DeCleene Truck & Refrigeration & Trailer Sales

I was looking out to the future and decided it was time to start looking into my exit strategy for my company. We are celebrating our 50 Year Anniversary as a family owned business and wanted to keep in mind all our employees that helped make this all possible. I needed someone that would keep this at the top of the list and do a professional job, excel in marketing, sales and finally closure. I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Schwantes from Creative Business Services / CBS-Global after he sold a business for a friend of mine previously. Michael and his team at CBS did a spectacular job for me, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their business or property.

Creative Business Services has specialized in the staffing industry for a number of years and handled this sale in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend Creative Business Services for future mergers or acquisitions.

John did a great job representing both buyer and seller interests in our closing. Not only did he coordinate the standard Buyer and Sellers activities he also kept the pressure on the bankers and attorneys in getting the deal done. Certainly John’s contacts in the banking industry played a significant role in getting our funding and ultimately closing.

Mark/Ryan Associates

Working with Bob Wolter on our acquisition of Mark/Ryan Associates was a great experience overall. He was there when I needed him throughout the introductions, negotiations, due diligence and integration planning. We have discussed many potential acquisition prospects over the past 7 years. Bob found the right strategic and cultural fit for us with Mark/Ryan Associates, that further enhances our professional staffing service offerings in the Chicago marketplace and comes with some great new customers and employees.

My thanks to Bob Wolter of the Creative Business Services / CBS-Global team for the guidance and process in not only identifying a number of potential buyers, but also the professional expertise and support through the entire process resulting in the sale of Foodmaster Logistics of Wisconsin LLC. Having someone like Bob assisting in presentation of the company, providing realistic methodology of expectations, and strategic steps in addressing issues during negotiations is particularly helpful in reaching a successful conclusion for all parties. I am pleased to have had Bob work with me on this project and proud to have him as a friend.
