Liam Kavanagh of Don O’Malley commented: “Don O’Malley & Partners Ltd engaged the services of Benchmark International to test the market for potential buyers for the company. From the outset of our dealings with Benchmark, we found them to be highly professional, extremely knowledgeable and always acted in our best interests. We felt particularly comforted in using their service because of the high level of interest and support from senior management within their organisation. It was not long before Benchmark began presenting potential buyers to us for consideration eventually resulting in the acquisition by our business by Randridge International.”
