Selling our company after 120 years of family ownership was a very difficult decision. Having developed a relationship with both Tom and Jake Johnson over the years made me much more comfortable in discussing my concerns openly. Their advice and counsel were invaluable in helping me reach my decision. Johnson Consulting Group’s disciplined and structured processes resulted in several very serious offers and maximized the value we received. I had been involved in both acquisitions and sales in the past, Tom and Jake proved to me the value of having knowledgeable, dedicated advisors in such an important transaction. Tom helped me put aside the emotional part of the decision and to recognize every business is faced with transition of ownership at some point. There was never any pressure for me to sell, Tom and Jake were sincere in wanting to help me reach a decision, whatever it might be. Tom made me realize he was more than a broker, he was a trusted advisor and friend, with my best interests at heart. JCG helped secure my family’s future and we are forever grateful.
