Getting to Know David Braun, President of The MAXIMA Divestitures Group Inc.

Thoughts and background from MAXIMA’s President, David Braun

The development of the MAXIMA Divestitures teams over the years enabled me to focus on adding value to meet and exceed client expectations. Whether problem solving, strategy and business evolution, or the liquidity event that enables freedom (or escape), we love what we do!

In many cases our clients have invested decades of their life into creating, developing, and supporting a business. We believe they deserve to have that investment supported by a team that invests in understanding their unique business model and communicating that value to a buyer.
