Paul is a founding partner at ExitCatalyst, a boutique M&A firm whose purpose is to assist its clients to achieve their expansion or exit ambitions.
Having seen too many owners simply wind down their businesses after many unsuccessful attempts to find an acquirer, we decided we would set up ExitCatalyst to work with these owners and their Managers to transform these businesses. The aim being to make these businesses highly compelling to an acquirer and investors. We are passionate about ensuring that long standing viable (in some cases more than 40 years) businesses survive and prosper well into the future, and therefore continuing to provide a benefit not just to their owners, but also their employees, customer/suppliers and the community at large. The loss to the economy of such businesses closing down is simply too large to ignore, and our goal is to achieve a great outcome for all stakeholders.
