We understand that selling a trucking company involves many factors that go well beyond finances; our new sales boot camp is the only service available which educates sellers on the marketplace as well as the emotional aspect
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Andy Ahern, CEO of Ahern and Associates, Ltd. has recently introduced a new, one-day sales boot camp aimed at properly preparing owners of transportation companies for the sale of their business. This new program comes on the heels of Ahern’s recently introduced equipment purchasing and liquidating service for growing transportation companies.
Coming off a record 2011, the transportation analysts at Ahern and Associates have sold over 300 transportation and warehousing companies while growing and leveraging their contacts within the trucking and logistics industries—from the largest movers and shakers in the industry to the mom and pop carriers who are the life blood of America. Ahern has aided in selling companies of all sizes over the last 25 years and has had particular success with midmarket buyers.
Addressing a major gap in the marketplace, Ahern’s new boot camp takes a comprehensive, consultative approach to selling transportation companies addressing not only the financial issues, but the mental and emotional burdens most owners deal with when contemplating the sale of their company. During the sales boot camp, Ahern and his team will meet with the owner of the transportation company for the entire day to thoroughly address all of the processes involved in selling a company.
Those enrolled in this new service will learn how to mentally prepare to “let go” of their company, establish a current market value to their business and create a maximum value prior to offering for sale. Ahern’s team will thoroughly review the business and advise on how to overcome objectives from prospective buyers while providing alternatives on how to create the most shareholder value in any market condition. Additionally, attendees will learn about the several types and structures of a sale, how to properly market their business and know exactly what type of information to release to prospective buyers as well as the critical timing of release of that information.
As part of the boot camp, meals will be served during the day and attendees will be treated to a personal group dinner where final details can be discussed. This service is designed for a company of any size--whether it’s a trucking company that has 10 trucks or a company that has 1,000 trucks. Two people will be allowed to attend each of the seminars, whether it’s husband and wife, a Chief Executive Officer and a President, of Operations Manager and an Owner.
“We understand that selling a trucking company involves many factors that go well beyond finances; our new sales boot camp is the only service available which educates sellers on the marketplace as well as prepares them to handle the strong emotional aspect of selling a business,” explains Ahern.
