In January 2022, I met Amin Shamji of Buy Sell Consortium to discuss future possibilities. We ran 4 funeral establishments located in Guelph and Acton. Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home is a family-owned business that has proudly served Guelph and the surrounding area for 90 years. It was a major decision when we opted to sell our family businesses and we spent many months looking for the perfect buyer to lead our Funeral Homes to a bright future. It was a tough decision and with the direction of Amin, Greg Ternoway, and their professional and knowledgeable team at Buy Sell Consortium, we were able to secure a buyer that would be a great fit for our family, staff, and community.We felt that Buy Sell Consortium shared our business philosophy and ethics and understood the characteristics that make our funeral operations unique within our community.
Buy Sell Consortium provided critical support during this time of transition to make the process feel less stressful and provide support during the acquisition.
The future looks promising! I hope to continue doing the parts of the job I have always loved and enjoyed and have an ideal work-life balance. We are very pleased with our decision to have been able to work with Buy Sell Consortium and feel confident we have left our business in incredibly capable hands!
