Since founding Exit Strategies Group in 2002, Al’s mission has been helping company owners exit right and retire well. He represents $5-100 million revenue companies in sales, recapitalizations, divestitures, management buyouts, mergers and acquisitions. He helps owners assess value and sale-readiness and create successful exit plans. Al’s valuation clients appreciate his first-hand knowledge of deal participant behavior. Al also invests in private businesses.

“I enjoy all aspects of M&A. Most of all I love finding strategic buyers, generating bids, negotiating, and optimizing outcomes for my clients.”

Before Exit Strategies Group, Al was president of IDC, a California company that designed and manufactured electronic controls and positioning devices for industrial automation. Al acquired an east coast company and assimilated it into IDC’s operations and participated in an 8-company merger. IDC eventually sold to multi-national Danaher Corp (NYSE: DHR). Earlier in his career Al led acquisition integrations, developed and launched technology products, formed strategic alliances, and built sales channels.

Al is a respected M&A industry leader. Since 1990 he has been involved in the valuation, sale, merger and acquisition of hundreds of businesses. Al has sold companies to regional, national and international buyers, private and public companies, ESOPs, private equity groups, family offices and individuals. He has relationships with first‐rate M&A attorneys, CPAs, debt and equity providers and deal specialists. He has the most respected M&A and valuation accreditations. He is a past president and board member of the California Association of Business Brokers. And he regularly speaks to professional and industry groups on M&A, exit planning and valuation topics.

“As president of Exit Strategies Group, I am proud of the powerful combination of large-firm resources and small-firm senior-level advice our clients receive. We consistently produce results in all market conditions.”
