Business Development & Client Success

Jessica Martinka

Working with her dad since 2018 Jessica has quickly become a key component in helping find and match buyers with sellers.. As a key interface between clients and prospective buyers Jessica screens potential matches for our clients to accelerate win-win deals.

Her people skills allow her to quickly screen potential business buyers. When not working she enjoys being on the water, walking with friends, and volunteering, including at Hopelink.

Getting the Deal Done

In the world of M&A (business buy-sell) the deal is the sexy part but there’s no deal without all we do in the “back room.” This includes:

· The use of technology in the ever-more-complex search process to find a good match.
· Analyzing the little things in a company’s non-financial factors (customers, employees, market, trends, suppliers, etc.).
· Attractive and accurate client marketing materials.
· Client communication.
