President, Sandberg Consultants
Derrik M. Sandberg has a B.Sc. in Geophysical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and a Master of International Management from the American Graduate School of International Business in Glendale, Arizona.
After early stints in South America, managing oil- and gas-exploration seismic crews, and in San Francisco as financial analyst with an investment bank, he becam e Partner and President at Precision Sampling, Inc., a drilling company whose eventual sale to a Canadian firm he would oversee. He went on to found Resonant Sonic International Drilling (RSI) and, in 2011, to negotiate the company’s sale to Cascade Drilling, when he also joined Cascade as Vice President of Strategy. At Cascade, Derrik’s role entailed review of a number of acquisition targets and involved him in several purchases. The business would more than triple in size, to a valuation above $100M, during his tenure.
In his current role as head of Sandberg Consultants, Derrik builds on this extensive background, assisting small- to medium-sized environmental, geotechnical and mining companies making a transition to a new level in business through sale (exit strategy) or through growth by acquisition of other firms.
