McMurry & Swift Affiliations
In addition to ongoing continuing education courses that allow McMurry & Swift Associates to expand their skills and increase productivity, our firm actively participates with several professional groups and networks. These liaisons allow us to expand buyer and seller 'horizons' beyond the local marketing area.
International Business Brokers Association (IBBA)
We are an associate member of IBBA, the largest international non-profit association operating exclusively for the benefit of individuals and firms engaged in the various aspects of business brokerage, mergers and acquisitions. The IBBA totals more than 900 cooperative business brokers and intermediaries across Canada, Mexico, Europe and the U.S.
Mergers & Acquisitions Source (M&A Source)
The M&A Source group is an integral part of IBBA and consists of those IBBA members (approximately 250) who regularly call on companies that might be of interest to private equity buyer groups (BGs). Twice a year at IBBA conventions representatives from a member of these BGs (usually 50-60) assemble to see what candidate businesses the M&A Source members have to offer. This is an extremely efficient and productive venue for showing our best candidates to buyers of proven competence and financial strength.
