Louis Diamond Quoted
By Lisa Shidler
After four years of honing its business model, a relatively unknown Tampa, Fla.-based platform for breakaway brokers is adding recruiting muscle to its team in the well-known persons of Dan Cronin and Shad Besikof in order to accelerate its growth.
Yet there are big reasons why there are 18 roll-ups but just a handful of Dynasty-like players, according to Louis Diamond, New York-based principal with Diamond Consultants.
“The business has very slim margins and there are existing formidable competitors [that have established critical mass],” he says. “Smaller ones are popping up but they are Dynasty-lite.”
