“Russell Cohen may be the most competent, efficient and yet courteous and kind business man I know. Russel is a global thinker who has such a depth of experience selling businesses, that he can usually calculate a business valuation in his head just from asking a couple key questions. I had the privledge of having breakfast with Russel every week for over 7 years where we attended the same professional networking organization. For each of those years, Russell was the number one business broker in the state of Florida, typically selling 50 or more businesses per year. This level of competence, organization, and courtesy while balancing the need to maintain confidentiality of crucial client data is the hallmark of one of the finest businessmen you could ever meet. Russell has my highest endorsement to any who may have the privledge to do business with him..
