“For over 10 years I’ve helped companies buy, sell and evaluate business opportunities. Both on the acquirers side helping private equity companies ; as well as the buyers side advising on mergers and acquisitions and vendor due diligence
Over the years I noticed common issues that arose in the M&A process that were not really fixable during the short time frame there is for the sale of a company. If the company had addressed these issues one or two years in advance they would have made their lives easier and have gotten a better valuation.
While I enjoyed working in finance and consulting I wanted to make a bigger impact in helping business owners prepare their companies for sale. That’s what led me to the decision to set up City Performance Coaching to enable business owners.”
