"Jon, Steve, Hanna, and Colm were an incredible team of advisors and execution partners. At every step they provided invaluable counsel and execution support that changed what could have been a challenging process and decision into an event that changed the lives of our senior officers and entire team. We were so delighted with the AGC Partners team that we increased their compensation above our initial agreement. They were a delight to work with, and I look forward to the opportunity to work together in the future."

"I’ve had the chance to work with many investment banks over the years. AGC stands head and shoulders above the others in three areas: they invested the time and energy to get to know our business at a really granular level; they were tirelessly persistent in working to achieve a great outcome; and the quality of both tactical and strategic advice that I received from Jon Guido was exceptional."
