QualDerm Partners’ Bill Southwick to Speak at the Business Owner Symposium in Nashville

Event Will Focus on How to Successfully Sell or Transition a Business

Brentwood, TN (May 9, 2017)

Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through acquisition and de novo development, will be a featured panelist at the Business Owner Symposium: Preparing for Transition event.

During the event, Southwick will participate in the Business Owner Panel discussion, “Transition Realities – Learnings From Other Owners.” This session will give attendees an opportunity to learn from business owners who have successfully sold or transferred a business. In addition to providing insights into the selling and transferring process, panelists will also answer questions from the audience.

“The process to sell or transition a business is challenging,” says Southwick. “There are numerous options to consider, and advanced planning is a necessity. I look forward to sharing the lessons I’ve learned from navigating this process.”

Throughout his career, Southwick has led the sale or transition of several businesses, including HealthMark Partners, a surgery center company, and ReDoc, an electronic medical records company dedicated to the therapy space. He has over 20 years of experience in healthcare, including physician practice management, ambulatory surgery centers, assisted living facilities and healthcare IT.

A second panel discussion “Preparing for a Future Transition” will also be presented during the event. In addition, attendees will hear the results of Vanderbilt University’s transition planning survey of 500 business owners.

The symposium is May 10, 3:30 – 7:00 p.m. at the Hillwood Country Club in Nashville.  BNY Mellon Wealth Management, BKD, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, and Brentwood Capital Advisors are the event sponsors.
