Broker Biography

Tom Jenkins (216) 532-7769


Tom Jenkins is an Accredited Business Intermediary (ABI) and a Membership Committee Member of the IBBA. Tom's passion to help other business owners buy, sell, and protect their businesses stems from his 30 years of business ownership.

As an entrepreneur, Tom has enjoyed the successes and weathered the hardships changing markets and life events bring to business owners.

He learned the extreme importance of having an exit plan in place when a family member unexpectedly became seriously ill. Tom's business was thriving and growing at the time, and he needed to remove himself from day-to-day operations quickly in order to care for his family member. Because he did not have an exit plan in place, the process took valuable time away from both his business and his family while he worked to make a smart plan.

Due to his years of business experience, Tom was able to develop a profitable exit strategy and tend to his family member's needs. However, other business owners in similar situations, Tom learned, did not fair as well.

Tom founded Arrow Trusted Advisors in order to help other business owners learn from his past mistakes and to profit from his knowledge and experience. He often speaks at local business events and hosts industry-specific lunch-and-learns to help business owners explore possibilities.

He has developed an experienced team of marketers, lawyers, and researchers to help business owners sell their life's work with confidence.

Tom and team always put people first. Arrow's mission is to help people take aim for their futures, no matter the stage of business ownership they are in. For some, the future is a rich retirement; for others, it's starting out as a new business owner or expanding an existing business. Either way, Arrow can help you negotiate the right sale or acquisition.

Whatever future you're dreaming of, Arrow Trusted Advisors can help you take aim and make it a reality!

* Business Valuation Services
Understanding what your business is worth is a valuable tool in many situations. Ask about my various valuation certifications. Our methods ensure a comprehensive, defensible value for your business's unique location and situation. When the time comes to sell, you'll know that the asking price places you on firm ground. Likewise, buyers will know that listing prices reflect an in-depth analysis of a business's full profile.

All business owners should have a strategic exit plan in place. Without such a plan, business owners leave their hard-won success at risk should they ever face unexpected circumstances. A crucial step in the selling process, too, our exit strategy planning services help ensure the best outcome possible for business owners.

* Experienced Negotiation Services
In a business sale or acquisition, understanding the advantages and disadvantages of different deal structures is critical to getting the right deal for your situation. At Arrow, we understand that negotiating a business sale is about more than the asking price. We've sat at numerous negotiation tables with both buyer and seller-focused outcomes. Thus, we can help you understand and negotiate a complete deal that leaves both sides satisfied and eager to move forward.
