MALVERN, Pa. (Aug. 24, 2010) — Tire and automotive aftermarket industry veteran Art Blumenthal has launched an aftermarket-specific nationwide business brokerage firm bearing his name.
Art Blumenthal L.L.C. aims to provide business intermediary and advisory services to buyers and sellers of single and multi-location businesses, including tire and auto service dealers, commercial tire dealers and wholesale tire/parts operations.
The consulting firm is offering exit planning strategies for business owners considering a sale in the next five years.
Mr. Blumenthal is former owner of four Midas Auto Center franchises and owner/CEO of Anderson BDG Corp., a software technology company for aftermarket chains, franchises and independents, which he sold in 2001 to Aftersoft Group Inc.
He remained as vice president of business development and marketing for Aftersoft Network N.A. Inc., the subsidiary formed from the acquisition, until April.
“Seeing a critical industry need and filling it with expertise and integrity has been the hallmark of my career,” Mr. Blumenthal said in a press release. “Now, by leveraging the experience, in-depth knowledge, and extensive contact network I've achieved in over thirty years in the tire and automotive aftermarket industry, the timing is right to establish a nationwide aftermarket-specific business brokerage venture bringing value-added benefits to both buyers and sellers in our unique industry.”
