I am Laura Gay, a certified Mergers & Acquisitions Professional (M&AP) and I am your personal advocate and consultant during one of the largest transactions of your life – the sale of your auto body shop. I allow you to come to the seller’s table with confidence & knowledge on your side.

A Mergers & Acquisitions Professional (M&AP) with over 30 years of experience in the collision industry.

In early 2006, a shop owner approached Laura and her former husband to buy his shop that was in financial ruin.  Always seeing a business opportunity, Laura put together her first of many transactions by purchasing $300K in accounts payable debt, minimal business assets, and real estate.  In true Laura fashion, she tripled the annual sales in the first 18 months taking the shop from $1 million to $3 million in annual sales.  

In the fall of 2011, she identified and purchased a second failing collision center.  Integrating the same business philosophy at the second location which propelled the annual sales from $750,000 to $3 million in the first year. 

In 2015, the opportunity presented itself and Laura decided to sell both shops to Caliber Collision.  Before the deal was entertained, Laura dove in deep to learn every aspect of the consolidation process including the many dynamics of valuing a collision center.  

After the deal closed on her own shops, informally she assisted 20 + colleagues/shop owners with the sale of their collision centers and continued to expand her knowledge and expertise of mergers and acquisitions. In 2017, the Consolidation Coach was born. She realized many shop owners desperately needed trusted help and guidance with the process of selling their shop.

Consolidation Coach specializes in assisting collision center owners in a seamless transaction process to obtain the maximum returns for their business and help them realize the next chapter of their life.

Sold my small MSO with the help of Consolidation Coach and would not have had it any other way. Every concern or worry I had there was an answer, solution, and guidance for. Laura reassured me and calmed my nerves thru the process that was very stressful at times. I know I realized significantly higher return on the sale and there were so many small things that equated six figures of found money that otherwise I would have left on the table from not being knowledgable with the consolidation process. ~Keith
