To ensure local owners achieve their goals, a collaborative group of Miami leaders are coming together to launch a chapter that educates the marketplace on business growth and transition.

"We will come together to support and educate business owners and their advisors on how to optimize outcomes for all stakeholders during the exit process." – Diego Obando, President Miami Chapter

    MIAMI, FL, September 19, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Exit Planning Institute™, in cooperation with a collaborative team of top advisors and leaders from the Miami marketplace, are joining forces to launch the Exit Planning Institute Miami Chapter on October 14, 2022, hosted at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay, The Watson Island Ballroom (Floor 2), 1633 N Bayshore Dr, Miami, FL 33132. This local chapter is different than many other networking professional organizations in the market. The EPI Chapter is cross-functional, meaning that it attracts and engages advisors, experts, thought leaders, media, and business owners from diverse backgrounds. These leaders engage in exit planning and value acceleration education that ensures the continuity of the local marketplace and improves the success rates for transitioning businesses as owners look towards their future.

As evident in the vast amount of recent research studies, including the State of Owner Readiness™ Survey, the U.S. landscape is set to transition six million businesses over the next 5-10 years. Baby boomer business owners are reaching retirement at a rapid rate, and these same owners own 66% of all companies in the United States of America. According to recent research conducted by EPI, most baby boomer owners have not accounted for their ultimate exit transition. Statistics show that only two out of ten businesses on the market sell. Without proper planning, owners run the risk of getting a lower price for their business than they need or even worse, they fail to sell at all.

"Selling your business is arguably the most culmination of your career. Planning and preparing for this process is crucial to reaching an advantageous conclusion for the business owner. There is a clear need for improved exit preparation, which is why I am delighted to start the Miami Chapter of the Exit Planning Institute alongside my esteemed partners. We will come together to cooperate with, support, and educate business owners and their trusted advisors on how to optimize outcomes for all stakeholders during the exit process."

– Diego Obando, CEPA, AWMA, AAMS, President, Miami Chapter

The EPI Chapter Network creates a forum where the local community of professional advisors can collaborate and address the unique needs of their community. Chapters develop educational programs for business owners and professional advisors that build awareness and better prepare an owner for the successful exit of their business. The purpose of the EPI Chapter Network is to create, encourage, and foster the adoption of best practices in the exit planning profession. Chapters promote the common interests of business advisors engaged in exit planning.

The EPI Miami Chapter will host monthly meetings and encourages your ongoing participation.
