Why IBA – A Past Client Perspective

Jul 13, 2016

International Business Associates, commonly known as IBA, celebrated its 40 year anniversary as the premier business brokerage firm in the Pacific Northwest in 2015. Starting in 1975 with our first completed transaction, IBA built a strong reputation for providing knowledgeable, experienced representation of entrepreneurs selling businesses one transaction at a time. A successful achievement that has been repeated over 4000 times by our transaction team. This reputation along with the one for facilitating transactions with integrity employing best practices are our greatest assets. A corporate decision was made in 2016 to enhance the information being conveyed by word a mouth in the legal, accounting, and banking communities and available online about IBA to include video. B47 Studios, www.b47studios.com, was engaged to create the videos and Laura Jean Cronin selected as the executive producer. Ms. Cronin recognized early in the storyboard process associated with the production of the videos that IBA’s large number of past clients willing to serve as references and offer testimonials about their experiences selling companies represented by IBA offered an unparalleled source of material for the videos and the ability to convey IBA’s strengths as a business brokerage firm from a client’s perspective rather than traveling down the traditional path of a business brokerage firm telling what they can do for you.

I am pleased to be able to share with you IBA’s first video. I believe it tells who we are as a firm, as well as any of our associates can articulate in a first meeting with an entrepreneur thinking about selling their privately held company or family owned business in Washington, Oregon, or Alaska. I also want to convey my deep appreciation to Kevin Maude, Laura Jean Cronin, and the rest of the B47 Studios team for their vision, technical excellence, and the quality of the videos produced in your studios.

IBA, the Pacific Northwest’s premier business brokerage firm since 1975, is available as an information resource to the media and the mergers & acquisitions community on confidentiality and any other subjects relevant to the purchase & sale of a business.
