“When selling a business, there are many issues that can suddenly arise. (Managing Partner) Bill balances things, he weighs them out. I really appreciate that about him,” said Truan. “I think he did an outstanding job of preparing us for what he felt could happen throughout the process. And many of the things he prepared us for actually did happen. Bill was always accessible and empathetic, he understood that for our family, this business was like our baby.”
