Combined with the significant expertise of its experienced professionals, Veber Partners’ goal is to develop and maintain long-term relationships through quality service, expert advice, and a record of performance in successfully closing acquisitions and ownership transitions, raising new capital, and assisting in corporate strategic alliances and divestitures.

Testimonials

  • "Veber Partners made up of Gayle, Rodger, and Nick, make up a team of seasoned professionals that were a delight to work with throughout the time we worked together. Each partner brings his own special contribution to a business owner who doesn’t have the “foggiest” of what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. I never doubted for a moment that Veber was representing my best interests and getting the best possible deal for me and my family. And while the “11th hour” adjustment of shares between me and others would have caused lesser men chaos, Veber took it in stride."

    George Wilson Former CEO, Eutek Systems
  • "As a small privately owned company, we do not have the need for a full time financial advisor on staff with the skill levels and resources which Veber Partners possess. Their advice and analytical skills have been invaluable to our continued financial success. It is and has been a great pleasure working with Veber Partners.”

    Paula Norman Controller, Washington Alder LLC
  • “You were great at keeping us on task and putting things in proper perspective. Best of all, you helped us obtain our goals without losing our sense of humor.”

    Brian Radditz President, Wanke Cascade
  • "...Not only did you provide excellent advice on values, you developed a competitive bidding environment which was significant in enhancing the price realized for the company. ....Once again you have exceeded my expectations and confirmed my strong belief in the value of your services."

    Walter H. Grebe Partner Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, P.C.
  • “When asked about my experience with Veber Partners, I frequently reply: ‘If they cannot get it done, it cannot be done.' You and your team were able to determine the viability of the ACI acquisition. You stepped up and shared in the risk if the deal could not have been completed. Veber Partners professionally packaged our company to take to the equity market. Various options were available to management through the contacts and presentations that were made. Most importantly, you took the time to learn the dynamics and desires of the management team. The ‘right deal’ for management was important to you. Veber Partners not only gave me a sense of what was possible, but also were able to take those plans and make them real. I could not have done the deal without them.”

    Dick Wilch President and CEO, Associated Chemists
  • “The professionals at Veber Partners became an integral part of our senior management team. They understood our goals and objectives as business owners and negotiated skillfully and effectively on our behalf. Veber Partners helped us command a premium price for our business by allowing us to keep our focus on increasing company revenues while concurrently marketing our business to a national audience. Veber Partners exceeded our expectations and earned their fees many times over"

    Greg Van Pelt CEO, Providence Good Health Plan
