Why Work with a CBI?

What is a CM&AP?
The CBI requires meeting stringent education and performance requirements as well as the high ethical standards of the IBBA. The CM&AP requires achieving in-depth knowledge of the specialized approach required to successfully prepare and execute lower-middle-market transactions (above $1M in EBITDA).  The ABI requires meeting a specified number of years in the business and completed transactions.
