Clients choose to work with us because of our knowledge, research capability and passion for achieving outstanding results!
Justin Levine, Managing Director

Selling a private business is usually a once in a lifetime opportunity. We make it happen.

We specialise in the sale of companies with revenues typically from £5M-£50M.

Our clients engage us to identify suitable buyers and to confidentially manage the complete sale process through to a successful transaction.

Engaging our services allows the business owner to retain focus on their business during a company sale.  We provide expert guidance, strategic advice and discrete negotiation to reach the most favourable deal.

We have supported business owners within a wide range of verticals including industrial automation, aerospace and defence, information technology, food & beverage, healthcare and medical devices.  Our clients choose to work with us because of our industry know-how, research capability, experience and global connections.

By thinking strategically about our client’s business and carefully matching a buyer with a seller, we create the optimum conditions for a successful deal.

One of our key strengths is our ability to research global markets for potential buyers.  With an investment of around 125 man-days in research for every client project we handle, our research capability is very strong.  Even though most of our clients are experts in their chosen field, we frequently present potential buyers previously unknown to our client – but ideally matching the criteria for an acquisition.

Our 15-strong virtual team is made up of experienced researchers and analysts.  Each client project is led personally by our Managing Director.  To date, we have delivered successful deals in South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Germany, UK and Ireland.

To see if we are a good fit for your company sale, book our 121 Masterclass or contact us for a confidential appraisal.

Supported by an exceptional team, our Managing Director provides hands-on leadership.

Prior to leading TheNonExec, Justin Levine enjoyed a fast-track career as a Managing Director and Vice-President with global energy & automation solutions giant Schneider Electric. He led various companies across Europe, Asia Pacific and the US before forming a French-based strategy consulting firm in 2005.

Returning to the UK in 2007, Justin provided strategic guidance to a number of prominent companies. This led to striking out full-time in mergers and acquisitions in 2011. With a keen focus on creating a best-in-class service aimed at private business owners, the business has expanded to bring in various specialists in forensic research and financial analysis together with a graphic design team. Based around a virtual office from the outset, the company is able to support client-engagements throughout the UK and overseas.

Justin Levine was educated at Imperial College (Aeronautical Engineering) and Kingston Business School (MBA). He is a guest-speaker at the West London Business Forum and acts as a non-executive Director to several successful companies.

Justin spent significant time to fully understand our business. He had an excellent understanding of the Group's financial structure with multiple holding companies and consolidations.

Bill Cody, Chairman, Challenge Group

We have a growing reputation as one of the best exit advisory boutiques to work with in the south-west.

Our clients for the most part are privately-owned SME's.

Projects over the years have covered sectors such as manufacturing, engineering, technology, IT, wholesale, distribution, healthcare, digital, retail, food & beverage & education.

Most of our client projects remain anonymous due to the various partners we work with or where we have confidentiality agreements in place. But where possible, we publicise a few past clients across a variety of projects.
