Philip Davis
Business Intermediary

For eighteen years Philip was an independent contractor for one of the World’s largest and most respected nonprofit organizations. It was his responsibility to oversee public relations, marketing, personnel supervision and facilities management for operations ranging from two to five million dollars. He was personally responsible for meeting payrolls for a staff of more than 70, managing a fleet of vehicles including 12 tucks, budgeting and of course any an all crisis management. Through it all, all the stress and joys, involved in the entrepreneurial life he discovered the secret to success and his passion: facilitating mutually beneficial relationships between even the most adverse parties. 

At times this could be emotionally draining as each party naturally contended for their best interest but Philip discovered he was ideally “wired” to absorb and diffuse this natural tension to facilitate highly productive negotiations. Throughout his career he managed to forge quality partnerships with the even most unlikely of parties. Now it’s his passion to bring the right parties together to see that great companies continue to prosper.

Daniel Aleksa
Business Intermediary

I became a business broker because I believe the crowning achievement for any business owner is the transition of ownership. This is the point when their years of sacrifice are validated, that the entity they’ve built can and will carry on past them. They become among the small percentage of businesses sold as opposed to business closed. I want to help facilitate that transition and in so doing, celebrate that achievement with the business owners.

I’ve owned a brick and mortar fitness and supplement company for over 10 years. I’m intimately familiar with various challenges that arise with business ownership. My role as your broker is to be your most trusted advisor and consummate professional. I value honesty more than anything and am committed to doing a job done right the first time.

Let’s get your business sold!

Daniel graduated from Gettysburg College with a Bachelors in Business Management and resides in Warminster, PA with his wife and 3 children. In his spare time he enjoys reading, Philadelphia sports and carpentry.
