“Rob and his firm have been trusted allies regarding our business for over 25 years. We valued their professional standards and trust that was provided. Rob was prompt, organized and provided good counsel to ourselves and family. We owned a few different businesses that he and his team integrated for best practice.

Rob Hooton has been a trusted advisor for our group of companies and myself personally for over 20 years.  Primarily in the Financial accounting services role but more recently in the sale of multiple companies.   We have a complex structure of family ownership and Rob has provided great  council for all of our decisions.   I would highly recommend Rob to anyone who wants great experience and advice on how to handle and structure the sale of, or purchase of businesses”.

“Rob Hooton, who had been our accountant since the early 1990’s, was, as always, professional, extremely diligent, proactive and most of all, positive!

An important lesson that we learned: When one is about to sell ones company, it can be at times, an emotional experience!

Having Rob on our side, was a bonus! He made us very aware and accountable and understanding of everything that was happening.Rob Hooton, was without doubt, the most integral component to the sale of our business.”

Matthew Willson

Owner of Lakeview Sand and Gravel

“Rob was instrumental in helping our company find and purchase a transportation company. I had contacted Rob’s firm with a strategic purchase in mind. He worked with both the seller and I to come up with a fair agreement for both parties. Rob worked tirelessly to ensure all the details were covered off. By doing so he helped control our legal expense and we could focus our efforts on getting the deal closed without any surprises. Although I knew he had many other deals going on at the time, I felt as though we had all of his attention when we would ask for it. We really appreciate Rob’s ability to get the deal completed and look forward to continuing to work with him going forward.”

“Rob Hooton assisted us greatly when we sold Paris Construction Company Limited. His efforts added significantly to obtain the price we received for our company.
Rob attended the meetings between us and the out of province purchasers and worked closely with our lawyers and was part of every important decision-making process.
Rob is an “all-in” guy and added a huge amount of insight and professionalism to the sale of our company. If we were doing it over again, we would absolutely want Rob Hooton to be part of our team.”

“Rob Hooton was an advisor to The Dorsey Group as well as working closely with the ownership team for acquisition and selling our business. He helped us make the right decisions for our company when we purchased a new business. Rob also helped us navigate the process of selling our business from the initial decision to sell, right through working with the buyers, negotiations, due diligence and closing the deal.
Rob was available at all times and always went above and beyond regardless of what he has on his plate. He always made me feel like we were his most important client and what we had happening was his priority. He was very involved in keeping our deal on track and maximizing our sale price. Rob was a strong partner and his ability to work with lawyers was invaluable. The trust I have for Rob was the foundation of our relationship and have never questioned his decisions and advice he delivered.”

“Rob Hooton acted on my behalf on the sale of my business interest in a large corporation. This was a very sophisticated and complex transaction and Rob was able to complete this process in a very efficient manner. His knowledge of the details related to these types of transactions was comprehensive and he proved to be highly competent. In particular, his tax knowledge was superb and proved to be invaluable in the transaction. The entire process was handled in an extremely professional manner and I would highly recommend his services to anyone that is buying or selling a business. .”
