North Star Business Systems
Mr. Gottsacker is a nationally recognized authority on small business sales, M&A and Exit Strategy Planning.
He holds a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Minnesota. He has earned a Six Sigma Black Belt and Series 7 and Series 66 Securities licenses. He satisfied the practical experience requirements and passed the Certified Business Intermediary examination in 2002. He has held Senior and Executive positions in the Manufacturing, Financial Services and Information Technology Industries working for companies ranging in size from small business to Fortune 500 firms. While working as a Certified Business Intermediary, he discovered there was no inexpensive and reliable system available to business owners seeking to independently plan and execute a successful exit strategy. He also discovered that most of his clients came to the selling process with inadequate preparation and planning, resulting in significantly less than optimal prospects for selling their business at the highest possible valuation. The Exit Strategy System is his solution to that problem.
