From Deal Leaders Africa to Deal Leaders International
The Deal Leaders International brand launch
In April 2017 we embarked on our journey to build Deal Leaders Africa, a specialist M&A advisory firm that focused on working with private business owners of medium to large businesses.
Although we started locally, it was almost inevitable that we would quickly transcend South Africa’s borders and reach beyond to extend our capabilities and scope internationally.
Since then, we have developed a strong international network through our Pandea Global M&A network, as well as forming alliances with CapEQ and Onyx in the United Kingdom. We have also been approached by numerous local and international clients to help craft their growth and exit strategies.
We are now extremely proud to announce our brand and name change; as of the 1st of June 2021, we will no longer be Deal Leaders Africa, but instead will become Deal Leaders International.
Deal Leaders International: Corporate & Advisory
Over the last 18 months, we have been fortunate to attract several larger clients in both the privately-owned and listed space. This part of our business has grown from strength to strength and has now warranted the launch of our Corporate & Advisory business with Andrew Bahlmann as its Chief Executive.
This part of the business will focus on transactions that are complex and/or more than R300million in value. The introduction of our advisory business fills a discernable gap in the market for the effective formulation and execution of growth and exit strategies for our clients.
Rick Grantham will manage our Owner-Managed division as Chief Executive and ensure that we continue to deliver results that you, our customer, expects from us.
What does this all mean to you?
The good news is that the changes to our brand and company structure will have no direct impact on you or your project. We will continue to deliver at the highest levels of output, quality, and professionalism. Our value proposition to you will not change one iota. You can rest assured that we remain committed to the very best solution for you and your business.
We would like to end off by thanking you for your continued support and for trusting Deal Leaders Africa International to help guide you on your exit journey.
