OUR CLIENTS - SAM PEMBERTON

Sam Pemberton

WE LOOKED AT VARIOUS ADVISORS… BCMS WAS ALWAYS THE FRONT RUNNER

The company had been through a long-term change programme, and I was brought in as CEO in 2007.

It was always a long-term vision that we would have a good, strong, company. The natural next step was to respond to the companies which had shown interest in acquiring our business, and we wanted to respond using a professional brokerage.
