Benchmark International has the knowledge and experience to manage and assist the many obstacles that a business owner faces when going through the sale of a business. In working with Benchmark International on the sale of MC Communications, I felt that their various teams understood my goals and exit objectives. With the knowledge of my specific objectives, Benchmark International was able to source a deal that would provide my business, employees, and clients a greater level of service and opportunities. Benchmark International’s perseverance and dedication to finding solutions got the deal across the line.

Mike Crawford

 I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to all those at Benchmark International who played such an important part in the sale of my company. I am very pleased that a satisfactory sale was completed within just a year of being on the market. The service provided and the strong influence the team had enabled such a great deal and an exceptional experience.
