CEO Role: Strategy, the Economy, Succession and M&A-Yes, They Are Connected!

As the owner of a 32-year old consulting firm with 10 very talented professionals, there are certain roles that I've gravitated to and others that someone on my team is better suited to provide. The role that clients expect of me is to help them look downfield and position their business strategically within the competitive environment. That is the first way in which the 5 topics above are all directly related: each of these topics are the highest order of strategic issues that an owner has to address.

“When I decided to purchase a business, I chose Decision Associates M&A to assist in the process. It was the first time that I had used an M&A firm and it went very well. Don Moore and B.J. Lechner had the ability to facilitate meetings and keep us, the seller and our attorneys talking to work through the questions that we had. They kept us on track and updated on each turn along the way. Decision Associates is a reputable, professional and knowledgeable firm, and I would recommend them to anyone who is selling their business or looking for a new venture.”
