Owner and Former President

Express Packaging

EdgePoint exceeded our highest expectations at developing a marketing plan for the sale of our business. They had a response well in excess of the number of offers I anticipated, and at higher values. The team at EdgePoint was very professional and thorough in the way they provided coaching in the process of prospective buyer interviews and due diligence. We would not hesitate to recommend them or use them in another transaction.
