Stone Capital Consulting is a St. Louis-based, exit-planning firm that specializes in Mergers & Acquisition Advisory and Exit Strategy for lower and middle-market companies. Stone Capital was formed by Zach Sharkey of Gateway Valuation Consulting and Christopher Lawrence Stone of The Blue-Collar Broker. After years of experience in the valuation and intermediary services, respectively, Zach and Chris realized that the lower and middle markets were being massively underserved by the traditional business brokerage model.
We prepare our clients for an exit that will maximize their value, terms, and objectives by offering professional business valuation services, financial & operational analysis, risk management, market readiness, industry trends, market timing, and exit strategy guidance.
At Stone Capital, we leverage our team’s 70+ years of experience to develop tailored strategies that guide our clients through the succession process, starting from the education and discovery phase to preparation, due diligence, and the execution of a successful exit. We stand apart from other firms in the industry by using a proprietary process that delivers wall street quality resources to main street businesses – a comprehensive and consultative approach not found in the markets we serve.
