Gary Richards has coordinated the planning, capitalization, development, and operation of more than 100 businesses since 1984. He has raised over $120 million in equity and debt financing for them.
In addition to his business brokerage duties, Gary is an adjunct member of the faculty and a business advisor at the Chemeketa Community College Small Business Development Center. Here, he provides client companies with services aimed at “turning management issues into management controls.” The two activities dovetail nicely, he reports, because of the need for business and financial analysis in business acquisition and sales.”
An experienced business owner and manager himself, Gary has launched, built, and sold businesses large and small for his own account over the past 20 years. Gary’s background includes service as Chairman and CEO of a national business unit of a Fortune 500 company. It was here that he gained much of his experience in business analysis and capital formation.
Gary holds a BA degree in Management and Technology from the University of Maryland. He has served on the SBA National Advisory Council, which is a key private sector advisory group to the SBA, Congress, and the President on small business issues.
