Peter Siegel, MBA, Founder and President of BizBuyFinancing, has been assisting business buyers, owner/sellers and intermediaries to obtain business purchase financing since 1990. In addition to his role in assisting entrepreneurs with preparation, presentation and follow-up for loan/financing requests, Siegel's experience in the small business marketplace includes starting, buying and selling several of his own companies.
He has been involved in thousands of business sales transactions as a business broker& intermediary, SBA Loansmall business counselor and business appraiser. Perhaps most importantly, he is Founder and President of BizBen.com--currently the oldest online resource for business buyers, sellers, and professionals serving the business for sale marketplace.
A graduate of UCLA School of Business with a Master's Degree in Finance and Entrepreneurship, Mr. Siegel is creator of the ProBuy & ProSell method of buying and selling small businesses. In addition, he is the author of countless articles and six books and eBooks on buying and selling businesses. Currently, he is also a syndicated author of several blogs. He has been interviewed extensively on the topics of buying, selling and financing small business deals by the broadcast and print media. He has been quoted in a number of leading metropolitan newspapers and business periodicals, including the Wall Street Journal, Business Times, Los Angeles Times, Small Business Journals, San Francisco Chronicle and Forbes Small Business.
Mr. Siegel has introduced several innovative methods to help clients succeed in the business acquisition financing marketplace. Among them is Professional Prequalification, a program that prepares the client to be completely "approval-ready" for the 32 most frequently used underwriting criteria. This preparation remains effective for as long as it takes the client to successfully conclude a transaction. Another innovative practice is exclusive client representation, making sure that all clients are personally represented and cared for.
Additionally, he has been instrumental in advancing the "business purchase prequalification" trend. This enables owner/sellers to benefit in several ways when they seek preapproval for their businesses from both SBA-backed and commercial lenders.
