Glover FoodsAugust 21, 2013
“My first experience with KSA was on the opposite side of the table when Glover was purchasing a distributor in Alabama they represented. I was immediately impressed with their expertise. After that transaction was completed, we retained KSA for a multi-year advisory relationship. While I believe their industry expertise, insights on today’s buyers and technical skills are unparalleled, the most impressive quality they showed during our negotiations was their humanity. The KSA team was keenly aware of the emotional impact on all the stakeholders involved in selling our 120 year old family company and helped us through those challenges.
Even though we didn’t have a “for sale” sign in the front yard, our partnership with KSA eventually helped us develop and solidify a relationship with US Foods. Bill’s experience with them was an important factor in helping us reach the comfort level we needed to make a deal happen. While selling our family’s business was one of the toughest decisions we’ve ever had to make, it was the right move made at the right time. Bill Beattie, Chris Hagen, and company worked long hours to ensure the best deal for Glover. They were there with us every step of the way and we couldn’t be happier with and the results of our deal.”
