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!

Kevin and Greg helped me work through a very complicated series of simultaneous acquisition opportunities. They lined up and negotiated the necessary equity and debt financings, and worked through all the issues to get the best deal closed in tough market conditions. They gave me great advice throughout the process and did whatever it took to help me get it done.
