With nearly a decade of experience as an online business broker, I have represented every type of internet business and experienced nearly every sort of challenge. Therefore, I am well-versed in all sorts of businesses and deal structures and have the creative ability to problem solve. Additionally, I am always responsive to my clients needs and go out of my way to make each and every transaction smooth for them.
It is important to truly understand what is most important to the buyer and seller of each transaction. There are multiple aspects and variables to each deal and many times what is most important to a seller differs to what is most important to a buyer. Therefore, there are concessions that can be made on both sides that do not have to feel like a “zero-sum game”. I love managing a deal and especially the negotiation process, where I have been told by my clients that I excel.
I enjoy spending time with my family (have 3 kids) and have coached my boys’ basketball teams for many years. I also enjoy playing tennis and biking.

I worked with Doug and Lenny through an extensive exit process of ~9 months. I am genuinely so thankful to have had these guys as my brokers. Incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. Always a phone call away for any... read more of my questions. This was my first exit, so of course I had a lot of questions they’ve heard hundreds of times. Despite that, never an ounce of reluctance to help me out, even if they were silly questions. The process of finding my brokers was a bit stressful, and the biggest factor for finding the right fit was trust. Once I got on a call with these two I immediately knew I could trust them. Even though it was a long process, they made it an easy process for me through their hard work and dedication. Highly recommend these two, and I’m looking forward to working with them on my next exit.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Doug Grindstaff and Lenny Farber at Website Closers during an M&A transaction in which I acquired an e-commerce company. Although Doug and Lenny were the seller’s investment bankers and I was the... read more buyer, their roles were absolutely critical in the successful completion of the deal.
Navigating through the complexities of mergers and acquisitions requires skill, professionalism, and exceptional communication abilities. Both Doug and Lenny exhibited these qualities in Spades. They were instrumental in educating the seller about the process, aligning expectations, and driving the deal forward at every stage.
In transactions of this nature, it’s not uncommon for contentious moments to arise. It was in these moments that Doug and Lenny’s true value became apparent. Their ability to diffuse potentially challenging issues through clear communication, calm professionalism, and fair negotiation ensured that both parties remained focused on the ultimate goal.
Even though they were representing the seller, they understood the importance of balance and collaboration between both sides. Good investment bankers make a world of difference in M&A transactions, and Doug and Lenny undoubtedly fall into this category.
I look forward to working with them again in our next transaction, whether on the buying or selling side. Their contribution, not just in technical expertise but in facilitating a smooth and transparent process, has left a lasting impression.
I wholeheartedly recommend Doug and Lenny at Website Closers for anyone involved in similar transactions. Their integrity, communication skills, and commitment to a successful outcome set them apart in this highly competitive field.
