Client Testimonials

“It’s rare to find this in an advisory partner but I can truly say that our experience of working with Lisa Mandell, Jim Houghton, Joe Chiles, Mark Kohter and Chloe Maddocks at Waypoint Partners was faultless. They were proactive in their approach, their expertise was multifaceted and highly valuable. They were also unafraid to challenge our thinking whilst being truly supportive in a way that totally exceeded expectations.”

Dave Worthington

Managing Director, Verco

“Matt, Jim and the Waypoint team were a huge support for us as we went through our transaction. From the very early days helping us to understand how M&A could help fuel our long-term growth and product plan for the business, to understanding the market, to guiding us throughout the deal process itself. They were always there for us, challenging our thinking, giving us perspective when we lost it, but making sure that the best outcome for our people and clients was achieved.”
