Atlanta, GA – CCG Advisors, LLC, an Atlanta-based investment banking firm, announces its most recent commercial landscape transaction with the sale of Cutting Edge Property Maintenance, Inc. (“Cutting Edge”) to BrightView.

Ryan Comer, Cutting Edge Founder: “I had nothing but an incredible experience working exclusively with Brian Corbett and the CCG team throughout our transaction. They led the entire process from day one, which allowed me to continue to focus on my businesses and not get caught up in managing the process. As experts in the green industry, the CCG team gets it from all angles of the process. Their wealth of knowledge and experience ultimately led us to achieve 100% of our pricing and timing targets. I have worked with many professionals over my career, CCG is second to none. There is no one I would trust more with such a crucial business decision. CCG is the best in the business.”
