Alan does not believe in luck. Rather, he believes you make your own success, through hard work, preparation and execution.
Alan brings this principle to work every day, guiding business owners through the divestment process to achieve success that they previously thought were unobtainable.
He started A. Crossley & Associates following almost a decade as a partner with a leading investment bank firm. Prior to which he had a career working in and running a number of businesses. Some were family owned and operated; others were multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporations. He has extensive experience in the mergers and acquisitions markets. This began in 1989 when his first employer was aquired by a Private Equity Firm. Since this time he has been involved in multiple acquisitions as a buyer, seller and advisor.
Based on his experience, he knows selling a business can be a daunting task for business owners. Most underestimate the time and effort it takes, because it is not something they do every day.
He also understands that there is more to your company than spreadsheets and financial statements. It's your livelihood, your passion, your family, your life.
He holds an MBA from Queens University and a B.A. in Economics.
Helping you divest with purpose is what we do everyday.
