When selling our food business, Simon took a lot of trouble to understand our business and the market we operated in. He got us a number of very credible offers and he supported us through the entire process to a very successful closure. We were delighted with the outcome.

He produced a great business plan that combined both my strategic vision for the business and the detailed operational and financial plans. This was a crucial part of securing our new investor.
