Podcast: Tim Sheehy, Founder and CEO of Bridger Aerospace
by Kristi Marvin on 2023-03-15 at 7:45am

For better or worse, fighting fires is big business. This week, we speak with Tim Sheehy, Founder and CEO of Bridger Aerospace (NASDAQ:BAER).

Bridger operates a fleet of firefighting airplanes and support vehicles in the Western United States and it closed a combination with Jack Creek Investment Corporation on January 25th.

Tim explains how this age-old business is built on steady government contracts, but its needs and sophistication are growing and why its SPAC merger gives Bridger some unique opportunities for consolidation in a space that has been structurally resistant to such changes.

Give it a listen.
