Joyce Usher-Mesiano, President, National Brokers Insurance Services Inc.

"When making the decision to sell our business, we carefully chose a strategic partner to prepare and assist us through the process. It was important to keep our decision as confidential as possible. We looked for a team with a preparation strategy, vast experience in mergers and acquisitions, and, in particular, a team that understood the intricacies and value of our reputation in the industry.

BDO followed a detailed plan and quickly identified a list of potential buyers. It was also important they understood our employees’ future plans and our established brands because they remain exactly what we and our customers have come to rely on and trust. 

While one might understand the volume of information required, we would have been hard-pressed to see a seamless transaction without the help of our BDO team. 

Having all the professional departments under one BDO brand made it easier for us to continue managing our business and put the BDO team to work without delays. BDO supported our divestiture in many ways, including financial preparation, tax filing and tax advice, information gathering and presenting, negotiation, legal services, and finding the right buyer.

Thank you to the entire BDO team!"
