Rob is one of the more well-known names in the Ontario M&A field. An entrepreneur himself (still the owner of several companies), Rob has been helping owners to sell their businesses for almost two decades. Many business owners comment that when they ask about selling their business they are amazed by how many people suggest, “You should meet with Rob Mitchell—he’s the best.”
Rob is a past President of the Canadian Chapter of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) and current President of the Entrepreneurs Organization of South Western Ontario. He holds the designations of Certified Business Intermediary and Master Mergers and Acquisitions Intermediary. Rob also has an Engineering Degree and an MBA. More important than all those designations, though, is Rob’s deep knowledge of the M&A space and his passion for striking just the right deal for his clients. A previous client stated “I haven’t met anyone else who has Rob’s incredibly wide range of skills: Great attention to detail. Deep knowledge of many industries’ inner workings. An innovative marketing mind. Outstanding negotiation abilities. We’re very lucky he’s in our corner.” With his Engineering and Business background, Rob is an expert in helping medium sized manufacturing and light industry businesses, as well as Business to Business and Service Businesses with $700k to 10 Million in profits.
Rob states – “I truly love this business. I love meeting business owners and understanding how they got involved in their business and how through the years of hard work that they have built it to the current level. Owner/Operators are fascinating people, and they are amazing to work with. I also love being able to monetize all their years of hard work by getting them the best deal possible for their business. I have an extensive list of well-funded entrepreneurs and I am well-connected to the PE firms, the financial industry, accounting firms, and law firms. Many have worked with me several times and know what I can do for their clients. I have extensive experience packaging and positioning a business for acquisition, and I can bring multiple parties to the table to get the best deal possible for the seller. I look forward to speaking to you on a confidential basis to discuss your current situation.”
