M&A Unplugged

Dec 3, 2019

In this episode, Domenic, Wendi Ewalt, and Leslie Chanel discuss: 

  • The early days of building Wenesco from the ground up. 
  • What happened to the company without a succession plan in place. 
  • Enacting changes within the company during transition periods. 
  • Advice for families of business owners without a succession plan. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • It’s so critical to have a succession plan and to build that early on with your advisors. 
  • Having a succession plan can help prevent the stress on your family of having to run, operate, and possibly sell the business. 
  • Have an operations manual in place. 
  • Put a succession plan, well in advance. Life is unpredictable. 


"Get everything, the processes, in writing, as much as you can. At least then you have a guideline to follow." —  Wendi Ewalt
