Long-time North I-25 Business Association member
and former Chair Dennis Houston formed his
consulting business, True North Business Navigation
Professionals, ten years ago. He has worked with
over 50 local businesses providing a variety of
services, which he detailed in his talk.
Many companies cannot justify having a full-time CFO
on staff, so one of the biggest areas of the True North
practice is providing CFO services for clients.
Every business owner should plan an Exit Strategy,
and Dennis can consult with the owner to develop a
plan even before they are ready to leave the business.
When it is time to sell, as a Business Sale
Intermediary, Dennis helps the owner attract, qualify,
and negotiate with the potential buyer. On the purchase
side, he works with clients who want to buy a business
to identify and analyze the potential purchase. If existing
employees want to buy the business Dennis can
structure an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
“We are unique in this kind of business,” Houston
said. “We have an 80% success rate in arranging
successful sales and purchases, compared to our
competitors’ 20% success rate.”
With challenging credit markets over the last five years,
the Business Loan Sourcing services True North
provides have been critical to many a client’s survival.
Dennis works with these clients to help them restore
their relationships with lenders.
Dennis offered one free hour of True North’s consulting
service to North I-25 members, for either personal or

New Mexico, particularly the purchase of the Manuel Lujan Agency in September 2013.
