As an industry leader in brokerage services for mergers, acquisitions and business sales, Gregg since 2003 has brokered the sale of more than 200 small, closely held companies spanning a wide range of sectors, including wholesale, distribution, manufacturing, service, food and restaurant, automotive and retail. Throughout this period, 75% of Gregg’s engagements have come through referrals, a sure sign of client satisfaction.
