We specialize in a very limited number of industries. This specialization gives us the ability to understand markets, valuations, industry trends and strategies. We also have developed thousands of contacts and keep abreast of those that are selling and those that are buying. Most importantly we are superb negotiators and we find ourselves often times representing both parties because of the high level of trust they each have with us. We get into the details of every deal and carefully manage timelines, negotiations, and outside advisers. Within our specialty, no one has closed the number of transactions that we have which results in credibility to both buyers and sellers.

Many owners realize their best option is to transition ownership to a family member or individuals from their executive team.  Successful transitions can take several years to complete. We work with owners from day one to help determine the steps and the timelines necessary to transfer the leadership roles. In most cases, the owners will realize that the team about to take over does not have the necessary personal financial capital, severely limiting the monetization of ownership. We have employed numerous strategies to overcome this to provide the owner with up-front cash and secure financing.

We are entrepreneurs ourselves. Jim has started and sold four different businesses in four different industries. He has been described as a serial entrepreneur who understands the pressures of meeting a payroll and the emotions of selling a business. He is available to his clients 24/7 and often times can be found on the phone late at night discussing something that an owner has no one else to share with. It truly is lonely at the top and Jim is there when you need him. Many of his current clients have been coaching clients for as long as 30 years. Not only does that speak to the close business relationship but also to a deep personal bonding.

Why Choose Ownership Transitons?

Quite simply, we get good deals done. This is how:

  1. We charge by the hour and do not take contingency success fees. This eliminates the temptation to close a deal, whether it is good or bad, just for the fee.
  2. We understand underlying agendas and goals. We work with both parties to truly understand what they want to accomplish. We are superb negotiators.
  3. We maintain a disciplined time frame to avoid “deal fatigue.”
  4. We specialize in a couple of industries to increase the impact of our knowledge and contact base.

“We employed Jim as a mediator during a complicated buyout. One stockholder was buying out four of us. Jim helped him navigate his way through the SBA and helped us to come up with a fair buyout. All five   people were happy at the end. I would strongly recommend Jim and his team to assist if you have a transition in your future.”

"Mr. Bleech did an outstanding job facilitating the purchase of our dealership. He was able to create a mutually beneficial solution for both buyer and seller. Without him the transaction would have been extremely difficult or perhaps impossible. His enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge of the dealership and manufacture were critical to make our deal happen. I would recommend Jim to anyone who is looking to buy a dealership or expand their existing operations."

"I had the opportunity to work with Matt Danyliw and Jim Bleech in a complicated transaction involving an emotional seller of a medium-sized, closely-held company.  As the buyer, without Jim and Matt’s guidance, I don’t think we’d have made it to the closing table.  Their help working through the emotion was as critical to moving the deal forward as was their ability to work through the loan documents and banking requirements.  I found both Matt and Jim to be highly ethical and professional and I appreciatively recommend their services to anyone working through a business transaction."
