Greg was a professional and trusted advisor to us through the entire sale process. He worked tirelessly, providing timely and concise communication and advice at what seemed liked any time of the day or night. He very quickly got up to speed with our industry and controlled the entire process from start to finish. Greg’s ability to resolve conflict and negotiate alternate solutions was continually and successfully tested as we dealt with an acquirer outside of the U.S. that presented some challenging language and cultural issues. I would highly recommend Greg and look forward to working with him again in the future.
John D’Amelio, Former Owner of Precast Specialties Corp.
It was indeed a pleasure to be working with a strong, professional team while getting the personal attention of a partner throughout the process.
Michael Brubaker, President & CEO, R.L. Drake, LLC.
Greg is one of the most effective investment bankers that I have had the opportunity to work with. His professionalism, ability to quickly grasp the complexities of our business, expert advice and follow up insured that our process ran smoothly. Even when we hit road blocks during the process, Greg was there to offer alternative suggestions and to work behind the scenes with all parties to get the deal back on track. Greg was a real partner during the entire process from beginning to end and even though we were operating out of different cities, he was always available day or night to discuss and address the issue at hand.
