Business Transition Opportunities

Baby Boomers own about 12 million businesses. Estimates are that between 70% to 75% of these companies are likely to change hands over the next 10 years. Helping to plan for and successfully assist our companies and clients through these upcoming ownership/management transitions will be of increasing importance in the coming decade. Todd Bachelder and Scott LaValley of Baldwin & Clarke will share their Exit Planning thoughts and experience, and we will discuss the opportunities and challenges these upcoming transitions are likely to provide all of us.

Scott and his staff are responsible for the preparation of wealth accumulation plans, wealth preservation plans, comprehensive financial plans, value driver planning and business owner exit planning. Each plan is custom designed and tailored to fit the specific goals and circumstances of the client. Scott believes that an integral part of every plan is educating the client about the techniques that will help them accomplish their planning goals and objectives and then help them to understand the impact that it will have on their lives. Only after a client thoroughly understands the options available to them, can they make an informed decision and chart a confident course of action. Scott’s comprehensive approach to planning is iterative, whereby he works with clients over time to monitor and perhaps re-chart the course to accommodate any changes. Scott is also responsible for the design of non-qualified Executive Benefit Programs custom designed to help a business owner reward and retain valued executives.
