Alan follows these principles when guiding business owners selling a business. He works to achieve the success they previously thought was unobtainable.

For the past twenty years Alan has gained extensive experience in buying and selling businesses, which began when his first employer was acquired by a private equity firm. Since then Alan has been involved in numerous acquisitions as a buyer, seller and advisor to many entrepreneurs and business owners.
Based on years of experience, he understands that putting a small business for sale can be a daunting task for business owners. Most owners underestimate the time and effort it takes because it is not something they do every day.
