TAS Marketing announced the successful sale of two telecommunication businesses that were recently listed. The first business was Hudson Valley Answering Service located in Poughkeepsie, NY, owned by Dominic and Sharon Gallo. “The Gallo’s were very satisfied with the sale as negotiations were made and equipment was purchased to enable the buyer to accept a few large accounts that were using radios,” said TAS Marketing’s Steve Michaels. The buyer, Dick Gore and his daughter Julie Mooney with Berkshire Communications located in Pittsfield, MA have taken over the operation and “found it to be an excellent acquisition for their future growth.”
The second transaction was Answerphone, Inc. located in Jacksonville, Florida owned by Vicki Leonard. This sale was to Sunshine Communication Services, Inc. owned by Peter and Andy Gross out of Coral Gables, Florida. “Peter found it helpful that the management would stay with the business and that they were on the same equipment platform,” Michaels summarized.
Both transactions were complete within 60 days.
