Richard D. Vaughn


Richard D. Vaughn has over 30 years of experience working exclusively within the contract office furniture industry. Throughout his career, Rich has honed his business and legal skills by effectively solving complex business and legal issues specifically at the dealership level with dealer principals. Rich has focused his expertise on advising dealer principals on exit strategy and transfer of business ownership, combined with specific action focused recommendations. Rich’s philosophy is that achieving a successful outcome for each client – the dealer owner – starts with having a thorough understanding of the principal’s business and their human concerns.  This understanding can be just as important as price and the other terms of the transaction when selling a business because it ensures the principal feels comfortable and fully represented during the sale process.
