Robert Zankl Sr.


Mr. Zankl semi-retired in 1990 when he decided to stop flying weekly between Detroit and Florida. In 1991 he joined Mr. Jon Ledeckey group (a sports team owner tycoon) and started a business acquisition rollup to take to an IPO. Throughout his time with the Ledeckey group, Robert Zankl completed seven rollups all achieving successful IPO’s. 

“I would travel with two Price Water House accountants, meeting with business owners in our choice area of rollup, I would educate the business owners on the idea of using our process of acquiring their business and taking it public with an IPO to exit from their business. They would know the current stock value of their business at all times and the sellers could see their multiplied value any day the owners want to exit after IPO. The owners were given half cash and half stock at the time of sale. The largest IPO was for over six hundred million ($600,000,000.00) dollars.”
