Tom is a Merger & Acquisition Intermediary specializing in representing sellers and buyers of Commercial Building Maintenance Services, which includes all aspects of building maintenance such as commercial janitorial, window washing, HVAC, landscaping, parking lot sweeping etc. Tom also specializes in metal fabrication businesses as well as other types of related manufacturing businesses. Tom’s 30+ years of business ownership, and the subsequent sale of his businesses, gives him a deep understanding of what an owner is going through when contemplating the sale of his/her business. His multiple ownership experiences give him the ability to advise sellers on how to prepare the business for sale. These experiences have underscored for Tom the importance of building and quarterbacking a team of professionals (transaction attorney, real property and estate attorneys, wealth managers, CPAs and tax specialists) to make sure his clients get to keep the lion’s share of the price received for the business. Along with his association with M&A Business Advisors, Tom brings a wealth of experience that he can tap at any time the need arises. See Tom’s experience below.

2017 to present – Tom joined M&A Business Advisors after vetting other M&A firms. He is currently specializing in the area of manufacturing and enjoys the interaction with the owners and management teams with whom he has built relationships.

2005 – 2017 After selling his companies he joined his brother’s scrap metal business, Charron Metals. Besides helping run certain parts of the company, Tom became the sales manager overseeing over 300 local manufacturing companies and creating deep relationships with quite a few owners and managers of these companies.

1996 – 2004 Tom opened a successful scrap metal business in Sacramento with a partner, running it for 8 years after which they sold the company to Sims Metals, a publicly traded worldwide leader in the recycling field.

1993 – 2001 Tom purchased an existing manufacturing company when the opportunity presented itself. It was a 100,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Texas manufacturing pallet racking and shelving systems. Products were shipped nationally to other retailers as well as supplying our own locations.

1984 – 2004 Tom started a material handling company and ran the company for 20 years prior to selling. During this period, Tom opened locations in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Reno employing up to 62 people and growing the business to over $14 million in annual sales.

Tom has a solid reputation based on honesty and integrity, two fundamental ingredients for a successful and lasting relationship with clients and colleagues. His experience, persistence, strong negotiating skills, communication style, contract knowledge, networking and reputation are all utilized in the M&A field.

Tom’s current business success with M&A Business Advisors is built upon past clients and the trust that has been created over many years between him and other business owners. Contact Tom for a complimentary consultation at Tom@mabusinessadvisors.com or 408-891-5440
