Webinar: Selling Your Business from Pre-Planning to Post Sale

Exit strategy planning is often overlooked in an overall business strategy, but it plays an integral role in determining the future for you and your company. Selling your business is one of many types of exit strategies.  Given the current robust market situation, now may be a better time than ever to sell.

In the third part of our webinar series on exit strategy planning for businesses, we present three case studies that will cover the different phases of the exit strategy.
  1. Early stage planning for the exit
  2. Executing the exit (when you have letter of intent from the purchaser)
  3. Asset management/Income Replacement


John Asbury
(President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlantic Union Bankshares)

John is a Virginia native and had a long and fulfilling career in a large bank environment before deciding he was ready to be a part of a smaller institution where he could better make an impact and lead strategic direction. His 30-year career has taken him coast to coast, and he is excited to be recreating something that has not existed in nearly 20 years – a Virginia-based regional bank.

Jess started out his career as an analyst with a major financial institution perfecting the craft of digging into companies, moved to the investment management consulting business where understanding proper asset allocation was key, and spent 12 years running a hedge fund and honing his macro skills. He brings all that experience to Wealth Management in his role of Chief Investment Officer and Director of Asset Management Services.
