Charlie Cole helps entrepreneurs buy, sell and appraise businesses. I’m a business broker and valuation specialist with a diversity of experience in the private, closely held business arena. Having worked in large corporate environments, but primarily in small and family owned businesses, I have a comprehensive business background spanning over 40 years, which includes experience in startups as well as established entities. I spent a large portion of my career as President of manufacturing and service firms and also served on the boards of both state and nationally chartered banks. My experience comes from direct hands-on management, ownership, valuation and transfer of small companies.
As founder and President of Cole & Company, Inc., a firm that offers business intermediary services, business valuations and machinery & equipment appraisals; I have consulted, valued and transferred ownership of manufacturing, service, energy, medical, agricultural, retail, distribution and professional practice firms throughout the United States. I’ve been awarded several prestigious designations including; Lifetime Certified Business Intermediary (“CBI”) by the International Business Brokers Association, Business Certified Appraiser (“BCA”) by the International Society of Business Appraisers and Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (“CMEA”) by the NEBB Institute. These designations are held by a select group of individuals located throughout the U.S. and around the world offering business valuation and transfer expertise to Entrepreneurs, Lenders, Attorneys, CPA’s, Governmental Agencies and Business Buyers and Sellers. I support entrepreneurial clients throughout Colorado, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona with national and international business brokerage and appraisal services.
