International Network

We have a broad global network

CCI works with an international network of personal contacts, which have been developed with other independent M&A Advisors and entrepreneurs over the past 30 years. We believe the personal contact to these firms and individuals is the most effective way to ensure quality contacts and expertise around the world, in keeping with our belief

in delivering the highest quality results for our clients. Our independence also provides us with the flexibility to advise our clients internationally, which is important when the client has developed a certain level of trust in the advisor. We are happy to provide you with more detail to our contacts in specific countries and industries.
