Sukay & Associates, Inc. is a financial advisory firm that focuses exclusively on representing insurance agencies and brokers in business transactions. We work closely with a limited number of clients, at one time, to ensure that we exceed expectations and deliver superior results. Sukay & Associates was founded because of a real need for advisors who have been responsible for the execution and the post-closing success of a deal. Most advisors are not experts in creating value for their clients. If you are looking for experienced insurance agency valuation and advisors who will work tirelessly on your behalf, please contact us.
With each and every one of our clients we want to achieve the essence of a true partnership. Our priority is to understand our client’s goals and take every step with them to achieve those goals. While many advisors try to copy our approach, none can duplicate it. Nobody has our experience and works harder to achieve our client’s goals.
CEO, Sukay & Associates
We are truly committed to achieving our clients’ goals; we are not just involved. Our combined deal experience and insurance experience is not something that can be matched by our competitors.
President, Sukay & Associates
I met Tom Sukay in February 2013 after reading a whitepaper he wrote on Internal Perpetuation. We met and established an immediate raptor. The shareholders of CBS were at or near the age when most individuals begin to consider retirement and the need to perpetuate their business. We were one of the fortunate agencies who had multiple options to choose from. There were two legacies in the business. In addition, CBS was very attractive since it was located in a major metropolitan market and it had reached a size that potential buyers would find very appealing. Tom and John Biasiello began a process where they thoroughly reviewed the agency while performing a financial and operational review. They worked with the legacies to develop a plan for perpetuation. They walked us through the risks and benefits of both an internal and external sale. The process was never rushed. Most importantly, both John and Tom were available at all times to discuss any facet of our plan. They realized that CBS was our life work and they were aware of the emotional challenges that we faced while making the decisions. Our final deal was more complicated than most transactions. Tom and John organized a plan which made its execution easier on all parties. I highly recommend Sukay & Associates as an advisor if you are planning to perpetuate your agency.
President and CEO, CBS Coverage Group
We selected Sukay & Associates for two primary reasons. First, after several early meetings it was clear that John Biasiello and Tom Sukay were two individuals that would be able to understand and communicate our unique business model. Secondly, they have an unmatched reputation for integrity and effort.
