We're deal people - who deal with people.
No matter where your deal is in the race we want to run next to you - making a difficult task achievable by providing these things:
The technical steps you need to get from where you are now to a closed deal
The knowledge you need to make sense of the esoteric dealmaking industry
3. Relationship Management
The wherewithal you need to handle the large percentage of dealmaking that’s emotional
4. Deal Structuring and Negotiations
The experience you need to know what is fair and reasonable in crafting the best deal possible
The connections you need to add the right attorney, banker, investor, insurance broker, etc. to your deal team
Here are a few things we're really good at:
1. SBA 7(a) loans
2. Proprietary deal sourcing
(Using our one-of-a-kind deal sourcing process, we find acquisition targets that aren’t on the market being seen by other potential buyers)
3. Representing Blue-Chip executive buyers
4. Social impact investment banking
Here are a few things we don't do:
(We will guide and advise you but, for example, we will not run a study to determine if an acquisition is the right strategic move for you)
2. Buy businesses
3. Work with start-ups
4. Raise funds
(But, if needed, we will help you find your deal’s financing)
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.
We’re deal people – who deal with people. Read about some of the great people we’ve worked with here.
