Episode Description

If physical locations are part of your growth strategy, you are always weighing the pros and cons of design/build versus acquire/renovate, keep going versus put on hold, and look for a better deal versus accept today’s terms. The instability of financial markets makes this an even more difficult high wire to traverse. Hear how this CEO has walked that very tightrope to grow The Hamister Group to $44 Mil through a combination of acquisitions and development using a variety of financing vehicles. Specialists in assisted living and hotel management, the Hamister Group now has 15 locations and 1000+ employees in NY, PA, TN, and KY.
