In a recent “Ask the Experts” podcast Doreen Morgan, owner of Sunbelt Business Brokers Atlanta, talked with Steve O about selling a distribution business.
Who is Doreen Morgan and Sunbelt Business Brokers Atlanta?
Doreen Morgan began her career in franchise development, helping people who wanted to purchase a franchise. She worked with five brands, including Mrs. Fields cookies. Doreen helped franchisees find locations and move through the franchising process more smoothly. An equity firm bought out her company, and they asked her to help sell their 350 corporate sites. As the list dwindled, she realized she would soon be out of a job. In 2004, she joined Sunbelt Atlanta, using her ample experience selling companies. She left the company to pursue other interests until it was time for the owner of Sunbelt Atlanta to retire, and she returned and bought the company.
The professionals working at Sunbelt have all owned companies and know what it takes to own and run a business successfully. They also understand what is needed when it is time to sell. Sunbelt Business Brokers Atlanta focuses solely on the sell side of things.
The company primarily operates in the Georgia area and the Southeast. However, they possess industry expertise and will stretch their availability across the country if needed.
