When seeking the best M&A or Brokerage representation, “Past Success is the Best Predictor of Future Performance”.
During the last several years, one of the most difficult business climates in decades, Matt Slappey demonstrated what hard work, perseverance, and great client relationships can accomplish. Matt was recognized for the following:
Awarded “Top Five” Business Broker in Georgia Association of Business Brokers each year for 2008-2104 and “Top Producer” for multiple years.
Ranked “Top Ten Percent Nationally” in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014
President – Georgia Association of Business Brokers 2013
In March of 2015 Matt was recognized as the #1 producing Murphy office in the United States out of over 200 offices.
Matt has a wide array of experience on transactions typically in the $1MM-$50MM range. Regardless of the size of the transaction, the same issues are important to business sellers. A sample of these include the value of their company, confidentiality during a transaction, understanding the tax issues of selling a company (because Matt believes the amount of money you keep is more important than the sale price of the company), ensuring appropriate legal representation so that there are no surprises after the sale, and many other important issues.
Matt’s top deal to date for 2014 is his representation of one of the companies involved in a three way merger. The combined revenue of these companies is $150MM and the new combined company is focused on creating a national footprint in their Information Technology market.

Matt represents sellers of privately held companies and he also represents individuals in their endeavor to purchase a small to medium sized company. On the more advanced end of the spectrum, he has several years of experience representing private equity buyers pursuing acquisitions for growth.
As an Atlanta native for over 40 years, Matt delivers a superior level of local marketplace knowledge. Matt’s attributes of maturity, respect, and honor were developed and honed during seven years as an officer in the U.S. Army. His strong technical skills allowed him to obtain the rare combination of duties as both a military intelligence officer and a pilot with the dual qualifications for both rotary and fixed wing aircraft.
On a personal note, Matt lives in Decatur with his wife Sheri (also an Atlanta native) and their three daughters. In his spare time he enjoys golf, fishing, aviation, and playing the guitar.
