"This deal was, ultimately, entirely dependent on Fred and his team. It was a long and complex process with many unanticipated challenges that resulted in a need for flexibility, intelligence, expertise and a lot of very hard work. Fred managed this process with tact and firmness to coalesce our positioning. Fred and his team were available 24/7 when we needed them. Most of all, Fred managed to lead the board to understand what was critical and what was immaterial in this complex, multi-jurisdictional deal. The next time I want to sell a business AGC, and Fred in particular, will be my first call."
