SVA’s Gralapp Featured in In Business Magazine

SVA Certified Public Accountants Professional Nicole Gralapp was recently featured in an In Business magazine article titled “Exit Planning: The Recipe For A Successful Transition”.

Most business owners want to exit their business within the next ten years, yet most have not created a concrete written plan for their exits. In the article, Nicole discusses the four objectives of a successful exit strategy.  These include planning ahead, setting measurable goals, incorporating flexibility, and using a proven process.  This last step is the most important step.  Using a proven process such as the BEI Seven Step Exit Planning Process™, SVA is able to craft exit plans by integrating the owner’s and family goals into one unified strategy.

Nicole is a Principal with Business Advisory Services at SVA Certified Public Accountants, S.C, working primarily with closely-held businesses and individual clients. She provides clients with technical expertise in areas such as tax planning, financial reporting, financial projections, budgeting, financial and estate planning and review of internal controls. Nicole also leads SVA’s exit planning business strategy using the BEI Seven Step™ Exit Planning Process.
