“We considered selling the company a few years back; but the M&A firm we were speaking with did not share our vision. Knowing the SavATree brand and their success in growth and vision for the future were key factors in changing our decision to sell. Plus, as an ESOP company, the transaction had to be beneficial to our employee shareholders. Because SavATree’s dedicated transition team invested the time to learn how we operate our business, which, unlike their model, is 90% commercial, their offer was ultimately the most aggressive in terms of ROI and future growth potential.
This partnership completes my 50-year journey to cultivate long-term relationships with our customers and employees with a “service and attention to client first” attitude – and provides an ideal exit strategy. I look forward to helping SavATree continue be successful in their mission where and when I can.”
