“Powerscourt were by our side throughout the disposal of our food division. They were pivotal in the initial drafting of the communications documents and ensuring the logistics on announcement day were seamless. We relied upon them heavily to ensure our communications were joined up and successful and I always felt that I could rely on their advice and support. The team at Powerscourt have been every bit a ‘trusted adviser’ to us since their appointment in 2013 and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
