“We met the team when we reviewed a prior client of theirs in the sector and were impressed with their experience and industry knowledge. When it came time for Cennox to explore a transaction to help fuel our continuing growth, they were the natural choice to be our advisor. While our business spans the UK, Europe and the USA, the fastest growing segment is in the USA. The team was able to leverage their deep industry knowledge, familiarity with cross-border transactions and long-standing relationships across the private equity community to assist us in crafting Cennox’s growth story in a way which attracted interest from multiple industry-knowledgeable potential partners. From the outset of our process, York Capital distinguished itself as the perfect match to partner with our executive team and help drive our strategic vision. We greatly appreciated the team’s guidance and attention from beginning to end.”
