Exit Planning for Business Owners and their Advisors
Specializing in business transitions for Baby Boomer business owners.
MPN Inc. provides extensive exit planning services to Baby Boomer business owners. We also exclusively consult and coach the owners, presidents, CEOs and partners who bear personal responsibility for the organizational success of closely held companies.
We are singularly focused on helping business owners who compete aggressively, play fair, and improve the quality of life for their employees and the community.
Comprehensive exit planning is much more than tax and estate advice. We use a proprietary tool set, The ExitMap®, designed specifically for collaboration between business owners and their professional advisors in assessing the practical business obstacles that might impact a lucrative transition.
