Meet Todd Sanderson, BA, CPA, CA, CEPA

As an entrepreneur, chartered professional accountant, and certified exit planning advisor I have over 30 years of experience in helping business owners achieve their exit goals. I partner with my customers to provide them with a laser-focused, hands-on approach that works on their terms. Whether they are looking for a share or asset sale, a limited partnership, an equity raise, or an employee purchase plan, I have the expertise and the network to make it happen.
I have worked with customers in various industries, such as tourism, hospitality, real estate, contracting, franchising, and more. I have also worked with businesses in Mexico, the United States, and Canada, offering them cross-border business solutions. I have extensive knowledge and skills in strategic planning, taxation, financing, valuation, and business turnaround. I have also taught business strategy, accounting, and taxation at Okanagan College, and was a finalist for the City of Kelowna Man of the Year award in 2015. I am passionate about supporting the entrepreneurial community and sharing my insights and experiences.
In my spare time, my wife and I enjoy bicycling, hiking in the backcountry with our corgi, and cooking. I personally enjoy training for triathlons, including open-water swimming and jogging.


Sanderson Business Services Will Help You Make Informed Decisions

My Purpose

Sanderson Business Services was re-launched in 2022 with the sole purpose of helping entrepreneurs exit their businesses on their terms.

I act as an “experienced advocate” in helping customers develop comprehensive, written Exit Plans.
My process and methodology is well defined using the Value Acceleration and Value Builder methodologies.

My customer's objectives form the core of my work.

I strive to thoroughly understand your unique set of circumstances along with your values and vision for the future, both pre and post-exit.

By doing so, I am well positioned to "Direct the Process" of developing a transition strategy that integrates a customer's financial, estate, and legacy objectives.

What I Believe

    Business owners deserve financial freedom due to their life's work.
    Transitioning ownership is likely the most significant financial event in an owner's lifetime. 
    Planning for ownership transition takes time, 2-5 years in advance of departure.
    Successful transitions begin with education and planning.
    Successful exits are intentional, tax efficient and in written form.
    A Comprehensive Valuation is critical, to understand the drivers that impact the business positively and negatively. 
    Key Employees are an essential ingredient to any “transferable” business. As such it behooves every owner to develop incentive plans to retain, reward and recruit those catalysts.
    Exit Planning requires a multi-disciplinary Advisory Team with" subject-specific” knowledge to develop a successful exit successfully.

My Approach


At Sanderson Business Services I am committed to offering unmatched expertise, service, and responsiveness along every step of my process. I pride myself on "same day" turnaround on any customer-initiated inquiry. I am consistent with this service model regardless of the size of your company or net worth.
