Vessel Assist, Marine Salvage and Recovery Company located in South Miami and Key Biscayne Sold to New Owner by Way of Viking Mergers & Acquisitions Florida Division
A successful Vessel Assist, Marine Salvage and Recovery Company servicing South Miami and Key Biscayne, Florida for over two decades, has been sold by way of Viking Mergers & Acquisitions Florida Division, a well-known business brokerage firm serving business owners in the Southeast United States. Daniel Martin, the previous owner, knew it was time to take the next step in his long-term career and decided to sell the business that he had built and grown over the years.
Martin contacted Viking M&A Florida Division to facilitate the sale. The transaction was successfully completed by Christian Aunspaugh, Senior Advisor of Viking M&A Florida Division, under the direction of Larry Lawson, President of Viking M&A Florida Division. “The team at Viking Mergers & Acquisitions are true professionals. Having worked with them before, I knew the level of professionalism that I would get when I made the decision to sell my business. True to form, they went through the business from top to bottom and when they were done, they knew it as well as I did. Then they were able to match me with a qualified buyer whom they had already pre-screened, and who was the perfect fit to take over the operation,” says Martin.
The company was sold to Eduardo Barreto, an experienced entrepreneur that spent 15+ years within the telecommunications industry acting as Vice President for the Latin America market, developing and implementing business plan and strategies for distribution, channel development, product management, and sales. Barreto had formed a long-term relationship with Viking M&A and had prior experience in running a business, managing employees and business operations, and possessed a positive entrepreneurial attitude. Barreto also held the appropriate licensing and boating experience that was required to purchase the business. Martin was very pleased with Barreto’s background and knew that he was the ideal fit for the business. Barreto plans to increase sales and the customer base of the business in order to expand to different channels.
