Sustainable Growth Client: Industrial Sector

“I found working with Richard Wright both challenging and rewarding.
His hands-on ideas based on real life experience were very useful.
We are already seeing some benefits to the work completed and hope to see more in the future.
I would recommend the services of Richard to business owners looking to review and improve performance.”

Mike Hallwood, Managing Director, Cladding Coatings Ltd

“I was contemplating selling my business when I was introduced to Richard by an associate. My initial discussions with him confirmed my decision to sell, and Richard came on board to help me make it happen.

My business has its own complexities and one of the things I have found really helpful is Richard’s ability to break things down and introduce a positive spin. There is no such thing as a negative – everything is always a positive, and an opportunity for a buyer. Without his constant encouragement and guidance I’m not sure I would have ever been in a position or the correct mind set to sell.

Throughout the process so far he has been a pleasure to work with. Always there to answer any questions with patience and authority.

He really is an expert in his field. Having introduced me to a broker I like and trust, I am optimistic about finding a buyer, at a price that will make it all worthwhile.”
