“We hired Copper Run to find Irish Roofing the ideal partner and they delivered a great outcome for us. Copper Run introduced us to a number of potential partners and ran a tight process that led to us choosing O2. We were then able to close the sale less than five months after hiring Copper Run. The responsiveness and tenacity of Copper Run was tremendous! We couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Copper Run and would recommend their services to anyone who asks.”
