Speaker: H. Barry Goodman, CPA, SVATopic: Transition of Family Business - Perils, Value Drivers and Killers
Presentation Overview: TBA
H. Barry Goodman, CPA
Barry grew up in a business owning family but chose not to go into the family business. He became a Certified Public Accountant and owned his own CPA firm for over 15 years. He then did his own transition to be a partner in a firm that grew to become one of the most successful middle market CPA firms in Chicago. He gained a reputation for his insights into a business’ strengths and challenges and identifying what could hold it back or push it to the next level. The lessons learned from the business owning families Barry served, enabled him to gain a reputation for recognizing a business’ strengths and challenges and identifying what could hold it back or push it to the next level. Seeing business owners make good and poor business and transition choices, made Barry realize that he had a passion for families-in-business, and decided to focus his expertise and hands-on experience on a disciplined approach and process tailored to families and non-family stakeholders.
Barry then decided to focus the expertise he developed and hands-on experienced and formed Birkdale Transition Partners LLC. In 2017 Birkdale merged to form SVA Value Accelerators, a national consulting firm that solely works with closely held businesses to successfully transition their business, enhance value and achieve desired outcomes.
