What Our Clients Are Saying


When I was considering my exit strategy over the next 5 to 10 years, I quickly realized that courting all the many types of buying options available to me would be an exhausting task.  The Monarch team listened to my goals and practice culture and help match me with many great buyers that fit my needs and retirement transition goals.  The Monarch team was very responsive to all my questions and took a lot of the information organization off my plate.  I know that I was not the only practice they were working with, but I always felt like I was their one and only client. Without their consulting, I would never have received the purchase price and partnership I chose.

Thinking about selling your practice can come quickly when you realize aging doesn’t slow down.  I decided to see what was out there with all the corporations and quickly was overwhelmed.  Coincidentally, Lori from Monarch called me to tell me about Monarch.  I knew her when she was actually working for a corporation years prior.  Now she was on the other side of the equation.  We met and I decided to let Monarch Business Consulting take control of my future.  It was a process to say the least.  Documents, meetings, dinners, etc.  We went through over 20 interested corporations and decided a partnership was better than an outright sale.  We finally came down to 2 and I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made.  Never would have been possible without the help of Monarch.  They know the corporate landscape.  They know the venture capitalists.  They know what’s best for you.

Chris and Dave were instrumental in creating an exit strategy for me. Selling our practice was the most financially important and emotional transition I have ever experienced. The knowledge and support provided was invaluable!  I cannot thank the Monarch team enough.  No regrets thanks to Monarch!

Working with the people at Monarch was a pleasure from start to finish.  They worked tirelessly to help me sell my practice. It’s not easy to sell a solo private practice in a small town in upstate NY these days. They said give them a year and that’s exactly what happened. My thanks to everyone at Monarch. Together we found a great private practitioner to take up the mantle and serve our community, all jobs intact! Many thanks.

My experience with the Monarch team and their help in discerning what to do with our practice ownership was very satisfying.  They got to know us and what we needed and were hoping to achieve. They helped us identify a positive path forward for our practice and personal futures.  They established good connections that lead to attractive options for us and then saw through the execution of the plan.

Working with the Monarch team on our sale was truly a once in a lifetime experience.  We found them to be knowledgeable, diligent, professional, seamless, collegial and transparent to us about the entire process.  We could not imagine a more successful outcome and we would highly recommend the Monarch team to any veterinarian seeking help in the sale of their practice.

Chris and David took me on as a client in the height of the pandemic providing me with a frank appraisal of my practice, the pros and the cons.  They stood by my side during the whole grueling and sometimes stressful sales process. Their grasp of the veterinary profession both financially and operationally is amazing and a definite plus. They are professionals with whom it was a pleasure to work with.

Everyone at Monarch was great.  They helped us work through a complicated transaction, and answered all our questions, often before we knew what questions to ask.  They even continued to work on our behalf after the closing.
