Michael Brubaker, President & CEO, R.L. Drake, LLC.
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 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!
Everett “Vic” Firth (1931 – 2015), Founder and President, Vic Firth Company, Inc.
Dunn represented, marketed and successfully sold our business. My partner and I interviewed a number of investment bankers prior to the transaction and chose Kevin because of his broad industry experience, professional reputation and ability to get deals done. Kevin and his team learned everything about our business and put together a comprehensive offering memorandum which generated tremendous interest from both private equity and strategic buyers. Kevin conducted an efficient auction of our company and was able to “walk-up” the ultimate sale price substantially. We never second guessed our decision to hire Kevin and I strongly recommend him for consideration for your project.
