30 years of proven success

Helping people sell and buy family businesses.

OVERVIEW

For over 30 years, Steve Ferber has been helping people sell, and buy, family businesses.

Steve’s experience, wisdom, business savvy and negotiating skills have successfully closed the sale of hundreds of  companies in over three decades. Steve has marketed and sold businesses in the manufacturing, distribution, service and medical sectors, along with other verticals.

Ferber is an expert in mergers and acquisitions, private equity funding, business marketing and investment banking transactions. His association with The Wheatley Group, one of the leading merger and acquisition firms in the Southwest, gives his clients access to even greater resources to provide the best possible results for his clients.

He is a wise and talented deal guy who helps craft agreements with creativity, sensitivity and a thorough understanding of the seller’s strategic and personal goals.

Steve provides prudent advice at a very high level to his selling clients…usually family businesses with revenues ranging from $500,000+ to over $30,000,000. He is a specialist at creating winning “exit strategies” for business owners by using a combination of astute valuation, creatively “packaging” and “positioning” the business in the best possible light, smart marketing, strong negotiating skills and authoritative closing assistance. Most important, Steve carefully walks his clients through every step of the entire sell/buy process.

Steve Ferber has served as CEO, partner and Board Member of numerous regional and national companies, both public and private.

A distinguished business leader, speaker, trainer, facilitator and hands-on consultant to a host of successful, fast-growing companies, in addition to his work reprseneing hundreds of sellers and businesses, Steve has been an integral part of the launch of dozens of new businesses.
