The Director of IBA’s Hospitality Industry transaction division, Oliver Kotelnikov, recently participated in the second of a two part webinar series for the Washington Hospitality on preparing, selling, and buying a restaurant, bar, or hotel. Mr. Kotelnikov and IBA are recognized as market leaders in terms of knowledge & experience in the Pacific Northwest related to the “sell side” representation of business owners in the sale of privately held companies and family businesses with both having a reputation for employing “best practices” including maintaining an environment of confidentiality throughout the sale process.
