Playbook Advisory is pleased to announce the sale of a substantial Chicago area niche staffing agency to it's client, a successful serial entrepreneur and private investor.

Once we determined the buyers needs, our firm provided a quick introduction to an area company that fit the profile the Buyer outlined at the first meeting."
