Years of high-level strategic marketing experience helped prepare Joshua to lead Lion Business Brokers and its successful team of Mergers and Acquisition Advisers.Selling a business takes trust, and Joshua has worked hard to build that over his career. Joshua relies on lessons he learned while working for both privately and publicly held national and international companies to get the job done. “Our goal is to set the bar high on the level of service business owners should expect when engaging with professionals in the M&A industry”, he says. Every deal he and his team facilitate requires laser-focused attention to detail.Joshua looks for advisers like himself, experts who are ready to handle every step of the process, to help business owners make informed decisions. “I love working with business owners,” Joshua says. “Every transaction is unique and brings its own set of challenges. I’m a problem-solver. There is no boring repetition in this industry.” In addition to attention to detail, confidentiality is key when selling a business, and Joshua works diligently to ensure all transactions remain private.Selling a business is a life-changing moment for the seller — and the buyer. Joshua considers it an honor to be a trusted advisor in the journey of selling a business. Joshua is less interested in the number of clients Lion Business Brokers brings on, as he is in providing a superior level of customer service to the clients they have.
