Later this month on August 16, Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO, will be a guest speaker at Jim Huston’s outstanding summer event in Park City.

The theme of the meeting will be on how to build a great company with discussions centering on methods, systems and strategies that make a landscape, irrigation or tree care company rock solid, a great place to work, and ways to take the company to the next level of performance.

“My speaking will be on mergers and acquisition and what it takes to make a company attractive to a buyer,” said Tom Fochtman. “I will focus on what it takes to build value, essentials such as maximizing EBITDA, accounting best practices, LOIs, the importance of strong management teams, capital expenditures, route density and more. There has never been a better time to get the most value, or the highest price for lawn & landscape businesses.”

Tom went on to say that In challenging times like these discovering and learning best practices, the best people and having the right tools and ideas are essential for maintaining your competitive advantage, transforming your business, and getting it in tip-top shape for a sale –even if you do not intend to sell your business. The practice of thinking and acting AS IF you intend to sell will make you a better company and take you to a higher level.

“What I love about Jim Huston’s events is that they are always about the best practices to be in, not the common stuff, or good enough steps to take, but the best practices or actions to be in,” said Tom. “This is all about producing competitive advantage, to give you an edge and to drive the value of your business up and up.”

Stay tuned for highlights from the event later this month.
