Meet The Team – Aaron Soury: New York and Southern Connecticut Regions

By Achim Neumann


Aaron, Where did you grow up?

I was born in the Bronx, NY in 1958. When I was one year old my family moved to New Rochelle, NY. I was raised there throughout my schooling and into my twenties.

Where did you study for college?

I went to Pace University and received a BBA with major concentrations in marketing and management.

What was the first job you had out of college? What was the most important lesson you learned there that has stuck with you for your entire professional career?

My first job out of college was in retail at Macy’s Executive Training Program. During my four years in college, I worked part time in one of the local stores. As I was approaching graduation, I had conversations with store management and selected Macy’s after exploring many options. After my retail experience, I went to the wholesale side and worked in the apparel industry for 10 years. I had an opportunity to put together a plan and run a food concession in an office building. It was a great experience writing and executing the business plan. I sold that business and went into the banking industry. I was in the banking field for 20 years, starting in the mortgage division and rising through the ranks to the last 12 years as Branch Manager. Throughout my career, I learned to work to the best of my ability.

What drew you to working with A Neumann and Associates?

I decided to join A Neumann & Associates after doing extensive research. The company has an established solid track record. The team has a lot of experience and has been helping clients sell their businesses and investors looking to buy a business in New York and Connecticut for decades. The back office support is second to none. The company’s straight forward approach is the way I like to conduct business.

What counties and states do you represent?

I help my clients sell a business in Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, and Bronx counties in NY, and Southern CT, including Fairfield County as well as the buying side and consulting on a multitude of fronts.

What do you feel makes your region unique compared to others? (tax benefits, special laws, etc.)

My region includes small, medium, and large businesses. These businesses sectors include service, distribution, retail, manufacturing, construction, and, in some areas, farming. Just about any type and size of business exists in my region.

What do you find is the biggest challenge in your region compared to others?

I don’t know that there is any bigger challenge in my region. I believe the process we use for aiding in the transitions of mergers & acquisitions at A Neumann & Associates, which has been refined over decades of experiences, helps minimize challenges.

What do you find is the biggest advantage working in New York and Connecticut compared to other states?

Having been raised and living in my region for most of my life. I understand the differences, opportunities, and economics in the various communities throughout New York and Connecticut.

What do you think is the most underrated opportunity in your region?I don’t see an underrated opportunity – just opportunities!

What is the most rewarding experience you’ve had working in NY and CT?

I find getting out and meeting business owners to be the most rewarding. Each business story is unique. I admire every owner’s entrepreneurial vision and drive.

Client Testimonials

“ I appreciate your diligent approach to screening buyers and sellers as well as the high quality CIM that you produce.”

Andrey O, Investor

“Finally enjoying retirement after recently selling my business using the services of A Neumann & Associates. Joe Oddo provided the conduit to a successful transaction. Joe knew when to inject input and when to simply listen and allow the buyers to vent, step back and regroup. The outcome met our expectations and got us to the finish line, which included my staying with the company six months in order for the buyers to get their footing and keep our workforce in the loop. He helped at every step by providing his expert guidance & resources. Thank you!”

Emily Parker Myers, Co-Owner - Myers McRae

“I had been in touch with Karin and Gary from A Neumann & Associates regarding some opportunities and was looking forward to meeting with them. Hence, when they organized a seminar in Princeton, NJ, I was quick to sign up. The seminar was very informative as the team walked the attendees through various scenarios and referenced real life buying/selling situations they had been through. The sessions by Gary, Karin and Achim were crisp and focused and brought clarity to potential seller and buyers. I strongly recommend the team and look forward to continue working with them.”

Gaurav Tyagi

“Thank you for your Event on "How to value, Sell, and Buy A Business for Maximum Profit" and the insight into ANA’s approach on what is involved in the Business Exit for sellers. Garys Hervieiou's "Business Valuation", Achim's "Deal structure" presentation and Karin’s "Preparing the Package" are real street knowledge shared. They answered attendees questions which makes it more interesting for learning from others. Great for small businesses like us. The presentations were totally worth our time and travel for the event to Princeton, NJ from Rockville MD. Ravi Bhutani, President, CIPS”

Ravi Bhutani

“Gary, this is to thank you for an excellent job done in selling our business. We could never have done it without your professional expertise, dedication and time put in without reservation to make it happen. We will gladly and highly recommend you to anybody in our position.  It was a pleasure to work with you.”

Pat Iammatteo, Owner

“Your vetting is simply outstanding, among the best I've seen from a broker.”

Eric H., Investor

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Marc, who explained the process in detail. After meeting with Marc in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using to sell my business for max value. Working with Marc at A Neumann & Associates was very easy and professional. I did not know all that was going to be involved in selling my business but they helped me through the process. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. Marc not only knows his stuff, but actually is a real nice guy.”

“Working with Marc and his company was a pleasure. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. Marc handled most of the interaction and he has one of the greatest demeanors. Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”
