Ken was owner of a public accounting practice, providing small business consulting services, tax planning, tax preparation, and IRS audit representation. After 25 years, Ken sold his accounting practice and started a medical practice consulting company, focusing on revenue cycle management, administration responsibilities and multiunit business expansions.
Most recently, Ken joined the Quorum team, and turned his full attention to bringing business sellers and potential buyers together. In doing so, he undertakes to educate sellers regarding common influences that affect the current market value of their business, and advises them on issues that could possibly maximize the business’s value.
Additionally, working with buyers, Ken assists with matching a buyer to a business that best suits the buyer’s work experience, education, passions, and financial strength. Knowing this information will allow for a much more responsive search of available candidate businesses.
“Ultimately, it’s all about successfully matching a willing seller with a willing buyer, and that is my goal as a business intermediary.”
Ken earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from University of South Florida. He enjoys speaking before various groups on topics ranging from accounting matters to business profit maximization.
Ken enjoys travelling with his wife, Kathy, and when time permits, you might find him on the golf course.
