We are back with our first Notorious Interview since the holidays interrupted things. The first interview of the New Year is with an old acquaintance who is one of the nicest and smarted guys in our space: Nick Taylor, VP of Growth at Modus.

This was a fun conversation, because I got to learn a whole lot more about a part of the transaction that is rarely talked about: the closing. There are a lot of companies looking to disrupt the industry, but I’m not aware of too many that’s focusing on what happens once the buyer and seller come to agreement. Modus is one, and Nick provides a fantastic overview of what’s going on in that part of the transaction.
