Why we
started REAG

Nearly two decades of industry experience

River’s Edge Alliance Group (REAG) was founded by Scott Mashuda and Todd Torquato in May 2004. They began by assisting business owners in the valuation and sale of their companies. The business quickly expanded its service offering to include business acquisitions for buy-side clients.

In November 2013, REAG acquired Cordeva, LLC, a consolidation of Confidential Business Sales and Market Point Associates.

In November 2014, REAG acquired Navigence, Inc, a strategic planning firm.

These acquisitions expanded REAG’s capabilities to include value enhancement and value protection strategies for business owners not yet ready for sale.

We're on a mission to help businesses exponentially accelerate growth. Join the team.
