Paul Cosgrave, CEO says:

“Bestport has been a fantastic partner to work with. They provide great advice at Board meetings and have been actively involved in growing the business over the last three years. They have been supportive of the management team at critical points on the Dot Net journey and encouraged the business to strive for increased growth which helped us achieve a very successful exit.”
