Laura Kevghas

Laura is our Exit Planning Specialist at APW, LLC. She has enjoyed a 30-year career in mergers and acquisitions, helping business owners in a broad variety of industries sell their company to strategic or private equity buyers. Additionally, she spent ten years making acquisitions as the Director of Corporate Development for a private equity-owned, B2B media company. Sitting on both sides of the M&A table has given Laura a unique understanding of how buyers value acquisitions and how best to position clients to be attractive acquisition candidates.

Over the course of her career, Laura has completed more than 60 transactions, ranging from less than $1 million to more than $200 million in deal value. She is an expert at understanding a company’s value drivers and unique competencies that create the desire for a strategic acquirer to pay a premium price for a business in industries as diverse as business services, manufacturing, and technology.

Laura is also an Enrolled Agent, and has ten years of experience assisting clients with complex personal tax situations.

Laura holds an MBA Finance and a Bachelor of Science in Economics/Finance from Bentley University’s McCallum School of Business. Laura is past-President of the New England chapter of the Exit Planning Exchange, and was a Vistage Trusted Advisor member for 10 years.
