“From the beginning of the process, I was comfortable with the knowledge and expertise of Provident. They brought sell side expertise that made the process easy to understand for someone going through this for the first time. I felt Provident was there to support me through the challenges and celebrate the success of my transition. I would recommend the Provident team without reservation to any business owner considering selling,” noted Greg Ganse. President of Ganse.
“Greg Ganse has built Ganse Apothecary to be a market leader in long term-care and specialty pharmacy space in the Pennsylvania market over the last 50 years.

We look forward to watching the future success of the combined entities,” commented Patton.
