Their proven experience in the environmental services industry, established relationships with the potential buyers and senior level commitment and guidance from the beginning to the end of the process made a real difference. From the very beginning through closing, the team conducted a well-organized process with straightforward, clear communication and high level of involvement. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
