Delivering value after a business sale May 12, 2016

Once an owner-manager has sold their business and exited, it is often difficult to add value quickly.

It is easy to underestimate the expertise and experience that leaves with them, and the time needed to re-engage the remaining workforce and management teams.

Finding a good non-executive director to work with the seller, to help re-engineer the business in preparation for a sale and beyond to help bond the new teams, can help to deliver an earlier return on investment.

The ideal non-exec will have worked through the re-engineering process as a seller and understand the sale process.
