Was able to preserve the emphasis on customer service and maintain the creation of long-term opportunities for employees


Louis Perry
Former President
The Louis Perry Group

EdgePoint did an outstanding job for me. My parameters for a buyer were very specific and EdgePoint was able to work within those constraints to identify and negotiate a transaction that was economically compelling to me and that preserved the emphasis I built on customer service and the creation of long-term opportunities for my employees. We are most pleased with their service.
