Meet Clive Margetts

Clive Margetts is a business consultant specialising in helping business owners wanting to buy or sell a business. Whether you want to grow through acquisition or exit your business through a successful sale, Clive has the knowledge, experience and network to help make it happen.

About Clive Margetts

As a serial entrepreneur, Clive has personally walked the walk himself. Launching, scaling, acquiring and selling multiple businesses. So he’s not just got the theory! He’s been there and done it before himself. This expertise and hands-on experience are priceless, but when you work with Clive, you also get access to his network.

Who You Know Matters…

While you will work directly with Clive, you’ll also gain access to his network of over 270 other business acquirers across the US, UK, Australia, Germany, Spain and Portugal. This can be an invaluable resource when you’re looking for someone to buy your business.

There are investors and business owners out there who could be looking to buy a business just like yours right now. Clive will help you find the right people, at the right time – and equip you with the knowledge you need to negotiate and navigate a successful merger or acquisition.

Who Clive & His Network Work With

Clive and his network of business acquirers work with business owners, entrepreneurs and new investors who want to buy or sell a business and need help understanding the process or finding a buyer.

With hundreds of years of experience between them, Clive and his network can work with most sectors but they have a special interest in:

Commercial Real Estate

Is The Business Success Consultant Right For You?

As with many successful business mergers and acquisitions experts, Clive is in the fortunate position that he doesn’t have to do deals that don’t sit right. Opportunity and relationships are more important than the financial rewards, so it’s important that you, your business and Clive are a good fit.

Of course, there does have to be a commercial benefit that rewards everyone involved in the end! But most importantly, you need to be on the same wavelength for the magic to really happen.

So, whether you are looking to build a significant group or sell your life’s project, the first step is a virtual meeting of minds over Zoom to see if you and Clive “click”.

No need for any fancy or grand plans (you’ll sort that together if you’re a good fit), just bring yourself and a clear vision of what you want to ultimately achieve. If there’s a connection, Clive will work with you to create the road map to achieving your goals.
