Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Since 1997, Ahern & Associates have made it their daily mission to provide accurate and honest operational assessments and transportation advice to trucking and logistics companies across the country. Working with many small business owners, as well as large publicly traded trucking companies, Ahern is well known for developing very close working relationships with their clients. Since their inception, they have developed a very strong “brand” reputation that is well recognized in the transportation and logistics industry.
Ahern was recently engaged by a well-known logistic company to assist them in completing Phase 2 of their business model; expanding their business by locating a strategic partner. CEO Andy Ahern and his team were able to utilize their unique expertise and knowledge in the transportation industry to put the client together with 1 of the Fortune 100’s fastest growing companies - and the rest is history.
The client was so impressed with Ahern’s ability to perform, that they wrote a testimonial letter on October 22, 2013 which has been featured on the company website.
“We knew right away that Ahern was the right firm for us. Andy, you and your team did a superb job in putting us in contact with one of Fortune’s 100 fastest growing companies. At that point, the rest was basically history. So once again, I wanted to take the time to thank you guys. Hopefully any other business out there interested in selling will take the time to read this and realize that you guys are really a class act… It was a real pleasure working with you and your team during the sale of our company.”
Andy Ahern commented on Ahern & Associate’s record breaking year of consultation in a market under fire. He credits their unique business model for their success which is entirely different from traditional business brokers or investment bankers. They do not get involved in contract negotiation or due diligence, but what they do is prepare Sellers to properly prepare their business for sale and assist in establishing a pricing that is realistic in the market place.
