Our Clients Say it All

Best Fit For Our Company

“After meeting with Sam, we felt he had our best interests at heart. He was very careful to put together the best fit for our company to a buyer looking to expand into our marketplace. Our company was ready to be taken to the next level of expansion and Sam introduced us to the best company that had the resources, funding and vision to take it there. Anytime we had a question or needed reassuring Sam was only a phone call away. He helped us through one of the most important decisions a business owner could make. We are 100% satisfied with Sam’s service and would highly recommend him to any company thinking about selling or buying.”

The best possible arrangement for the sale of our business

“We met Bob Cohen of R. A. Cohen Consulting several years before asking them to help us sell our company. During that time we got to know each other very well and succeeded in building a strong relationship before taking on the largest and most important business transaction of our lives. It was a wise investment of our time and we have encouraged others, when possible, to consider doing the same.

Bob and his Partner, Sam Sacco, were great. They were always knowledgeable and developed several creative approaches, giving us a range of options to consider before deciding how to proceed. They were thorough and highly professional in every aspect of this transaction. They worked hard to help us identify elements of our business that could have been easily overlooked and bring them into the negotiation process. As a result, our buyer willingly paid for what they valued and we retained ownership of what might have been simply swept up in the process.

We believe Bob’s and Sam’s experience, expert advice and meticulous attention to details like this were key in creating the smooth transition of ownership of our business we experienced. We fully believe they were instrumental in guiding us to the best possible arrangement for the sale and continued success of our company.

Rarely are we so happy to pay an Invoice, but we paid Bob’s with huge smiles on our faces knowing our trust had been well placed. Bob and Sam are consummate pros who know the deal only gets done when all parties are satisfied. If you are thinking about selling or buying a staffing business we encourage you to give them a call.”

Prompt and Professional

“When I thought of finding an intermediary to sell my business, finding Sam was nothing less than a blessing. His input and suggestions were always positive and at no point he rushed me to do things. For every single phone call and email, his response was prompt and professional. If I have to do it all over again, I will call him in a heartbeat. Thanks, Sam.”

Dr. A Majeed Qasim, DPT, President, Cumberland Therapy Services

Outstanding Experience

“Sam found a qualified buyer who wrote a letter of intent after review of the R. A. Cohen Consulting presentation and one telephone meeting with Sam and I. Sam was invaluable in helping negotiate the purchase agreement and during the arduous process of the do diligence required in selling our staffing company Sam was always available for consultation for me or any of the team. Sam helped us negotiate a multiple much higher than we thought we might receive when we first started discussing the sale of our business. I would highly recommend Sam and R. A. Cohen Consulting to represent any staffing company in a purchase, merger or acquisition.

Intimate Knowledge of the Staffing Industry

“A couple of years ago, I began a review of business brokers that could represent me in the sale of my industrial staffing business. I choose Sam Sacco and his associates based on his intimate knowledge of the staffing industry and their track record of success. Shortly after we took the business to market, the recession hit and I chose to suspend the listing until our business profitability had returned to pre-recession levels. Within a couple of months Sam brought me multiple offers for the business all within our target sale price range. He guided me through the due diligence process and we ultimately closed the sale in June, 2011.
I would highly recommend Sam and his associates for their professionalism, their attention to detail and their ability to get results.”

Wealth of Good Info

“Bob is an extremely knowledgeable consultant in the staffing industry. Some consultants only can “talk the talk” but Bob walks the walk too.
Bob is a wealth of good info when it comes to M & A activity, and is a patient advisor to see complicated deals get done.

I strongly recommend Bob Cohen.”

David Schek, President, leaststaff

Professional, Creative, Thorough

“Bob and the people he surrounds himself with are totally professional, creative and thorough in every way. Bob is a rainmaker!”

– Bruce Stewart, worked with R.A. Cohen Consulting while at Serebra

Experts in Staffing Valuation

I had the pleasure of working with Sam Sacco during a split up of my company. Sam had the arduous task of presenting an objective valuation of the company as a whole and also by separate geographic regions. He was extremely thorough and very detailed in his analysis. His longtime industry experience and constant pulse on today’s market further qualifies him as expert in valuing a staffing business.

– Eric Feinstein, Balance Staffing

Negotiated a win/win solution

“My wife and I were very pleased with the services of R.A. Cohen Consulting. Bob and Sam provided excellent advice and guidance through the entire sales process. They negotiated a win/win solution and we were delighted with the outcome. We highly recommend the services of R. A. Cohen Consulting.”

– Timothy J. Harrington, President, Qualified Resources International

Exceeded our expectations

” R. A. Cohen Consulting brokered the sale of our company, CoreLink Staffing Services, Inc (CSS). The deal closed in February, 2006. We were very pleased with their efforts. R. A. Cohen Consulting exceeded our expectations! Bob and Sam found a qualified buyer and negotiated a fair price and the terms we wanted within four months. We have worked with Bob and Sam in the past and they have consistently demonstrated the highest level of knowledge, skill, experience and integrity.”

– Linda J. Haesler, President, CoreLink Staffing

The kind of people you can place your trust in to do the best for you

“In 2003 just 3 years after leaving the confines of the franchise relationship I was confronted with the dilemma of selling my business and discovered that that was one area in which I had no expertise. I had known of Sam Sacco from my relationship with the American Staffing Association and learned that he was a broker specializing in the staffing industry, so I asked Sam to represent me. He [Sam] walked me through the complete process and represented me with the buyer keeping me from ever being in a confrontational setting with them. He even negotiated over $1 million in extras for me. He is the kind of person you place your trust in to [do] the best for you.”

– Wayne Williamson, President, Willstaff Crystal, Inc.

Industry knowledge without equal

“I guess the most emphatic thing I can say about Sam Sacco and Bob Cohen is that when another broker brought me a buyer, I would only agree to pursue the deal if Sam and Bob were going to represent me, which they did. I have known Sam for more years than I would like to admit; his industry knowledge is without equal. I met Bob as a result of another business venture where he represented a number of the other companies in the deal — companies bigger than mine, owned by very savvy people.  The conclusion was simple: if he was good enough for them… what was your question?”

– Harvey Silver, Former Owner, CORE Personnel
