Seasoned management team successfully navigates Michigan-based business brokerage firm through 20 years of helping business sellers and buyers come together.

Our economy's success has always hinged on entrepreneurs, the leaders of small and medium companies, making their business work each and every day

Whitmore, Prokes, Micallef & Associates (WPM), a business brokerage company specializing in acquisitions, divestitures and mergers, marks its 20-year anniversary this year. Their market longevity is a tribute to G. David Whitmore, founder and president, the collective experience of Jim Prokes and Jeff Micallef, the firm's other principals, and the many associates who have devoted countless hours of service dedicated to WPM's clients.

The original firm, Singer Whitmore & Associates, was founded in 1989 by G. David Whitmore. After many years of market success, Whitmore was joined by entrepreneurs Prokes and Micallef in 2006 and the company evolved into Whitmore, Prokes, Micallef and Associates.

"Our economy's success has always hinged on entrepreneurs, the leaders of small and medium companies, making their business work each and every day," says Whitmore, who continues to make the firm his top priority. "As those business owners look to acquire, merge or retire, we help them avoid frequent pitfalls and common mistakes related to buying or selling a business. Although our impact to the economy is small, it is vitally important to each and every client we touch."

Whitmore, Prokes, Micallef & Associates has been able to grow and prosper through varying economic times by offering flexible, results-oriented services that help clients easily transfer business ownership. Whether clients are looking to buy a business or sell one, WPM considers every aspect of clients' needs by coordinating with the party's financial and legal professionals and developing a custom plan to complete the transaction smoothly.

Because the company has remained small and focused, even during its rapid growth, they are able to understand their clients intimately, recommending solutions that best fit their needs. "What sets us apart," said Jeff Micallef, Managing Partner, "is that we have no upfront fees for our services. WPM only receives a commission if and when a transaction is completed. It's terribly important that we not waste anyone's time, so we choose to only represent quality businesses and present qualified buyers. We have the same goal as our clients: getting a fair price for the seller and buyer while removing any barriers to getting the transaction done."

To mark this milestone, Whitmore, Prokes, Micallef & Associates would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to all of the clients who bestowed their trust to the firm and its reputation over the past 20 years. "Whether it was selling, purchasing or referring a business, we are deeply grateful that we could be of service," said Micallef. "Our clients and community have been good to us and we would like to share this milestone achievement with them. We simply cannot say thank you enough."
