Look up the number for the company in an online or local telephone directory, and call the business. Finding out the name of the company may be as simple as asking the person on the other end of the line. Searching the company name on a search engine can also help find contact information.

Check the Contact or About links on the company website for information about who owns the company. Some companies make this information public on their official websites. A search engine query using the company’s full name should help to find the official company website.

Visit the BBB website and look up reports about the company. Important person’s names and their corresponding title may appear on the report even when the company is not a member. Note the date the information was posted to ensure that it is reliable and up-to-date.

Lastly, find the state’s database of registered business and check what information is available about the company. The information provided many include the company owner’s name although the nature of information made public on these databases varies from state to state.
