Who I work with

I work with business owners who are looking to buy or sell, whether it’s today or ten years from now, as well as transactional attorneys, accountants and financial planners. With personal experience building, growing and selling three companies, I bring firsthand knowledge and empathy to help clients find the right buyer with less stress throughout the transaction from start to finish.

My specialty

I specialize in building dynamic relationships, business valuation and shepherding my clients through the process of selling their business – but my real specialty is building and leveraging my network of respected attorneys, financial planners and leaders to facilitate and accelerate mutually beneficial deals on behalf of my clients.

I build relationships, not accounts. Clients always have access to me, even on nights and weekends.

Specialty - Network and Relationships

I sell over 85% of the businesses I list. The national average is 20%.

Unique things about me

I was in a bank while it was robbed. I met Yogi Berra once. I’ve completed the Triple Bypass bike ride 10 times and the Double Bypass bike ride 5 times.

When I am not at work

I love to visit my family in Wisconsin as often as I can. I’m a big golfer, so I try to find opportunities to play when my schedule permits. I also love to lift weights, exercise and generally stay active as much as I can.

People say I am


A nice and honest guy who knows everybody and is a ton of fun to be around.
