2018 and 2017 were back-to-back, record-setting years for the company. The total amount of wealth transferred to clients in 2018 was also a record, increasing 11% over prior year. The firm is now closing in on $5 billion in wealth transferred to business owners since its inception.

“I am really proud of the team and their effort last year. We are honored that so many entrepreneurs have trusted us with their businesses,” stated Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer with Generational Group. “2018 finished strong and I believe that we are well positioned for an outstanding 2019.”

“We are very thankful for a successful 2018,” stated Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of the firm. “Our associates are dedicated to helping our clients reach their financial goals, and their hard work is evident in the numbers we achieved last year.
