ambitious

I’d like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for your hard work and professionalism in completing the sale of HSS. We were impressed with all aspects of how James Robinson managed the project. Communication was excellent as James kept us up to speed throughout the process.
Nick Henderson
Director, Henderson Site Services
James was calm and assured in terms of giving us guidance and, at times, stopping my enthusiasm for asking for unachievable numbers! Verbal communication was very good and happy with the coaching that we received on a number of occasions from James especially. His experience of other deals helped us to determine our best course of action.
