Rob Hooton, who had been our accountant since the early 1990’s, was, as always, professional, extremely diligent, proactive and most of all, positive!
An important lesson that we learned: When one is about to sell ones company, it can be at times, an emotional experience!
Having Rob on our side, was a bonus! He made us very aware and accountable and understanding of everything that was happening. Rob Hooton, was without doubt, the most integral component to the sale of our business.
Rob attended the meetings between us and the out of province purchasers and worked closely with our lawyers and was part of every important decision-making process.
Rob is an “all-in” guy and added a huge amount of insight and professionalism to the sale of our company. If we were doing it over again, we would absolutely want Rob Hooton to be part of our team.
Rob was available at all times and always went above and beyond regardless of what he has on his plate. He always made me feel like we were his most important client and what we had happening was his priority. He was very involved in keeping our deal on track and maximizing our sale price. Rob was a strong partner and his ability to work with lawyers was invaluable. The trust I have for Rob was the foundation of our relationship and have never questioned his decisions and advice he delivered.
Rob was our corporate accountant for 15+ years. He was an integral trusted advisor to our family business throughout the years. When it came time for us to consider selling the business, Rob was extremely helpful throughout the negotiations and the due diligence process. He also helped structure the sale in the most tax effective manner possible.
