Curt Maier is veteran (US Navy Veteran - Naval Nuclear Submarine Force) having spent twenty years at a FORTUNE 300 global industrial gas manufacturer in increasingly accountable management positions and thoroughly enjoying the past 16 years of small business ownership experience. My strength is in working with small business owners on turnaround management, leadership development and ownership transition strategies. I recently joined IBA (), the oldest business brokerage firm in the Pacific Northwest, as their Vice President of Business Development. I had the pleasure of working collaboratively with IBA while previously the owner of my own franchised business brokerage firm (Murphy Business Northwest) and found them to be the pinnacle of the industry in terms of knowledge, experience, professional negotiations, and deal facilitation. I look forward to continuing to serve the entrepreneurial community, including military Veterans transitioning from active duty to civilian life as new small business owners. My business brokerage and franchise consulting services employ "best practices" developed through the years by IBA and myself.
