My relationship with George Pero and DCG Acquisitions spans the better part of 4 1/2 years. He has taken the time to understand our investment strategy and worked tirelessly to identify the perfect fit for our buying criteria. We have been patiently waiting for the right opportunity to come our way and when George brought this deal to us, we immediately knew this was “the one”. George has been intimately involved in every aspect of the transaction navigating the deal all the way to the closing table. We look forward to future opportunities George and his team as we continue to optimize our business through these unprecedented times.
This is our second closed deal with DCG Acquisitions in less than 12 months. Our first deal was the purchase of a Chevrolet store in our local community. We tried to buy this store several times for almost 15 years with no success. We engaged Joe Beaver of DCG to represent us and things started to happen. Just a few short months later, we were at the closing table and our dream of adding this store to our family became a reality because of DCG. Fast forward to today and here we are again with yet another successful transaction because of our relationship with DCG. This time, we asked Joe to find us a suitable buyer and that is exactly what he did. In addition, George Pero spent countless hours providing our family guidance and counsel to a level I never dreamed of. His constant reassurance and professionalism instilled a tremendous amount of comfort that not only we were making the right decision, but more importantly this was absolutely the best deal we could have gotten for the business climate as dealerships continue to enjoy extraordinary results. I always felt DCG was with us every step of the way!
Our relationship with DCG Acquisitions has truly exceeded our expectations for a Mergers & Acquisitions firm. George Pero was instrumental in every aspect of the transaction to get this deal across the finish line. We always felt George was in our corner accurately communicating our deal points with the highest level of integrity and tenacity that was necessary to make a deal this of this nature happen. In addition, Joe Beaver never let up with his tireless efforts to maintain consistent communications with all parties that also contributed to a successful transaction. This is our first closed deal with DCG Acquisitions but I am confident that there will be many more over years to come. They worked closely with several members of our executive team on every step of the process from beginning to middle to end, everything! We look forward to working with George Pero and his team at DCG on future deals as we continue to grow and expand our brand in additional markets consistent with our investment strategy!
We were represented by George Pero and Joe Beaver of DCG Acquisitions in our most recent acquisition of Klamath Falls Subaru and Klamath Falls Honda. The experience we had with George and Joe was a true pleasure. They helped to facilitate a 'win-win' situation for both buyer and seller; which also ended with relationships created between all parties that will continue past this one transaction. They were professional, organized, well-informed and a true value add for all parties involved. Through open communication and a solution oriented mind set, all aspects of this transaction were able to be worked through and concluded in our closing. We look forward to future business with George, Joe, and the Dave Cantin Group; and have much appreciation for their services on this most recent transaction.
For years, I’ve worked with George and it has been an excellent relationship. He’s delivered on every promise, met deadlines on-time and on-budget, helped exceed quotas and simply helped our business exceed expectations. George has an exceptional ability to develop relationships that transpire into long lasting sales opportunities. His ability to form these relationships within the industry allow him to penetrate the market with high levels of conversions and success. I wouldn’t hesitate utilizing George for critical roles in any business.
To say that George is an asset to a team is a complete understatement. His drive, passion and sheer determination makes him an unstoppable force in the community and business. His actions and leadership lifts others, he breeds success to all those around him. For numerous years, I’ve witnessed George accept a challenge and achieve almost every goal he’s set as his mark. His ability to develop markets, operate on budgets, build company from start-up to profitability, establish a healthy culture of a company and communicate effectively are some of the best of anyone I know. I would jump at an opportunity to work with George because I know, without a doubt, he will create the success for the challenge in front of him.
As the founder and former CEO of American Auction Group (now known as XLerate Group) I have known George Pero for over seven years. In 2012 my company had the pleasure of acquiring all of George’s auctions (Auctions in Motion). The addition of George’s auctions certainly increased my company’s national footprint but equally as important this acquisition enabled us to bring one of our industry’s most creative and successful serial entrepreneurs on to our senior management team.George Pero’s business successes were, and continue to be, a direct result of his visionary approach and passionate dedication to developing and executing new methodologies in an industry that hasn’t always embraced change. That combined with his fine tuned leadership, problem solving and decision making skills positioned George to excel in the area of mergers and acquisitions on our behalf. I miss working with George Pero for he has always brought an air of inspiring excitement and energy to everything he does.
