As experienced investment bankers and former CEO’s, COO’s, CFO’s and department heads with leading corporations in a variety of industries, we have often walked in your shoes. Over the past 20 years, our professionals have successfully worked with hundreds of sellers and buyers throughout the country, including family-owned businesses, corporations, and financial investors.
The vast majority of our transactions range from several million dollars to $25+ million purchase price – simultaneously positioning us above the typical broker advertising Main Street businesses for sale and well below the larger and far more expensive investment banks.
We work directly with business owners who are considering selling their businesses or seeking to grow through acquisition, guiding them through the entire process. As appropriate, we can draw on our network of professionals to provide interim financial and operating management to develop the business and effect a transaction.
Our mission is to maximize value to our clients through our experienced team of professionals who have the ability to contribute in ways that are far more effective and efficient than traditional consulting firms and investment banks.
