About Jane Johnson, President

Jane has worked with dozens of business owners during the last decade to help them achieve their exit goals. She is obsessed with teaching owners how to exit their businesses for maximum value on their own terms and timeline. She sold her first business in 2004 and discovered that there was a dearth of information available to exiting owners and few objective advisors who could assist her.

Jane forged ahead on her own to negotiate the sale and she retained 100% of her clients and team members in the process. She spent the next three years as a partner in the buyer’s firm, driving continual growth in revenue from both products and services.

This eye-opening experience fueled Jane’s desire to assist other business owners whether they intend to transfer their businesses internally to management or family or externally to an outside buyer. To that end, she co-authored Cashing Out of Your Business – Your Last Great Deal in 2014 and developed a dynamic curriculum to educate owners on the best practices of ownership transition planning.

Jane spent several years in corporate finance at GE and in public accounting prior to starting her first business. She is a CPA, a Certified Business Exit Consultant (CBEC™), a Certified Merger and Acquisition Advisor (CM&AA™), and a Certified Family Business Advisor (FBA).
