They were instrumental in helping us to make a compelling case to Pracedo as to why we would be a strong partner in the next evolution of their growth to become a leading SFDC partners globally. The PCB team was extremely responsive, attentive to detail, and dedicated to producing the best outcome possible for Collabera Digital.

"ECI successfully sold Edenhouse, the UK’s largest independent SAP consultancy, to Accenture in February of 2021. PCB Partners were instrumental in brokering the vital early stages of the transaction, by bringing the two parties together and ensuring the interests of all parties were aligned up front and early on in the process. This was an important and valuable exercise for ECI that ultimately led to a very successful outcome for ourselves, the founder and major shareholder in the business and Accenture. "

"PCB partners is one of the few M&A specialists having an accurate vision on how trends currently at work in the company transformation value chain should be read. From my industrial investor standpoint, I trust their capacity to originate the right deal situations to fit our expansion strategy and advise us on the best stance to smoothly close them. "

"Proxima is a world-leading procurement and supply chain consultancy. In 2019, we decided to look at all the exit options for shareholders to provide liquidity and also support the business in its future growth ambitions. We appointed Tim Farazmand and his team at PCB Partners as Management Advisors to the team because they understood the sector and had deep experience of the private equity community. They provided valuable insights into private equity and helped the management team evaluate all options; in September 2021 Proxima completed a corporate recapitalisation. "
Chairman, Proxima Group
"We have been working with PCB Partners to accelerate our development in the UK. They brought a deep knowledge of the consulting market in the UK, which helped us to accelerate the screening and initiate meaningful conversations with relevant targets. And they added continuously value during the execution of the deal, securing the process until the closing. I look forward working with the team on new opportunities. "
