For the transitioning business owner considering their options

What are my options?

Business owners thinking about a transition--whether to a different full-time role, a part-time role, or retirement--have a lot of options to choose from.

Hire executives? Bring on partners? Sell the company? Sell a part of the company?

We have met a lot of business owners. We know you worked very hard to build a great company and a wonderful team of people. You're always thinking of what's next, not just for you, but for your team, your customers, and your mission. You know these options have their own pros and cons, and your situation is unique.

But here's an option that you might not have heard about yet.



Savana Partners

We are former corporate executives that partnered to build a family and buy and grow a single wonderful business together.

Fiona studied accounting at Bentley, earned a CPA and joined Ernst & Young working in healthcare and consumer technology sectors. After several years she joined a high growth venture backed agriculture startup as a VP of Operations and Strategy. It was here that she discovered the joy of helping COOs prioritize, and that managing a balance sheet well takes both science and art.

Caleb studied computer science at West Point, and served with the Army in Iraq. Following his service, he went back to school to study business and served a few more years in the trenches of global management consulting. The resulting battle hardened humor can defuse tense situations as quickly it creates them.

Along this journey, we discovered a love for the small and medium size business and what they do for families--not to mention their foundational role in a country's prosperity. So we began searching for business owners that would be interested in making us their transition option of choice.

We founded Savana, our own little business dedicated to this search for you. We know you're out there somewhere. We raised a bit of search capital from a small group of business owners and family offices, and they will provide on-going support to us in the purchase and management of the company for the long haul.

Whether you're looking for a clean exit or want to stay and grow together with us, we would love the opportunity to be part of making your next chapter possible. If you are reading this page, then you're likely already talking to us. If not, we hope to hear from you!

Our visionary High Chair, Savana, and two early employees.
