Mark McDonnell
CEO of Infobase

We looked at a number of firms for potential partnership — ones that not only were highly qualified but also motivated to work with us on this transition. The [DC Advisory] team had that something ‘extra’ that you look for in a partnership, where you have the utmost confidence they will work harder, think more deeply and ultimately deliver a better result for your team. [DC Advisory] did just that. We are so pleased to have worked with them through this transition.

Bill Latham

They take an old-school type of consultative approach to truly doing what’s best for the client, which is refreshing. I always find them thoughtful and willing to offer a balanced perspective.
