  • IBA Webinar Part Two: Successful transition of ownership

    Nov 18, 2021

    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. IBA has received multiple requests from entrepreneurs and collaborative partners for access to the interview. The content of that interview is provided here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DNVUhPByIc  If you find this content beneficial, you are encouraged to learn more about the Washington Hospitality Association (https://wahospitality.org/), an organization IBA has supported & been a resource for prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Washington Hospitality Association is considered the premier trade organization for its industry in Washington and is led by Anthony Anton.

    IBA, the Pacific Northwest’s premier business brokerage firm since 1975, is available as an information resource to the media, business brokerage, mergers & acquisitions, real estate, and entrepreneurial communities on subjects relevant to the purchase & sale of privately held companies and family owned businesses. IBA is recognized as one of the best business brokerage firms in the nation based on its long track record of successfully negotiating “win-win” business sale transactions in environments of full disclosure employing “best practices”.
