Having just completed our second year we thank our clients and friends for their tremendous support.
M&A activity has been substantial over the past 12 months with Hamilton Rich advising on multiple transactions.
We are currently assisting in the sale of 2 medium sized (turnover $8m- $30m) businesses including a cross border de merger and contemporaneous sale.
We speak our mind even when it is against our own short term interest. In the last month alone we have successfully advised two clients against proceeding with transactions, that (while they would have entailed attractive fees for us) we felt were not in our clients’ best interests.
Don’t call us if you want a cheerleader, call us if you want independent, honest and practical advice.
Executive Search has blossomed, particularly with CFO, CTO and CEO roles.
We have found a ‘try before you buy’ approach very popular. We put senior executives into businesses on a fixed term assignment enabling clients to assess “on the job performance” and “cultural fit”. Satisfied clients have then converted these executives to permanent roles including one to the CEO position.
Greg Rich, our founder, continues to work with us on Executive Search assignments, recently completing a Funds Management CEO placement.
M&A & Executive Search Synergy
A unique benefit we provide is through our Executive Search activities providing a ready pool of top quality talent always available to supplement M&A clients management teams.
One current business sale client has benefited through contracting an experienced public company CFO during the due diligence process. Another recent client, who considered selling their business due to the pressures and restrictions of excessive owner reliance, was instead liberated by targeted recruitment by us.
We thank those clients who have sought out our services for the first time, we treasure their faith and trust.
We thank those repeat clients who continue to demonstrate their trust in our advice on growth, recruitment, and restructuring and to those who use us as an external sounding board.
We also thank those who have referred us work. As we like and trust you it is no surprise that your referrals have provided many wonderful opportunities for us and for new clients.
If you would like to refer work to us rest assured that we will always have an initial meeting at no charge to your client or friend, will always seek to add value at that meeting and that we will deal with them as we would with you.
We look forward to the next 12 months and to meeting up with you again soon.
