Founding Partner & CEO
Aident Capital LLC
Mr. Stair is an accomplished executive with over 35 years of experience and an impressive track record of success helping companies ranging from startups and turnarounds to bankruptcies and large multinational firms across a number of industries. His CEO/CIO/CFO/COO background reflects strong leadership and judgment, as well as superior analytical, communication and project management skills. He is highly skilled at helping businesses function more effectively, more efficiently, and more profitably. He leads all aspects of management and operations at Aident Capital, our affiliated investment manager.
Mike has taken multiple businesses through successful growth and exit, most recently having led (as President & CEO) the turnaround and successful sale of a mid-sized, family-owned home health company. He brings a breadth and depth of experience that translates to immediate, positive results for clients. His passion is bringing out the best in organizations; in helping owners recognize the full potential for their businesses; and in seeing ‘what might be’ become ‘what is.’
After working with a major international agribusiness company for seven years, where he was instrumental in forming two successful joint ventures, Mike co-founded and led a management services firm. There, for over 25 years he provided interim C-level management and consulting services to small and medium sized companies, sometimes working on a project basis while other times assisting through longer term relationships. Mike’s diverse clients have included manufacturers, chemical handlers, non-profits, wholesale distributors, and professional service firms. Business owners look to him as both mentor and coach.
Mike has served on the boards of both for-profit and non-profit organizations. He has presented multiple seminars for chambers of commerce and conferences, and maintains various professional affiliations. Mike is an avid boater and, when not assisting clients, can be found exploring the New England coast from Martha’s Vineyard to Penobscot Bay.
