What Our Clients Say About Us
As part of our due diligence of Fond Foods, we required a strategic review of the business, its market position, potential for growth, key risks, etc. We also needed independent advice on the reasonableness of the purchase price and some help with preparing a financial model for bank funding purposes. Dougal provided us a comprehensive report with a number of practical recommendations and also developed an integrated financial model with detailed assumptions. We were really impressed with the quality of Dougal's work - it exceeded our expectations and was value for money.
Nigel Moody, Director, Fond Foods (2007) Ltd
Dougal provided an excellent service to ETSL within a constrained timeframe. His research, financial and strategic analysis proved invaluable to us. We enjoyed his pleasant and personable demeanour - something that is often overlooked - after all business in the end is all about people. We have no hesitation whatsoever in using Dougal's services again or recommending him to others.
Geoff Bennett, Chief Executive, Energy and Technical Services Ltd
Dougal provides well-researched and practical advice, and valuable strategic input that aids our decision-making. He consistently delivers on time and relates well to EMS's board, management and staff. I would definitely recommend Dougal to other clients who require expert support on strategic projects, and who are looking to grow their business.
Kevin Duckworth, (past) Chief Executive, Energy Market Services
Totally Vets and Tylee+Co have worked together over a number of years on mergers & acquisitions and business strategy. As our business has grown, the need for independent commercial advice has become essential both at a governance and management level. Dougal Tylee's experience in this field and his work across a range of business sectors brings a perspective which would otherwise be lacking and has assisted Totally Vets to maintain business discipline as the Company grows. Dougal's depth of understanding of our sector is a big advantage, as is his network. We are looking forward to an on-going relationship with Tylee+Co and I'm delighted to endorse Dougal's services.
Chris Carter, Chief Executive, Totally Vets Ltd
Dougal ran a very well thought through process. He pulled the investment proposition together very professionally and presented it well to prospects.
