David Shavzin
David advises business owners on growth and successful exit / succession planning. He is a consultant and coach with 25+ years of experience in exit planning, mergers & acquisitions, operations, and business process improvement.

Business owners start their companies to create their future. But they soon get so caught up in the day-to-day that they lose sight of the key to making that future happen - building value - and are unprepared when the time comes to put their transition into action.

David helps business owners grow their business today, getting the plan in place and staying focused on the process. This builds value, allowing them to make this important transition on their own terms. It allows them to become attractive to potential buyers. David helps businesses create the right advisory team, understand value, work in a focused manner to build value and plan for that eventual exit.

His early career included banking and financial roles, followed by a position on Freddie Mac's corporate planning team. David then spent 12 years with Aventis. This included four years in Europe in corporate finance and global mergers and acquisitions work. He was later appointed Vice President of Operations & Finance for a North American subsidiary, his last role before creating his consulting practice in 2000.
