Prior to founding Aberdeen Advisory, Emery earned his business and financial expertise as a banker, corporate advisor, and president of several companies. He rapidly rose through the ranks at Bank South, and later Merrill Lynch, before becoming an entrepreneur. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Washington and Lee University.
Almost as passionate as he is about helping people sell their business, Emery is also a strong believer in giving back to the community. He is an active member of Leadership Tampa Bay and serves on the Board of Directors of the St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation and ACG Tampa Bay.
From the typical transaction to the highly complex deal, Emery has repeatedly been recognized as a leading Mergers and Acquisitions executive in the Florida market and is well known throughout the South for his ability to connect ideal buyers with sellers. His primary industry focus has been on healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, and business services, but he’s always looking for new opportunities.
Decades of Successful Transactions
Emery created a six-step plan to guide business owners toward a successful merger or acquisition. He specializes in representing companies with annual revenues in the $10-100 million or more range with owners who wish to sell within one to two years.
But, Emery doesn’t do it alone. He accounts most of Aberdeen’s success to the men and women who make up his advisors team. They’re accomplished in negotiations, valuations, marketing, business development, financial analysis, and management.
While the industry average for a successful business sale is typically around 20%, Aberdeen Advisors produce an impressive 83% success ratio. Their connections and decades of experience are key to helping you get the highest price for your business.
