Douglas Craig, who ran a family business supplying high quality fresh produce to restaurants in the West End of London for 17 years, will use his experience of SMEs and providing excellent customer service to help owners achieve the best possible outcome when selling their business.
Douglas says: “Sometimes an owner can only take their business so far but the decision to change direction and bid farewell to what they believe is ‘their baby’ can be a daunting and highly emotive experience”.
“I fully understand the stresses and conflicts faced by small and medium sized business owners, who are often so immersed in everyday demands and dramas that they lose sight of the direction they want to be taking and the need for a healthy work/life balance”.
“Working alongside a business broker gives owners confidence for the future and the opportunity to pursue an exit strategy that meets their goals. Achieving the best price is a key factor but it is also important to consider timescales and what will happen to employees and customers following the sale,”
