I trusted Taureau Group with the sale of my business and was pleased with the structured process meeting my objectives to maximize value and keep the business in the community. They approached hundreds of prospective buyers in a manner that created a lot of interest yet with full confidentiality. Although this was a business transaction, I appreciated the human approach their team had as they worked closely with me and my family throughout the process and relentlessly negotiated for our benefit. - Rick Blaha, Pak-Rite, Ltd.
I don’t spend much time doing references or give a lot of referrals, but have been delighted to do both for Taureau Group. Corey Vanderpoel and his team were great to work with. Smart, experienced, and good people to boot. They worked with us on the quantitative and qualitative aspects of our transaction to mindfully refine our goals and strategy. They then facilitated a very intentional process which yielded a successful outcome. Hard to ask for more with such an important matter that is one part business and one part emotion. - Alex Lawton, CEO, The C.A. Lawton Co.
