what they say
  • Selling can feel like giving your identity away. Matt has a very genuine, long term approach that respects the past and builds on that for the future.
    Mackay CEO Forums
  • I’ve worked here for almost 40 years. The company is still a great place to work
    Braidy Portfolio Company
  • I didn’t know what to expect when our owner sold, everyone really liked (him). In the years since the sale the morale of the company is actually higher, which I didn’t think could happen.
    General Manager
    Braidy Portfolio Company
  • My wife is happy I retired and that she won’t have to run the company if anything happens to me. I still pop in to see how things are going; I’m impressed and happy.
    Braidy Portfolio Company
  • I’ve heard lots of horror stories about selling a business. Our transition went very smoothly.
    Braidy Portfolio Company
  • My people, family & business are in good hands and my legacy is preserved. Matt’s taking the company to the next level and the staff are energized.
    Braidy Portfolio Company
  • For over 30 years I have had the privilege of working with many successful businessmen in a variety of situations and circumstances. Matt repeatedly demonstrated a keen interest in delving into the guts of a business’s operation and grasping the key factors contributing to the success of the particular business. A respect for what the founders of these successful enterprises accomplished is continually demonstrated along with a true desire to understand the legacy wishes of these founders. They’ve consistently cultivated loyalty from existing management teams and subsequently all companies have grown.
    DMCL Chartered Professional Accountants
  • Due diligence paired with knowledge, confidence, and experience provided us substantial comfort they could tackle any potential future obstacles. I know with confidence they can acquire a company in any industry and apply the same business principles to create or grow a successful operation.
