Business Services

Selling companies in the business service sector has become an increasingly significant part of what we do at Cavendish. It is also a challenge we relish.

The spectrum of business-to-business services is broad, covering operations as diverse as running airports, recruiting personnel, distributing freight, overseeing call centres, supplying water coolers, collecting parking fines and managing waste.

Cavendish covers the full scope of business services and understands the sensitivities of extracting value in a deal context from customer contracts and relationships. However, the same principles apply as they do in every other sector: we do everything we can to leverage our expertise, inside knowledge and experience to get you – the seller – the best possible deal.
