Ron Rash brings industry expertise and leadership to the helm of MidAtlantic Business Advisors. He spent more than ten highly successful years with two Fortune 500 companies before moving on to become an owner/operator and investor in numerous small and lower middle-market businesses. Ron holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech and a Virginia real estate license. In addition to his CBB (Certified Business Broker) and CBI (Certified Business Intermediary) designations, Ron holds the coveted designation of M&AMI (Mergers and Acquisitions Master Intermediary), a designation held by less than 100 brokers in the nation. The M&AMI designation from IBBA (International Business Broker Association) is their top designation. It requires satisfactory completion of extensive initial and continuing education and a minimum of three closed transactions exceeding $1 million in proceeds. Ron holds this designation and far exceeds the minimum requirements. He also holds the FINRA licenses now required in the industry (the Series 7, 79, and 66 licenses). Ron is a past board member of the Virginia Better Business Bureau, the Center for Christian Studies at the University of Virginia, and Young Life of Charlottesville, VA. He has also served for more than twenty years as a deacon and elder. Ron's background and values, combined with a commitment to continued education, provides a high level of trustworthy insight to the clients that MidAtlantic serves.
The new FINRA industry regulations instituted in November, 2009 require licensing of brokers as described in our "About Us" information. Individuals attain these licenses but they must be associated with a registered broker - dealer in order to legitimately engage in business brokerage activities which include securities. Any transaction which includes a sale of the stock of the corporation or any type of promissory note is considered a security transaction. Unlicensed brokers engaging in securities transactions subject their clients to unnecessary risk including possible rescission of these transactions. MidAtlantic Business Advisors is an independent brokerage firm. Its advisors are also registered representatives of Reliance Worldwide Investments ("RWI"), a national broker - dealer based in Chicago, IL. Our securities transactions are conducted through RWI for the protection of our clients. Our relationship with RWI gives us access to a number of additional services to further serve our clients.
