About Us

The Gottesman Company was established in 1985 by Eugene Gottesman, Lifetime CBI, and Chairman. (CBI-Certified Business Intermediary by the IBBA: There are only 600 CBI's in the U.S. of whom less than 20 are "Lifetime" CBIs.)

We are different from your "Conventional" business brokers. We do not "Represent" either the Buyer or the Seller as a fiduciary agent. The Gottesman Company operates as M&A Business Brokers, the largest such firm in the US and Canada with close to 100 professionals coast to coast. Sometimes we start with the Seller and find the Buyer; sometimes we start with the Buyer and find the Seller. In any event, we arrange for the introduction to the transaction and earn a fee on a "Success Basis" only.

Additional Value Added Broker Service in connection with the introduction of Buyers to Sellers include; creation of Selling Documents (e.g. Executive Summaries, Profiles); Reconstruction of Financial Statements to help show Hidden Values; Customized Buyer Searches and Seller Searches.

We can help you in Buying or Selling "Mid-Market" businesses. We work directly with business owners, but also partner with other Brokers and Intermediaries to maximize their client options and support their growth and profit goals. And, we never ask for retainers and earn our Broker's fees only on the closing of a transaction.

Gottesman Company is one of the largest M&A firms in the US specializing in finding Buyers for Sellers and Sellers for Buyers. We have been established since 1985 and currently have over 100 M&A Intermediaries throughout North America, coast-to-coast, in both the US and Canada, enabling us to work with our clients in person. Our people come from the "ranks" with many years of experience in manufacturing, distribution, services and retail chains. We are a "Nationwide Firm with a Local Presence".

To be one of the premier business merger and acquisition firms in the United States and Canada, acting as Brokers, providing middle-market companies and acquirers with first class opportunities.
