Client Testimonial

TM Capital was the ideal advisor for Norris Sales. As a multi-generation family business, we needed a banker who understood our industry, respected our concern for confidentiality and guided us on a path to an outstanding outcome. TM was committed to the process from beginning to end, sweated every detail and exhibited great negotiating skills. TM demonstrated patience, professionalism, integrity and attention throughout the process. Importantly, while TM identified a variety of attractive options for the family, United Rentals distinguished itself as the right partner for Norris - we’re confident that UR will continue the legacy we’ve built by offering our employees and customers expanded resources and growth opportunities”
