Ironline Advisors, an Alabama-based lower middle-market Merger & Acquisition (M&A) advisory firm, announces Ron Poteat has joined the firm as an M&A Advisor based in Huntsville, Ala.

Ron recently completed a 42-year commercial banking career in executive leadership positions serving business and consumer customers primarily in the Huntsville and North Alabama markets for Regions Bank.

“I’ve spent over four decades serving business and retail customers in North Alabama to meet their daily financial and banking needs. Joining Ironline provides me with the opportunity to continue assisting customers in an advisory capacity, especially business owners who need professional advice for their business ownership and management succession planning and implementation. Today, over 90% of business owners are unaware of the value of their business, and over two-thirds of those same owners have no management and ownership succession plan.”

He also serves as a Board Member of Merit Bank.
