Jeff Hider

A professional business intermediary, with over thirty years of diverse business and merger and acquisition experience, Jeff Hider takes a very personal approach to working with owners of small businesses. As Principal of The THOR Group LLC, he provides Exit Strategy consulting, Business Valuations, and M&A services to clients locally, nationally, and internationally.

His business development, management consulting, and sales/marketing expertise serves clients well in developing strategic marketing plans to identify and connect with the best buyers for their businesses.

Because Jeff has worked in senior management in small and large companies in several industries he is able to assist business owners across various industries and markets.
