Jay’s father, Brad, was a serial entrepreneur growing and selling 3 of his own businesses. Brad saw an opportunity to take his real-world knowledge to assist other closely held business owners with their exit strategy. After graduating from Appalachian State with a Finance degree, Jay started Viking M&A with his father in June 1996. In 2015, Jay bought out his father and continued to grow the business opening up additional offices. Today, Viking has 9 offices and is the largest of its kind in the Southeast. Jay continues to be recognized as a trusted top producing business intermediary in the Carolinas, while helping lead and guide the Viking team with record growth. Jay’s dedication and experience, combined with his passion for serving business owners, are found in hundreds of successfully closed transactions and satisfied client testimonials.
Jay has served on the board of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) – Charlotte Chapter, including Vice President and then President. He also has served as chairman of the Department of Finance Board at Appalachian State for over 10 years, helping give back to students at his alma mater.
Jay lives in South Charlotte, and is happily married to Deanna, and have a blended family with 5 children.
