This week on the Exit: From politics to eggs, David Radlo has not only had big exits, but he’s also done business with big leaders like Fidel Castro. When David left college he had an interest in politics and ran for state representative. While he didn’t win that race, years later his business dealings with Fidel Castro would lead him back to politics when he found himself working on back channel diplomacy with the US Government. David has had an incredibly diverse entrepreneurial journey that has seen him work in biotech, shipping, as well as riding the cage-free, free-range egg boom. As founder and CEO of Radlo Foods for over 20 years, David grew that business to 100 employees, eventually achieving an exit to one of their competitors. Listen to this week’s episode to discover what tips David shares for negotiating, exit planning and the importance of building relationships with your competitors.
