“As a vet, thoroughly researching my cases is critical to success of my cases. So when I started looking at the possibility of merging with a corporation, I took the same approach to finding a partner. Coming to the conclusion that corporate partnership would be the next step in my path was easy as it meant that retirement was guaranteed, and with the power of the larger pool of hospitals, I was capable of more. The real challenge was how much and who.
During the process of interviewing companies to learn their philosophies and get first offers, I met Dr Ackerman. I had several good offers, and honestly I thought it was crazy to pay a broker. I was wrong.
After listing with Gary, doors were opened that I was not able to open for myself. The offers I got were higher and more creative to meet my individual needs.
In the end I got my dream partner. A company I love, who loves me and was willing to create a niche that was tailor made for me for the price I wanted.
But it didn’t stop there- Gary introduced me to an experienced team of specialists who were knowledgeable about veterinary practice sales so that I had the most experienced representation in the industry to make sure the contract protected me and that the taxes were managed to my advantage.”
