"Comentorise began consulting on various options for a sale of a research business I had founded some 24 years beforehand. They were chosen on merit from a shortlist of 3 possible corporate finance providers, including larger "names" and smaller specialist boutiques. Immediately, I was struck by their no nonsense, realistic approach and an excellent translation of the technical aspects involved, with which, at the time, I was largely unfamiliar. They then put forward an imaginative range of options, each one presented as a thoughtful, worked through model. They managed the process at every stage of the journey towards completion, and even bothered to reconcile all the details thoroughly afterwards. Comentorise not only understood the figures, the process and the need to offer guidance throughout, they also recognised the human side of disposing of a business in which I had invested more than just money.
They did not solicit this testimonial; I volunteered it because I would have no hesitation in recommending Comentorise as a highly skilled, committed team to anyone seeking their valuable expertise."

There is for sure never a dull moment with the current pace of growth and having you as part of the team has been invaluable in making it all possible. On top of this it is such a real pleasure working with you."
