What Clients Say

"The process of working with Wipfli Corporate Finance on this deal was very smooth and educational. The sale to CED was going to allow us to maintain our independence and continue building our brand that we’ve worked hard to build. It gives us additional horsepower to grow the in the Chicago market."

Vito Pelagio,

founder of Amperage Electrical Supply, Inc.

"Where I thought Wipfli Corporate Finance really shined was being able to get more money than I originally anticipated. Most of our first bids were under $20 million, but it was terrific that we found a synergistic buyer in The Container Store. And if we had not been able to get it done by the Friday before New Year’s Eve, we might not have gone ahead. It was a thoroughly pleasant experience, and I can retire now, knowing we got the results we wanted and then some."

Frank Happ,

former chairman of Closet Works

"Making the decision to sell our 74-year-old family-owned businesses wasn’t easy, but when we decided to move forward, Wipfli Corporate Finance proved to be the best partner. They helped us navigate each step of the sale process and were heavily involved in managing everything from buyer due diligence requests to negotiating the final purchase agreement. Their high level of involvement limited the burden of the sale process on our management team, enabling them to continue running the businesses."

Russ Benson,

former owner, Security Door & Hardware Co. and Security Builders Supply Co.

"Wipfli has that specialized knowledge and experience that allows us to use them for pretty much everything we need."

Grant Schwieters,

owner of Schwieters Auto Group
