Advisor: Ian Salter

Business: Private

“As an experienced buyer and seller of businesses I have dealt with many business advisors. It is with that background that I can confidently say that the service provided by Ian Salter is second to none. Ian’s attention to detail and genuine care to get the best result for all is unquestionable. This was particularly evidenced when an issue with the business purchase remained unresolved many weeks after settlement, Ian continuously pursued all parties until the matter was resolved. I would have no hesitation recommending Ian Salter to anyone looking to buy or sell a business.”
