Meet the Founders Tommy West & Ben Brickweg

Tommy and Ben offer effective, field-tested approaches for preparing for and selling a business, delivered in their straightforward, no-nonsense fashion.  

After Tommy sold his first business when he was younger, he realized that the business brokerage and M&A system was broken . . . even as a licensed business attorney and experienced business owner, he struggled to get that first deal done.  

Ben grew up working in big business brokerage and M&A cutting his teeth on 100s of business deals, but he also suffered through the broken system, which is what led him to law school, then to start his own M&A firm.  

Tommy & Ben knew there must be a better way . . . that's why they teamed up to create the SmartExit System.

A history of caring

Our team-based, process-driven system not only helps business owners sell their business more efficiently and with better results, but also helps them better understand the process so they can make the best decisions for themselves, their business and their family.  

To do that, we emphasize using simple, direct language, and we believe strongly in keeping things transparent and understandable. That's why we want all business owners to read a copy of our FREE book.
