Albert Hakim
The Kensington Company

M&A Specialist, The Kensington Company

Albert Hakim is an Entrepreneur with 25 years of experience across many diverse business segments. He has owned successful retail businesses, a wholesale and distribution company, web-based businesses as well as having spent time in the corporate world as head of corporate sales at a publicly traded company.

He is uniquely qualified to assist in all aspects of business transactions and brings his talent to the Kensington Company.

Sellers of businesses are comfortable speaking to someone who truly understands business, both the complexities and the emotional part of selling one’s business and buyers appreciate his ability to understand their real needs and match a buyer’s skill set to the right business opportunity.

Buyers – People buy businesses for many reasons, they are in career transition, they have been laid off, they want to hedge against a shaky employment market or they just want to take more control over their financial future.  Albert helps his clients identify the real reasons they are looking at business ownership and match them with businesses that fit their objectives.

Sellers – If you are a small to mid-sized company (1-10 million in sales), you really want Albert representing you because he knows how to price, promote and market your business to meet your selling objectives.

Albert has many references from various industries which he can provide, but the most important thing to remember is that he is committed to happy buyers and happy sellers. That is the secret of his success.
