Ruszkowski to speak on “Practical Matters in Executing a Sale to an ESOP”

Verit Advisors announces that Rob Ruszkowski, Vice President, will participate as a panelist at the Ohio Employee Ownership Center conference on Friday, April 20 in Akron. The topic is “Practical Matters in Executing a Sale to an ESOP” and Ruszkowski’s focus will be on the financial aspects of the sale to an ESOP and how it compares to traditional M&A. This session is geared towards small business owners who are looking for “beyond the basics” information on ESOPs. Ruszkowski has particular proficiency in sell-side M&A transactions involving a diverse set of middle market companies.

Ruszkowski also possesses substantial technical and analytical know-how following a distinguished career in chemical process engineering. Prior to his experience at Verit Advisors, Ruszkowski was a chemical engineer at ESOP-owned S&C Electric Company in Chicago. Mr. Ruszkowski was responsible for a wide range of duties in this role, particularly capital project justification and implementation, modeling of complex system variables for troubleshooting and process optimization projects, and statistical analyses of perpetual product performance studies. He joined Verit Advisors in 2011.
