After a long stint managing a construction company, I decided it was time to leave and go see more of the world. But I had no idea how to exit. I have no family to pass on the agency to and none of my key employees were in a position where they could take on the responsibility of managing and owning an entire business. I approached the 86 group through a friend’s recommendation and they were extremely professional and helpful. They were able to outline four potential exit strategies for me, and showed me which one would leave me the best off. I ended up selling the business to a third party and was able to exit just the way I wanted, so thank you 86!

Working at the 86 Group is great. There is nothing I have wanted more than to be of help to people, and at the 86 Group, I am given an outlet to do just that. What’s more, the office culture is simply incredible! Everyone is super friendly and ready to give a hand whenever there’s a tricky problem. The leadership is great and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I have worked in some toxic environments before, which is why this place is such a breath of fresh air to me.

Great experience. We originally hired 86 for a business valuation, then hired them to sell our business. They were very professional and assisted us throughout every aspect of the process.
