Jason is a former corporate attorney who provided counsel to both mid-market and Fortune 500 companies. He also served as General Manager for one of the largest digital marketing firms in the industry. Destined for leadership, his tenacity and drive led to his founding of United Commerce Group, Inc., a parent company for numerous web properties which includes GunSafes.com, Saunas.com, MassageCharis.com, and Melondipity.com.
The combined experiences gained over the years as both a small business owner and corporate attorney lead to the development of Website Closers, LLC. Jason felt there was a need in the market of growing online business owners for experienced brokers that understand the internal aspects of daily operations behind an internet business.
The difference between Website Closers, LLC, and other brokerage firms is a combination of unparalleled service and the experience of building an internet business from the ground up. Traditional business brokers simply don’t have the same understanding of the many nuances between an online business versus a brick-and-mortar one. They often miss valuable aspects that an online business might have which increases its’ overall worth on the market when it is time to sell. Website Closers fights tirelessly for every ounce of value.
Ron has over two decades of experience in buying and selling online companies. He is a pioneer in the industry and for several years was affiliated with the largest business brokerage in the world. Consistently in the Top 10 brokers in the country, Ron has won numerous awards and has earned a reputation as one of the top internet business brokers in the U.S.
His journey into business started in 1985 after he left UCLA Film School to launch his first business. Off The Wall was an Art and Framing Gallery in Colorado Spring which he opened that year. He successfully expanded operations into a retail chain of over 20 stores with locations in Denver, Las Vegas, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Maryland, and Florida. Along with Off The Wall, Ron owned many other stores including Thomas Kinkade Signature Galleries, Dixies Hot Cinnabuns, and Bearly Camelot.
In 2002, Ron took a break from the business world to travel and play golf. The entrepreneur bug stayed with him, and in 2005 he attempted to get back into business making four offers to buy businesses. Those offers all failed due to a lack of diligence. This sparked a realization that numerous brokers in the industry were inept at providing the level of service an experienced buyer would need. They didn’t properly understand the field of battle before making an offer. If he was ever going to purchase a business, he would need to become a broker himself. This led to the successful purchase of two companies, however, Ron found that he not only excelled as a broker but enjoyed the challenge of the process. The creation of his own brokerage firm took place shortly thereafter.
Part of his success was based on understanding that even the strongest leader surrounds themselves with talented, and knowledgeable people. By enlisting a team of professions who were top in their fields, which includes Certified Public Accountants, Banking and Financial experts, Evaluation Companies, and Due Diligence Experts, Ron was able to rise to the top of the competitive internet business brokers field.
