Tony T. McDaniel, CPA, CBB, BBN, ABC


Tony has 32 years’ experience working with small to medium sized companies in many industries. Nobody in the local area, and few people nationally, has Tony’s credentials. He is a retired CPA and has been certified by four prominent national business broker organizations. This experience has resulted in our firm’s unique process that helps business owners not only successfully sell their company but also for maximum value.

Many business owners have a substantial portion of their overall personal net worth tied up in their business value. Many owners unknowingly leave a sizable amount of their net worth at the closing table. Don’t take this risk by leaving the sale of your business in inexperienced hands. If you needed open heart surgery, would you use a resident or a foot doctor for that matter? The same concept applies when selling your company. Experience counts!
