Client Testimonial

The Walpole Outdoors brand represents an 80+ year heritage of providing the highest quality, premium outdoor products.  Unlike others in the category, we focus on nurturing direct consumer relationships via an omni-channel model that includes terrestrial retail locations and a strong online presence.  We chose TM Capital as our advisor because they had the perfect blend of experience representing market-leading brands, with a wealth of transaction history in our sector and with other direct-to-consumer businesses.  Most important, though, was the personality fit between our organizations.  TM Capital brings the highest level of client care to each of their projects, which is the exact same mentality we embrace at Walpole Outdoors.  TM Capital’s expertise, dedication and senior-level attention created a very successful outcome - we are excited about our new partner and our collective plans to continue to grow the Walpole brand.”
