Henry Blunt, Wren Sterling’s Acquisitions Director added:

“I’ve advised hundreds of acquiring parties, from new market entrants to national consolidators, but Wren Sterling really stood out.

I’m looking forward to working with Ian and the rest of the Wren Sterling leadership team to grow the business.”
