When considering an exit strategy from my business, I had two towering concerns, my employees and my former customers. Matt made it clear from the beginning that he would take care of both of them by building on my efforts of 32 years and infusing the much needed capital to unleash the full potential of my unique brand and growing it to a level that I never thought possible. I could not be happier with my decision to work with Matt and his team to help move me to the next chapter in my life.
