We are both extremely grateful for your guidance, patience, diligence, brilliance, resilience, tenacity, positivity, good humour and the time you have spent with both of us. We realize as Business Advisors, the challenges you have encountered to manage us all!
VEER supported me through a difficult buyout which resulted in a successful transaction that has allowed the business to thrive. VEER’s creative solutions and broad perspective were essential to creating an agreement and closing this deal.
Thanks for your assistance, honesty and guidance through this process. You made every meeting comfortable and productive. I feel like you explained everything with language that was easy to understand which helped me make my decisions confidently.
In both transactions, VEER has been professional and provided us with a range of services that we could not have managed without their involvement.
I have worked with VEER Business Advisors on the sale of two companies over the past two years. Initially, VEER produced an analysis of our business for the improvement of its business processes. Subsequently, we decided that by taking these actions, the business had put itself in a stronger position and engaged VEER to find a potential buyer. In both transactions, VEER has been professional and provided us with a range of services that we could not have managed without their involvement. The two sales were quite different. One was to a third party and VEER negotiated on our behalf to arrive at a deal that we feel was favourable to our situation. Bob was pleasant to work with and always, within reason, available. The second transaction was an internal transfer of shares which had some complexity to it and Bob was excellent at negotiating with some very challenging personalities. Given my experience with VEER and especially Bob Lawrence, I would recommend them to anybody looking at improving the operations of their business, either for the purpose of selling, or simply to pinpoint and improve challenging areas in the business.
As a business owner facing the reality of eventual succession, there are so many questions and issues to consider. I highly recommend VEER Business Advisors to anyone considering succession options, whether immediate or in the next few years. They were very thorough, really ‘got’ my business, my financials and my goals. They gave me a road map to follow. On top of that, they were very prompt. Overall, a great investment in avoiding traps and pitfalls on the path to maximizing the return on a business exit.
Bob is one of the first people I call when I have a business or organizational challenge. He is knowledgeable and trustworthy and easy to talk to. I recommend Bob as an advisor for any business looking to become more successful.
As a successful growing family business, we feel very fortunate to have had the expertise and advice of VEER Business Advisors in the planning and transitioning to turn our business over to our son. Their unique ability to combine and balance businesslike thinking with family-like thinking allowed for a much easier understanding of the plan and process. Their insight into Family Business Dynamics was truly an asset resulting in a smoother transition than we had imagined.
Our food production company has been in business in Vancouver, B.C. for 16 years and has recently been able to attract investments from interested parties introduced by Bob Lawrence of VEER Business Advisors. He organized and prepared our company for investment and found this wonderful business partnership within 1 year. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have Bob on board with us and we are deeply grateful for his knowledge, dedication and sincere work ethics that have brought about this successful investment. We look forward to the expansion of our company with our new business partners under Bob’s guidance.
I have had the opportunity to work with Bob on solving many business-related problems. I found his energy, enthusiasm and business acumen to be second to none. He is a trusted mentor and business advisor.
