“We engaged the team based on the depth of their industrial distribution and door hardware knowledge, and reputation for quality execution in the middle market. They put together top-quality materials and ran a well-organized process that resulted in a great outcome for Speyside on a very complex carveout transaction. We were very impressed with the senior level attention that the team provided and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
