Michael Meyer, partner of the Benjamin Ross Group, a business broker / mergers and acquisitions firm, has just been elected as President of the Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association.
The Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is promoting ethics, education, networking and cooperative communication among transactional professionals and business intermediaries in Pennsylvania and the surrounding states. The Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association established in 1998 is an affiliate of the International Business Brokers Association and one of only 16 regional organizations of its kind in the country.
Business Brokers, also called Intermediaries for larger transactions, are generally engaged as advisors to business owners of closely held businesses though some members will be engaged to represent buyers. Most will value a business, find ready, willing and able buyers/sellers to purchase or sell the ownership of a business, will negotiate and document the details necessary to bring a transaction to a close. The practice of business brokerage, by its very nature, demands an acumen for business operations with a genuine respect for confidentiality. The professionals of the Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association come together to experience the benefits of group synergism with the end goal of better serving their respective clients.
