"We Partner with PCB to find us special assets in particular market segments of Consulting and Digital Services. The PCB Partners have worked at senior levels in our industry and indeed have entrepreneurs in their firm, that have successfully built and sold their own consulting businesses. This first-hand experience, their technology domain expertise and their deep network of industry contacts, is a fundamental factor of their success. They always deliver to the brief quickly and discreetly, that ultimately has led in 2020 to two acquisitions in our UK region bolstering our Cloud capability and our Financial Services industry group. I have to say they completely met our expectations, bringing a unique blend of real world experience and professionalism into the buying process – and as a result have gained our trust and the trust of our targets quickly. Their approach and experience was ultimately a key factor in successfully closing out our deals and we will look forward to working with Ben and Brett on future pursuits."

"We engaged PCB to assist us sourcing a distinct target asset in a specific segment. The task was essential to BIP's strategy to plug a gap in its capability to drive growth and momentum in key markets. It needed to be done discreetly and at pace, but with utmost professional qualification. Ben and Brett’s knowledge covers the gamut of the consulting market with deep and strong relationships with key mid-size European consulting assets. The PCB team delivered to the brief with a level of service that fully satisfied BIP and the firm would not hesitate in re-engaging to help in future critical activity."
