We had a challenging transaction – selling our Fulflex division to an international buyer who was also a major joint venture partner of ours. We engaged Dunn Rush & Co. to help us navigate through the anticipated and unforeseen issues. They were with us every step of the way and their experience and knowledge was instrumental in accomplishing our goals.

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!

Dunn Rush & Co. helped us with a recent sale of a portfolio company, and we were very pleased with the process and outcome. Greg and his team did a particularly effective job of quickly organizing materials, contacting a targeted group of potential buyers, and creating competition among multiple interested parties. Hands-on, senior-level attention throughout the process was an important part of getting our transaction done, and Dunn Rush delivered start-to-finish.
