What Clients Are Saying About Dunn Rush

I was approached by multiple potential buyers and knew I needed help to navigate the process while continuing to run my business. Dunn Rush was instrumental in organizing the data room, managing the bidding, facilitating negotiations, maintaining positive communications, maximizing the sale price and getting it over the line. I highly recommend Kevin and Greg.

Bob Keeley / Former Owner & CEO, Diversified Project Management, Inc.

The Dunn Rush team skilfully guided us through the sale process resulting in our achieving maximum value for our division, Moeller Marine Products. They ran their 2-stage competitive sale process which resulted in us receiving multiple initial offers which were then winnowed down to the top few interested buyers. We met with those buyers and supplied additional information and Dunn Rush then had those buyers compete against one another which resulted in our achieving very favorable terms and an outstanding valuation.

Dana Barlow / CEO of The Moore Company, and its former subsidiary Moeller Marine Products

I had never been involved in the sale of a business before, let alone my own. I hired Dunn Rush & Co. to assist me through the process because of their extensive experience in  helping similar business owners. Kevin and Greg prepared us well for the task, anticipated events and issues, negotiated hard and delivered superb results. They know what they are doing and do it well!
