Anne Caruso, Manager
Vice Chair Membership
Having sold the business she and her husband owned for 17 years, Anne Caruso brings passion and first-hand experience to the journey of entrepreneurs looking to sell their businesses. While advocating for her clients’ best interests, she never forgets how personal it can be to take that next step, and her empathy, communication, and inside knowledge of the process bring confidence and peace of mind to every seller she touches. Always willing to ‘tell it as it is,’ Anne is readily available, and happy to lend an ear during what’s often a stressful period. She knows that closing the deal comes down to people, and also how best to bring them together for mutual benefit.
Anne focuses on learning her clients’ business stories. Those connections are what make her great at delivering tangible results. She eschews traditional, pushy sales techniques in favor of what really matters – building trust and comfort among her clients. For example, unlike other business brokers she’s worked with, she never takes anything up-front. Only when a successful deal is done does she get paid. And she puts a premium on confidentiality, a frequent cause of concern to business owners looking toward their next chapter.
Skilled in communications, networking and multitasking, Anne is most proud of her ability to work with solopreneurs, minority business owners, small businesses, medium businesses, and multi-generational family businesses alike to help owners achieve the lifestyle their hard work has earned.
