Brian Bruenderman, J.D, Partner and Executive Vice President, joined Stoneridge Partners after a successful stint as Director of Business Development for Almost Family, a leading provider of home health nursing, rehabilitation and personal care services with over 250 locations in 15 states. During his tenure, despite much uncertainty in the home health industry at the time, Almost Family acquired $160 million in annual revenues, including the largest transaction in the company’s history.

Prior to Almost Family, Brian was the Senior Director of Development for ResCare, Inc., a national human services company with more than $1.6 billion in revenue and operations in 42 states. Brian’s strategic approach to developing new markets through selective acquisitions led to $350 million in growth for ResCare and launched the company into the Fortune 1000. Today, he has been involved in the purchase of over 125 health and human service companies.

Brian received his Bachelor of Arts degree and Juris Doctor from the University of Louisville. While in college, he purchased several small businesses and credits his later success to that experience. His business background and legal education give him the skills and perspective to successfully negotiate transactions all the way through closing. Specifically, his almost two decades of involvement with strategic buyers gives him a unique insight into how they approach valuation, diligence and negotiation. This combination of education and experience makes him a valuable addition to any transaction.

I would recommend Brian Bruenderman’s services to any business owner looking to sell their company, especially the owner of a home care or home healthcare company. With many years of experience working with buyers and sellers, he has a full understanding of the home care business. About a year after I started Sovereign Home Health of Connecticut I reached out to a couple business brokers to lay the foundation of a relationship in case the day came when I would be ready to sell my business. Brian was gracious to spend time with me when we were very small and it was clear that an exit was a long time off in the future. The market intelligence that he shared along the way was critical and invaluable as I built the business. When the time came and I made the decision that I wanted to exit the business he quickly and effectively made several introductions and within a short period of time we had offers on the table. He held my hand at every step along the way and coached me well throughout the entire process.

My name is Beverly Mineo and my husband and I are the founders and sellers of Quality Home Staffing, Inc. Home Care Agency. We had been in business for 23 years and had around 400 employees. We reached out to Brian last year to discuss selling options so that we could retire. He fully explained what is involved in selling a business and what we would need to do to prepare the business for sale. After putting together a detailed analysis and package on our business, he was be able to discuss with potential buyers and quickly had compelling offers, which he was able to leverage to get us the very best price possible for our business. During due diligence, Brian always made sure that we understood this process and kept it moving forward so that we were able to close. Brian is extremely detail-oriented, professional and focused. He is an exceptional business broker and I would highly recommend him to any business owner who is looking to sell with the very best results.
