“…a vital member of our board of directors…”
If you are looking for a strategic professional who is accomplished at increasing shareholder value and developing viable exit strategies driven by your goals, I highly recommend the services provided by Ed Lasak, the Managing Principal of… Dream Big Exit.
Ed is a CPA and financial expert, who is also an accomplished business operator, skills that he leverages from his experience of holding high level CFO and COO positions over his 35 year professional career.
As an integral member of our executive management team, Ed has helped Brickley increase the value of our environmental remediation and hazardous waste trucking companies by getting buy-in and developing a strategic plan that has helped us double our revenue, increase profits and [raise] market share. Ed is involved in the process of all major decisions. He has become a vital member of our Board of Directors by providing sound advice, best practices, confidential communication, and an optimistic and simplified approach to growth. Additionally Ed is facilitating viable strategies for our retiring owners and senior management.

“…extremely effective at working with all levels of management and ownership…”
Ed Lasak is an accomplished businessman, CPA, and community leader. His diversified experience and commitment to continuous education have resulted in him honing a keen sense for identifying value opportunities, and an ability to seize them and deliver increased shareholder value.
I say that, not only as a former business colleague who worked with Ed for nearly a decade, but also as a CEO who relied on Ed’s counsel, experience and analytical skills. He helped steer our business, The Press Enterprise, through one of the worst recessions in history. Ed’s skill-sets enabled us to profitably navigate through “The Great Recession” and successfully exit the business, selling it, including all of the real estate, in 2013 at one of the highest multiples our industry has recorded since that recession.
Ed’s analytical skills and understanding of business finances go beyond accounting and finance to help identify and create new opportunities, supported by detailed operating plans and projections to track progress and accountability. He is extremely effective in working with all levels of management and ownership, and has an ability to keep all stakeholders focused on the strategic mission and strategies to accomplish it.
If you want to drive positive change and results for your company; if you want to position your company for growth or transition; then I highly recommend Ed Lasak. He has ability to monetize your assets and create value at every level of the company – the top line, the bottom line, operating cash flow and capital.
