Podcast: Growing Your Business Through Strategic Acquisition

Podcast: Growing Your Business Through Strategic Acquisition

For the 100th Episode of #PoisedForExit, Lisa Meyer, advisor with Sunbelt, was invited to interview a client of hers, who’s growth strategy has been to acquire other companies in his industry. He’s got a system for that, and a strategy that works. 

Jeff RahnPresident of On Time Service Pros began his career as an employee and he worked his way up, as they say. But, not without issues. Some of the very things he went through as an employee he tries not to emulate today as an employer. 

When assessing whether a company is a fit for him to buy, he watches for two things, that the owner is truly ready to sell, and that the company’s focus was on customer service. If those two exist, it’s likely going to be a good match. 

Sunbelt Business Advisors is a proud sponsor of the Poised for Exit Podcast. The Poised for Exit podcast seeks to help entrepreneurs improve, grow – and successfully exit – their businesses.

Julie Keyes, a life-time entrepreneur and founder of KeyeStrategies, understands what keeps an owner up at night and the balancing act required to work both ‘in’ and ‘on’ the business. The firm’s mission is to help business owners increase enterprise value and prepare for a future exit.

Julie believes in providing outside perspective and mentoring, which made all the difference for her while spending years growing and improving her companies before selling and becoming a business adviser in 2011.
