Even if you aren’t planning to sell or expand your business anytime soon, now may be the best time to start preparing for when that day comes.

M&A experts Duane Jackson, co-founder and managing partner of Author Capital Partners, and Russell Logan, managing director and founder of Freeman Logan M&A Brokers Advisors, explained how businesses like theirs can help IT channel business owners plan for a future they may not be considering, but should definitely be prepared for.

The two advisors spoke with Channel Insider’s Katie Bavoso at Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2024.
