Our History

Our firm was founded in 2004 to cater to the underserved needs of Blue-Chip executives ready to take their high-caliber management and operation expertise to the role of business owner. As a speaker for The Kauffman Foundation and Right Management, Kevin found these individuals all across the country but didn’t see a service to connect these executives with businesses to buy. He founded The DVS Group to bridge the gap and get deals done.

With every closed deal, our team has accumulated more and more experience and thus, our services have expanded. We work with the whole range of buyers – executives, corporations, family offices, etc. – and with business owners looking to get a deal done. The deal could be debt restructuring, a management team buy-out, a capital raise or the sale of the business. No matter what your deal is we’ll help you get it done.
