About Our Client:
Our buyer is experienced in the space and has started his own successful e-commerce and distribution business, which he has operated over the last 10 years. He has operated as a complete one-man shop during this time and understands what it takes to source products, manage inventory, and scale a digital business through strong marketing and sales. Over the course of his growth, our client scaled his business to become one of the top-performing distribution businesses on many e-commerce platforms and is now looking to take on a new business to dedicate his time towards.
Along with his experience, our client is entrepreneurially motivated and seeks to dedicate his time to training staff, improving process efficiencies, and expanding upon the existing legacy that an owner has worked hard to build. Our client is looking to take an active role in cultivating the business and has no timetable for an exit. Our client values the long-term relationship that he can cultivate with the seller and existing management and wants to ensure the business will prosper for many years ahead.
