PRIOR DIESEL

CHRIS CONROY AND GORDON MACLEAN

We were drawn to the whole BCMS ethos, and were impressed by the simple logic of what seemed to us a novel approach to selling a business. The fact that BCMS didn’t put a price on the business was important to us; it had great appeal. Actively selling the business rather than simply listing the company was the bit that really drew us in.

EVEN IF WE HADN’T SOLD, WE’D HAVE LEARNED A LOT…
