"We hired CCG because it was obvious that they understood our business and our industry and were the kind of guys we could work with - honest and aggressive."

"I told CCG that I knew of their reputation in my industry and that when the time was right I would let them help me sell the company.  I was 39 at the time, so I figured that would be in about ten years.  I guess timing is everything since a large strategic buyer called me not two weeks later and made an overture to buy my business.  The guys at CCG reacted quickly and helped me negotiate a deal that I am certain was the best thing for me, my family and my employees.  Sometimes plans are meant to change, and in my case, having CCG's guidance and expertise helped me change the course of my family's history in a very, very positive manner.  It would not have happened without them.”

Charles grew Tropics North into the largest landscape maintenance firm in southeast Florida. 

He helped Tropics North to achieve a ranking by industry trade publication Lawn & Landscape as the 30th largest landscape company in the United States.  Under Charles' leadership, Tropics North was recognized by the Professional Landscape Network (PLANET) with a Decade Award, becoming one of only 16 companies to have received the distinction since 1967. 

CCG was referred to Charles by a longtime mutual friend that provides business owners like Charles with wealth, estate and business succession planning.  Charles already knew of CCG's reputation in the industry because of numerous landscaping deals successfully executed by CCG around the country over the preceding decade.  What Charles did not know was that the timing of his venture, and the next chapter in his business life, was going to begin much sooner than he originally thought, with CCG's guidance. 

Through CCG's diligent and thoughtful process, Charles determined that a sale to industry leader ValleyCrest made excellent business sense for he and his company.  Tropics North and ValleyCrest struck a deal based on a common approach to excellence in customer service and well-matched dedication to superior quality of work.
