Hughes Klaiber not only found a buyer for my Brooklyn-based, glass manufacturing business — not an easy task — but was able to fulfill my greatest hope. Which was to attract the right buyer who had all the necessary attributes to carry on the glass bending legacy that I had established and make it his own. I can’t say enough about Sally Anne’s determination, business smarts, welcome sense of humor and her ability to remain calm, focused and unwavering throughout the process. It was my very good fortune to work with Hughes Klaiber.

My husband and I worked with Hughes Klaiber for the sale of our business, Plant Apothecary.
We have been recommending Hughes Klaiber to other entrepreneurs who are considering an exit ever since. I found the firm by way of an extensive search for a professional banker who had experience with small beauty brands, and we were thrilled to find that Sally Anne truly knows the space inside out. Our confidence was confirmed by the fact that two other highly experienced professionals in the mergers and acquisitions space recommended her, after we'd already started working with her, and independent of one another. Hughes Klaiber was honest, professional, dedicated, and on top of all that, understanding of the personal demands involved in selling one's business: a rare and extremely valuable combination.

It is with complete confidence that I write this strong endorsement for Hughes Klaiber.
It was after an extensive search I selected them as a partner in the sale of my business. As soon as I met Sally Anne I knew that she would be the right person and represent me well because of her confidence, experience and intelligence. I found her to be a solid advisor who was always available and well prepared. Her contributions during discussions with prospective buyers, lawyers and accountants accelerated the sale and protected my best interests from end to end. I recommend her highly for her professionalism and ability to handle the complicated challenges of selling a business. Her professional skills, integrity, poise and judgement put her in a class of excellence above all others.

Hughes Klaiber held my hand through the entire process, letting me know exactly what to expect, and worked tirelessly on my behalf to secure the best fit for my business. I could not have imagined a better partner with whom to embark on such an important and often emotional journey.

Hughes Klaiber was invaluable in helping me navigate the sale of my information technology business.
Their knowledge, experience and diplomacy allowed me to not only profit from many years of hard work building a business, but to also change my career and free myself from the location-dependence demanded by my old business. I am now living in a new city, pursuing new interests and forever grateful to Hughes Klaiber.

I had the great pleasure of working with Hughes Klaiber for the sale of my business, Uptown Pilates.
I knew when I was ready to exit that I would need someone to facilitate the process while I stayed focused on the daily operations. I met with a number of advisors, but knew immediately when I met Sally Anne, that she was the person I could trust to represent me and my business the way I wanted. Sally Anne puts as much heart and soul into her business as I did into mine and it showed every step along the way. I was also thoroughly impressed with Sally Anne’s entrepreneurial determination. At no point did Sally Anne waiver in her commitment to getting the deal done.
- MIKA STREET, UPTOWN PILATES
Most of our work was with Sally Anne Hughes of Hughes Klaiber, LLC.
We were transferring our company to our daughter and son-in-law—a situation both easier in some respects and harder in others than it might’ve been selling to an outside third party. Sally Anne was terrific. She worked out a fair valuation for our company. She was patient with us and always available whenever we needed to talk and she kept in contact with our lawyers as well.
- PETER AND JACQUIE HERZ, JORNIK, INC.
While purchasing a business this last summer, I had the opportunity to work with Hughes Klaiber LLC who was representing the seller in this transaction.
Sally Anne is a skilled advisor within business sales and acquisitions. Hughes Klaiber effectively represents the interest of their clients while moving the transaction forward to a successful close. I would not hesitate to hire Hughes Klaiber with my future needs regarding an acquisition or sale of a business.
