Tim Bergin is an accomplished executive who delivers major business initiatives. He is a pathfinder who identifies growth opportunities and leads the way for his Team.

Tim has served in both operating and consulting roles. He is an expert in all forms of Marketing – including Product/Service Development, Sales and supporting technologies.

Janas experience demonstrates that strategic buyers frequently pay the highest valuation multiples. However, their acquisition process is often more complex and attenuated than those of Private Equity Groups that are flush with acquisition capital. Strategic buyers require strong internal consensus that the acquisition of your company is a vital need.

Tim has deep, cross-functional corporate experience that enables Strategic Buyers to close transactions for sell side clients. He has led numerous initiatives requiring identification of strategic fit and realization of low-hanging fruit and long-term profitability opportunities, via business case analysis. He knows from experience which conversations and topics are essential to move from deliberation to decision.

As an added benefit, in partnership with Janas, Tim maintains close relationships with strategy and technology consulting firms that specialize in identifying acquisitions target lists for large companies.

Finally, post-COVID-19, Merger & Acquisition activity is increasingly reliant on ‘virtual experiences’ and remote Due Diligence. Tim understands how to tell your Company Story to enhance Enterprise Values for sellers and acquisition advantages for buyers. For instance, filmed interviews of seller executives and virtual plant walk-throughs can personalize and magnify a company’s value proposition. Tim brings digital communications skills to his clients that take advantage of the new world of social media, virtual meetings, and video presentations.

Tim has served as an executive in acquisition-oriented companies of all shapes and sizes — public, venture-backed and private. He knows how leadership thinks and the rationale they need to make outsized offers. Tim’s broad-based, business experience, coupled ‘can do’ military training, provides value that he brings to every client assignment.




Juliette Harrhy, an experienced M&A attorney, has joined Janas as a Managing Director. Her storied career with Hahn & Hahn, Kirkland & Ellis and Alston & Bird has focused on buy-side and sell-side transactions, representing Corporations, Private Equity Funds, Family-Owned Businesses and Individuals.

Juliette is joining Janas to apply her extensive background to focus on business strategies, due diligence, and family transition issues.  Juliette has almost 30 years of experience with middle market transactions, in both in the US and Europe. She has observed that many clients would benefit from pre-sale advice to maximize the benefits of their contemplated transactions. As an Investment Banker, she brings an in-depth understanding of buyer and seller motivations, as well as knowledge of the legal issues that could prevent sellers from maximizing the return from their sale transactions.

Her legal practice included cradle to grave corporate counseling with a focus on transactions. She has led teams on purchase and sale matters with values from a few million dollars to more than $1.0 billion.

Juliette’s experience enables her to balance client priorities. She advises clients about the complexities of the legal process which require balancing seller and buyer requirements to complete mutually satisfactory transactions. Her expertise streamlines and expedites the sales process for clients and anticipates issues that she solves proactively.

Her legal career began in London, with a mid-sized law practice where she focused on corporate matters. Upon moving to the US, she was a member of the Financial Services Group at Alston & Bird, an Atlanta firm with offices in Los Angeles and other cities.

During her tenure as a Partner with Kirkland & Ellis in Los Angeles, Juliette represented Private Equity Groups in buy-side and sell-side transactions in the Consumer Products, Industrial, Medical, and Food Products Industries. She also has expertise in transactions for distressed businesses, including bankruptcy. Her clients included troubled companies in Energy, Telecommunications, and Food Service.

Juliette’s experience in working with clients of different types and sizes, operating in diverse fields, makes her adept at understanding client objectives. She understands ‘telling client company stories’ to enhance M&A and Consulting results.
