- Petros advised the Board through a very difficult sale of our 190 year old business and brought about a satisfactory conclusion for all concerned. He had the confidence of the Directors and the selling solicitors to see them through to the best outcome for the fifty plus shareholders.
Hugh Kelly, former M.D. W. Williams & Son Ltd.
- Petros Georgiou and I were on opposite sides of a takeover; he represented the target and was, at times, a pain in the arse. As the negations drew to a successful conclusion, my respect for him grew.
A problem with detailed negotiation is often that the players have little experience, less knowledge and rely on a bevy of “Experts” all of whom can bring “Agendas” to the table that can seriously muddy the waters.
Petros remained focused and displayed a deep and wide-ranging knowledge, financial, legal and human resource that were vital to all sides. Above all he demonstrated his understanding of a key element of all successful negotiators – the purpose is a successful conclusion that satisfies all participants. Negotiations are not about winning or losing they are about solving. Petros is pre-eminently a solver and I unhesitatingly recommend his services.
Michael Wood Former CFO Byron & Byron Holdings Ltd

Colonnade’s style is credible whilst personable, allowing effortless engagement with the 3rd parties.
