Position:  M&A Advisor

Exit Strategies has openings in California for motivated individuals who …
  • Are smart, honest and motivated to make a difference
  • Have owned a company or had P&L responsibility in a corporate setting
  • Have a business (MBA preferred) or finance degree and strong financial acumen

The skills of a successful California business intermediary (a.k.a. M&A broker, Business Broker, Investment Banker, or Deal Maker) include sales, accounting, finance, research, marketing, Excel modeling, negotiation, mediating, writing, educating, coaching, problem solving, computers, and project management. Intermediaries prospect for clients, educate buyers and sellers, perform financial and valuation analyses, conduct research, write offering memorandums, make presentations, maintain detailed confidential records, recruit and screen buyers, build relationships, manage due diligence, and work in concert with accountants, attorneys and others to achieve M&A transaction closings. Successful intermediaries do it all.
