Letter Testimonials

“I sold both of my companies through Concord…Concord really moves a deal along. They think of a way to sell that would never have occurred to you. Salim is a hard worker and excellent negotiator. He gets it done.”

— Jack Giddens, Vector Industries & Blue Streak Finishers, December 2014

“…Salim was great to deal with. Anytime I had questions, or concerns, he was available…We know a lot of people in the industry. When they found out that we had sold and retired, they would say, ‘I wish we could retire.’ I tell everyone that when you are ready, call Concord. They will make it happen!”

— Christine & Pierre Jones, Quality Manufacturing, Inc., December 2014

“…we didn’t think it was possible for our manager to purchase the company, given the current credit environment. Your amazing tenacity and your knowledge of accounting, financing, and environmental issues helped tremendously to bring it to a successful close.”

John Hanson, Allied Technical Services, Inc., May 2010

“…we would like to take a moment to thank you for the tremendous work you did bringing the sale of our business to a successful conclusion. We are very pleased to have sold our businesses to a well-qualified buyer and to have gotten almost 80% cash at closing in such difficult economic times.”

John & Jennifer Bourdon, Optimus Transport & Transload, January 2012

“…Salim Dada obtained my asking price and closed within 2010 so I could avoid the capital gains tax increase, both key points for me…..Furthermore, the buyer Salim found has the ability to take the business to the next level so I feel I am leaving the business I built from the ground up in good hands.”

Doug Huffman, Unitime Imports, November 2010

“…without your contacts in the banking industry, understanding of structured financing, and the patience to explain this to lenders, I am not sure if the buyer would have ever been able to get financing! Even the banks learned from you!”

Craig Robinson, Graphic Impressions, Inc., July 2009

“I wish I had sold the company back in 2001 when you had advised me to do so. Nevertheless I am quite pleased with the buyer you brought to the table and the price that he offered to me.”

Mark Zueger, Polaris Machining Inc., May 2005

“I appreciate the fact that I got over 85% cash upfront…Keep up the good work.”

Don Lofgren, Pacific Printing & Mailing, May 2004

“I want to compliment you on your expert handling of the sale of my company. Even though you came highly recommended to me, I was still very impressed with how you found a buyer who was a perfect fit to carry on the business and continue my legacy. I am also very amazed that you were able to obtain financing for this transaction in this most horrendous current economic environment…”

Bill Nosworthy, Nosworthy Telecommunications Distributor, December 2008

“Your integrity gave us the confidence to proceed when negotiations became difficult because we could trust you to be fair and honest in your dealings with ourselves and with the buyer.”
