Succession and transition planning

Consulting services for businesses

Are you planning to retire or to move on to other business ventures? Have you identified a successor? Next to starting a business, deciding how you will exit may be your most important decision.

  • Enhanced communication between entrepreneur and successor
  • Preserving and growing shareholder equity
  • Coaching and executive mentoring
  • Establishing a clear financial structure
