Our senior team

What our clients say

  • “The amount of work and complexity involved in a sale process with international trade buyers is big. Now having gone through it, we couldn’t be happier that we selected CFI to lead the transaction. Their transactional fortitude, industry knowledge, international reach and ability to work well with the entire ISG team and its diverse shareholder base proved essential in this successful transaction outcome”

    Patrick Roskam, CEO of Industrial Safety Group (Arbo Support), on its sale to DEKRA

  • “We hired CFI because of its focus and track record of executing transactions in the HR services segment. They did a great job finding an excellent company for KP&T and Staatvast to partner with.”

    Mr Gijs Botman, partner at Mentha Capital on the exit of KP&T and Staatvast to Egeria Investments

  • “CFI Brazil’s local knowledge and extensive Business Services Sector expertise were fundamental for us to work together. In fact, the two transactions in which they acted as the sell-side advisors to other Companies,  gave us confidence to hire them for other opportunities related to our core business.”

    Mário Câmara, CEO of Atento Brazil
