Meet Andrew Petrie

Andrew is an investor-backed entrepreneur and leader seeking to acquire and grow one business for the long term.

Andrew grew up in Ohio in an entrepreneurial family. His WW2 veteran grandfather started a plumbing business and his father started, grew, and sold a successful label manufacturing business. The name Three Meadows comes from the neighborhood Andrew grew up in - where his Dad started his business, where his family had a house fire and experienced the value of local community, and where he started having entrepreneurial goals.

Andrew is not your average business buyer. He understands how big the decision to sell your business is to you and your family. Who you decide to sell your business to will have a massive impact on your employees, customers, and other stakeholders. Andrew is an entrepreneur and small business buyer excited about running and growing your business, not a private equity fund focused on financial returns.


He brings 10+ years of experience growing businesses of all sizes in the technology, real estate, and education industries. Andrew completed his MBA at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management. He is a marathoner, an improving golfer, and a huge Ohio State Buckeyes football fan.

When not working, Andrew spends his time with family, seeks adventure, and challenges himself to do hard things.

Our approach and process is streamlined and efficient to focus on you and your business.

Step 1: Intro Conversation & In-Person Meeting

 

We'll get in touch to explore the opportunity and determine a mutual fit. ​​We'll learn about your business and story and share ours, while also discussing your future goals and plans. When possible, we'll meet in person to get to know each other better.

Step 2: Letter of Intent (2-4 weeks)

 

If we both want to proceed, we'll sign an Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and request some basic financial and business information to provide a ballpark valuation. We will then detail a set of agreed upon offer terms in a Letter of Intent (LOI). ​​

Step 3: Due Diligence (6-12 weeks)

 

After signing the LOI, we will provide a longer request list to complete our evaluation of the business, while also engaging service providers and lawyers. We'll need your help, but we will operate with transparency and engagement throughout the process.​​

Step 4: Celebrate!

 

We'll agree to final terms and execute the legal agreements. You'll get paid and Andrew will begin his operational growth journey.​​

Three Meadows prides itself on being the transition plan for owner's who want something different in a buyer
