Bill Beaury started SureWay Expediting Inc. with his partner and $750 seed money. SureWay grew to $45,000,000 in revenue during the 20 years before it was sold. The complexities of Government regulation then transitioning to deregulation, adding staff and management, developing technology, financing growth, dealing with recessions, and changing markets all helped Bill prepare for Maven Group. Eventually the company was rolled into a group of companies that went through the Initial Public Offering (IPO) process. The experience of it all was priceless. Read More…

We could not have sold our company to Schindler in 2018 without Maven Group guiding us through the process. Dominik and Bill set up a very competitive bid situation between various potential buyers. Thanks to their preparation we went through a smooth diligence process without any of the problems of which we heard from other owners who were in similar situations without committed professional help.
We have always focused on running a tight ship and on keeping our books in order long before we even thought of selling our business. But when we closed our deal with OTIS in 2018 we really needed Maven Group’s industry expertise to make it all happen. Dominik and Bill not only provided great advice throughout the entire process but offered hands on help on all the little details from day 1 throughout closing.
Knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy – Dominik and Bill were absolutely indispensable partners in the acquisition process. When I started the process of buying Elevator Service Inc. in 2016, one of my first phone calls went to Maven Group. I had known Dominik for many years and respected his abilities in this industry. Engaging Dominik for this process was one of the best decisions I could have made. I would go so far as to say the deal would not have happened without the expert guidance of the Maven Group.
