Rex Slagel, VERCOR Managing Director. After a successful career with one of the largest lower middle market M & A Firms in the Chicago area, Rex joined the VERCOR Team in 2003 and continues to assist sellers and buyers in the middle-market.

Rex has worked with privately held clients in a wide array of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, and service, with revenues ranging from several million to several billion. Due to the complexity of a deal and the available resources most owners utilize, he believes the mid-range segment of the market benefits significantly from the services of a skilled professional mergers and acquisitions advisor. The pre-sale preparation, marketing, and confidentiality issues of a business transfer require experience, superior negotiation skills, and patience.

"Middle market entrepreneurs should be preparing to move from the 'success' driven stage of their business lives into the 'significance' of their future. Most have a good portion of their wealth tied to their business. As they prepare for this highly complicated transition a relationship with their advisers that is built on trust, objectivity, and capability is vital."

Rex has been married to Jody for 29 years and they have two children. He is the co-author of "Selling Your Business - A Practical Guide to Getting It Done Right" and has written numerous articles for business publications. Along with being an avid Trikke rider, he spends a great deal of time on outreach in the city, gardening, reading, and practicing his movie critic skills.
