Dan provides expert guidance to business owners from the initial meeting to closing – a process that often takes years as ownership positions the business and personal situations align. Dan has an ability to understand and summarize complex financial and business topics with clarity, and to counsel business owners with in-depth analyses of valuation, buyers and the marketplace.
Dan works with business owners in a variety of industries. Typical clients generate revenue of $5-$100 million.
Dan’s process is to meet with business owners to understand their goals then comparing these goals to the realities of the marketplace. A plan is created to achieve valuation and timing requirements. Once engaged, the goal is to confidentially find the buyer that most values the business.
In addition to maximizing economics, Sunbelt is often able to attract buyers that align with ownership’s qualitative objectives. Many owners desire qualitative outcomes such as finding a buyer committed to the long-term future of the company’s employees or a buyer who will invest to scale up the business to capture more market share.
Dan’s career includes 20 years in corporate America with positions as COO, CFO, division controller of a Fortune 100 public corporation and multiple board memberships.
