A Team To Be Proud Of – Nedrow Business Advisors
As the Owner of Nedrow Business Advisors (NBA), Craig brings a unique business model to the M&A world. Polar opposite of most firms, he cares nothing about the ‘number’ of listings the firm signs. Nedrow Business Advisors model is; “YOUR GOALS ARE OUR GOALS.” We believe in a hands on, personal approach to selling your business.” After 20 years of corporate America Craig entered the Mergers & Acquisition industry. Nedrow Business Advisors was founded in 2016 with a much simpler approach to the selling of businesses. Voted ‘M&A Advisor of the Year’ in 2017, Craig is personally involved in every transaction. He has developed an extensive network of Private Investors, Private Equity Groups, Bankers, Financial Advisors and M&A Attorneys to assist any business owner in selling their company. The approach at NBA is simple; “We believe this is a people business and a relationship business. Business owners are real people and the sale of their business is a ‘life changing’ event. We understand how important this event is.” Craig has been involved in Youth, Men’s, and Prison Ministry for the last 18 years. He is the Founder of Craig Nedrow Ministries, and Stand Up 4 Jesus Ministries. Craig has two radio programs (one business and one ministry) that air weekly.
