Playbook Advisory announced today that Jim Peddle, President & Founder, has joined the largest business brokerage association in the United States. The IBBA is an association of professionals providing merger & acquisition services to business owners. Mr. Peddle is one of five business brokers affiliated with the IBBA from Chicago and one of 27 in Illinois.

Jim Peddle, President & Founder announces today that his firm is now a member of the largest business brokerage association in the US.

"We have joined this organization due to its long standing commitment to the industry, the quality of their educational programs and because of the number of quality business brokers that are current members. We believe business owners are well served by having an IBBA broker as their advisor."

Mr. Peddle founded Playbook Advisory in 2016 to offer merger & acquisition assistance to business owners operating companies up to $10,000,000. Playbook Advisory has been engaged to sell companies operating in a variety of industries including Staffing, Technology, Machining & Manufacturing & Retail distribution.

Business owners may go to or to to learn more about the services a business broker provides its clients. We strongly suggest owners interview a minimum of three firms & business brokers prior to signing and executing a listing agreement. Terms such as exclusivity, listing terms, commission rates and triggers on payment should be fully discussed with each firm.
