Put The Power of XPX Membership to Work For You - and Your Clients

The Exit Planning Exchange –  XPX Houston Chapter is a community of trusted advisors that collaborate to help their private company clients build business value, transfer ownership and create a legacy of success in their lives and their communities.

Welcome to XPX Houston

We launched the Houston Chapter in early 2023 with a focus on educating owners along their journey. Although we are the exit planning exchange, the biggest part of exit planning is growing businesses so that owners are better armed to exit on their own timing.

Our Chapter Launch was a Success!

About XPX

XPX is a multi-disciplinary community of professional advisors who work collaboratively to help owners build valuable businesses and assist them in preparing and executing a successful transition. Private company transitions require a broad view of the entire life cycle of a private company including:

  • Business value growth
  • Business value transfer
  • Owner life and legacy

Our community includes advisors and owners in all stages of this process. Our members have specific areas of expertise as well as a holistic understanding of the breadth of challenges an owner faces throughout the stages of the private company life cycle. This helps XPX members to work in the best interest of their clients.

We have a clear set of shared principles for advisor excellence. Each of the 12 professions involved in XPX has specific ethics and practice guidelines. Our members take this a step further, adhering to a set of principles that guide collaboration and long term thinking (see our five Advisor Principles)

We are unique in that we are the only open advisor network in the private company/business value transfer market. This means that we do not advocate a single approach or vendor. Instead, we endeavor to be a place where all advisors, owners and vendors can interact and collaborate.

Each XPX Chapter is a locally-controlled non-profit organized by national and regional leaders in the private company market. The first XPX chapter was launched in Boston in 2007. Today, we have Chapters across the U.S..

The Chapters are supported by XPX Global, an entity that provides capital, intellectual property and administrative support to Chapter operations. This model takes care of the administrative tasks that are the bane of the boards of most professional organizations. It leaves to the Chapters the key tasks of events, membership and sponsorship—the most visible and high value activities for volunteers interested in an increased profile in the private company market.
