A Trusted Advisor for Rising Middle Market Companies
Marc’s family sold their family business in 1984, and due to bad advice and planning, ended up with effectively nothing to show for it. Marc was determined to help others from making those mistakes.
He went into Investment Banking to learn how businesses should be sold and what buyers look for. In his M&A career, he has worked on over 100 transactions worth over $3bn in over 24 countries, across a wide range of industries, so he knows many of the issues facing a business owner when planning an exit. Finally, he is a Certified Value Builder to help his clients build value for that exit in a formal process.
Also, he focused on strategy and finance to help business owners grow their businesses beyond a lifestyle business and to a size it made sense for them to sell. He has helped many clients understand their financial situation and plan accordingly for growth, waste reduction, and increased profitability.
Today Marc works with CEOs, Business Owners, and Senior Executives to help them live the lives they want, whether that be finding more personal time to planning to grow the business and leadership team so that the owner has many options available to them when they wish to exit.
While many offer these services, you want someone alongside you who has developed companies, bought and sold businesses, and not just advised on a sale or purchase.
Marc has domestic and international companies as clients, lived in four countries, and worked in over 20; he understands working in foreign markets and managing cultural issues. Marc has resided in Atlanta for over 21 years.
