Working with Catherine Oak has been a wonderful experience – and I highly
recommend Catherine for valuation and as our front-end negotiator.   We
began to consider options to take our firm to the next level, and Catherine
helped us plan the path for success.  

The end result was a very desirable multiple with a substantial addition in value added services, customer support, and leadership.  We simply love our new direction.   

A $1mm+ revenue firm our size is not a large firm by any means, but Catherine went
the extra mile to make sure the path forward was smooth and pain minimized.
Merging or Acquiring an insurance firm is a huge life event, and I can think
of no better partner to guide anyone forward than Catherine Oak and her

Thank you Catherine!
