Exit Consulting Group is pleased to welcome Lamar Rutherford as a Director overseeing our business brokering division. Lamar brings a wealth of experience having sold over 40 businesses in various industries including medical, manufacturing & distribution, childcare, online services, retail and more.
As someone who has also founded and sold her own businesses, Lamar is well-equipped to help owners evaluate all their exit options, whether that be an internal sale to an employee or family member, an ESOP, liquidation, a sale to a third party, or some other choice. As a former CPA, Lamar understands the tax implications, financing considerations, risks and other implications of each option, which helps business owners understand the full impact of their decision.
Her experience as a top agent makes Lamar the perfect fit as we prepare businesses for sale and work with business owners and their advisors to make sure the business is ready; that there are no surprises during the due diligence process, the owner gets the best choice for their goals, and the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
Lamar has an MBA from Dartmouth and currently teaches entrepreneurship at the Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego. She is passionate about helping business owners successfully exit their businesses and we are thrilled to have her on board.
