In the feature article of this issue of Owner to Owner, we sit down with Travis Boersma, the founder and CEO of Dutch Bros Coffee, to discuss growing and scaling the business, the importance of people, values and culture and why he’s in the relationship business, not the coffee business.

In addition, as BBH kicks off its bicentennial anniversary, we speak with Managing Partner Bill Tyree about critical turning points at the firm, the company’s culture and values and the importance of speaking up and voicing ideas. Finally, Wealth Planner Karin Prangley discusses the QSBS election – a method used to sell shares in a C corporation completely or partially income tax-free. As always, we review the overall economy, credit markets and private equity and mergers and acquisitions markets.
