Randy has over 35 years of experience in business ownership, business management, sales and marketing management, and business consulting. He brings unique insight to buying and selling a business, as he is a former business owner of several small to midsize privately held companies. As a mergers and acquisitions advisor with True North, he is driven by a desire to help people reap the rewards of business ownership.

After a successful sales and marketing career with Fortune 500 companies, Randy pursued his dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Over the course of 20 years, he founded, purchased, merged and/or sold four companies. This background has provided Randy with a personal understanding of not only the complexities of managing and growing a business but also how to deal with the nuances and emotional challenges of buying or selling a business.

Randy consistently delivers for his clients, as demonstrated by the number of listings, dollar volume of businesses sold and buyer assistance. In recognition of his accomplishments at Sunbelt Business Advisors, Randy was named Broker of the Year in 2017 and received the 2015 Sunbelt Torch Award, which is presented to the broker who “through their actions and performance, fuels the entrepreneurial fire in buyers and sellers alike.” Randy is an industry generalist and works with small, midsize and lower middle-market businesses in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, retail, technology, service and health care–related businesses.
