Innovation with Integrity

Bruce Wildes has spent his 30+ year career focusing on start-ups and turn-arounds within both small family owned businesses and divisions of Fortune 500 companies like AT&T, Bell Atlantic, Agway, and Key Bank. Each time, he received national recognition for his achievements.   

Bruce founded Acadia Business Advisors, LLC, in 2008, with the vision of bringing market research to businesses in an effort to increase customer satisfaction.  With a passion for connecting the right partners, Bruce efficiently brings together a team of professionals to provide services to his clients.  A "general contractor" of sorts, Bruce puts all the pieces of profitability into motion, so that his clients can focus on what they do best. 

A Maine native, Bruce graduated from the University of Maine with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Resource Business Economics.  He is a member of the Senior Skulls Honor Society and Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.

Bruce has lived in Cumberland over 25 years.  In his free time he runs the Cumberland Wood Bank. a local volunteer-run fuel assistance program that collects, processes, and delivers over 100 cords of firewood a year to local families in need.  They also sell firewood and use 100% of the funds for fuel assistance.
