After thoroughly researching selling my elevator business myself, and interviewing multiple experienced investment bankers in the industry, Maven Group was the clear choice when I went to market in 2021 and ultimately sold my company to 3PHASE Elevator. I had high expectations based on the Maven reputation and those expectations were far exceeded. After delivering a targeted set of qualified buyers whose plans for the company aligned with where I wanted to see it go, Maven Group followed through with meticulous management of LOI negotiations, due diligence, and closing while constantly looking out for my interests every step of the way in areas I would have overlooked.

We hired Maven Group for various consulting projects over the years, so I never thought twice about teaming up with them when I sold my company in 2021. We could not have closed our transaction with American Elevator Group without Maven Group’s help. Professional, honest, straight forward, Maven kept us ahead of the game from the first conversations with potential buyers until closing.

We engaged Maven Group in 2020 and sold our business to Slade/SCHINDLER. Dominik and Bill prepared us during various in-person meetings and helped us select the best buyer by creating a competitive bid environment. They also guided us through the diligence process and supported our attorney at all the critical junctions of the transaction. We could not have sealed the deal without Maven Group’s professional help!

We thank Bill and Dominik for all their help when we sold our business in 2019. They organized all our data and set up one on one meetings with a wide array of potential buyers. During the stressful last phase when push came to shove, their perspective and guidance were much appreciated and needed, they really helped us stay the course until the finish line.

While Vice President for Otis Elevator, with responsibly covering the Midwest United States, I had the good fortune to work with Dominik Sachenheimer. Dominik provided financial leadership and oversight and served as a true business partner. There are very few in the industry who understand the ins and outs of an elevator company’s operational and financial needs better than Dominik who continuously demonstrated strategic leadership paired with rigorous attention to detail allowing him to guide senior executives, branch managers, sales staff and supervisors alike in over 25 states across the country.
