In the feature article of this issue of Owner to Owner, we sit down with Nicole Sahin, CEO and founder of Globalization Partners, along with two of the firm’s executives – Debbie Millin, chief operating officer, and Nancy Cremins, chief administrative officer and general counsel – to discuss turning a vision to transform how companies do business globally into a reality, instilling and maintaining company culture through rapid growth and coming together to make strategic decisions.

In addition, John Secor, Ajit George, Kyle Gordon and Carson Christus from our Corporate Advisory team discuss family and business factors that come into consideration when debating whether now is the time to sell the family business. Finally, Relationship Manager Reed Smith and Retirement and Trust Associate Matthew Senger break down the differences in setup, administration and contribution limits among three retirement strategies for small-business owners and the self-employed: the SIMPLE IRA, the Solo 401(k) and the SEP IRA. As always, we review the overall economy, credit markets and private equity and mergers and acquisitions markets.
