Jerry Liss

Senior Regional Business Adviser 

After graduating from NYU Stern School of Business, Jerry joined his family’s distribution business, A. Liss & Co., Inc. as a Sales representative. He was primarily responsible for taking a project from conceptual design through layout, to sales and installation of material handling storage and warehouse equipment. Customers included major firms in a variety of industries throughout the New York/Tri-State region.  

During the recession of the early 1990’s, as CEO, Jerry implemented programs that dramatically changed the direction of the company. He effectively navigated the firm into the construction industry as a Specialty Subcontractor. Under Jerry’s guidance, A. Liss quickly became a major force in its field of expertise and built a strong reputation for managing projects with a high level of honesty and integrity. In 2019, it was time to reap the benefits of decades of hard work and building the business and A. Liss & Co was successfully sold.

Jerry’s strengths include all facets of business operation with an emphasis on sales and contract negotiation, project management, marketing and finance.  His ability to handle complex transactions, skillfully overcome everyday business obstacles and his genuine concern to do what is right for his clients make Jerry an ideal individual to guide you through one of the most important life decisions you will face – the sale of your business.
