The Exit Planning Exchange New York is a unique multi-disciplinary association of professional advisors who work collaboratively to help owners build valuable businesses and assist them in preparing and executing a successful transition. We welcome qualified individuals and firms as members.
You’ll be a good fit for our association if you:
· Work directly with owners and/or senior managers of companies in the lower middle market (roughly $5-100 million in revenues)
· Share the core XPX Principles (Work collaboratively, Put the client first, Think long term, Consider the human angle and Always be learning)
· Are an experienced advisor in one of our 12 member professions (Accountants, Attorneys, Bankers, Coaches, Consultants, Insurance Providers, Investors, M&A Intermediaries, Non-profits, Valuators, Virtual Managers, Wealth Planners)
Membership is subject to approval to ensure that you are a good fit with our community in terms of the focus of your business and your fit with our values. Our membership application requires two references, with at least one of them being an active XPX member from an organization other than the applicant’s organization.
We hope that you will become an active member of our chapter and take advantage of the valuable benefits we offer as an organization:
Resources– You’ll learn from great content and programming. “What I know, What I don’t know, What I don’t know that I don’t know. XPX helps me get this right.”
Relationships– You’ll expand your network with people who are genuine, inviting and welcome collaboration. “We’re givers, not takers (and givers get more in the long run)”
Visibility– You’ll raise your profile by sharing your knowledge in meetings, networking and contributing to our on-line Owners’ Academy knowledge base. “I know the guy/gal! who can help”
Principles– You’ll find a group of like-minded advisors who share our values of collaboration, client first, long-term thinking, focus on the human factor and continuous learning. “It’s about the quality of the people in the room.”
We offer several membership levels:
"At XPX, I find really great people network with, and I enjoy being able to prospect with a cadre of experienced and accomplished high level advisors, at one location, where you can learn about their expertise at a much deeper level People at XPX tend to be more worldly not only due to the nature of the M&A biz — but as they hail from multiple disciplines over their years of experience.
XPX differs from other networking learning orgs in that it maintains a heavy focus on education but also is a group where pure professionalism is weighed more highly than just prospecting, with experienced professionals looking to gain an understanding of what you do and how you do it as opposed to just making a sale.
I have developed multiple tax clients and projects, but more importantly I value the fantastic relationships that I know over time will not only produce lots of new business but enable me to confidently refer to others e.g., attorneys in the group — and enable me to look good when I recommend. I love going to XPX for the social side, for the power networking groups –one of mine splintered off into an ongoing mastermind group sharing business ideas and mindfully addressing challenges — and, of course, the learning."
