The principal of Stoney Point LLC is Dennis Pressler. Dennis has over 35 years of business start-up, business operations, business sale and business acquisition experience. His industry experience is in both long-haul trucking and precision contract manufacturing.
Dennis started two Indiana based long haul truckload carriers. The first was for Schneider National in Fort Wayne. It grew to almost 150 owner operators and 200 semi trailers. The second was for himself and was based in Indianapolis. It grew to 230 company owned tractors and 560 semi trailers plus approximately 20 owner operators.

Dennis has since focused on assisting business owners on achieving the best possible transition for their companies and assisting business buyers on realizing their acquisition goals.
