President's Message

 As one the largest company operating in western Canada; running a high profile business in a competitive environment, confidentiality and privacy was a major concern when I was selling my business. After interviewing their team, they demonstrated how they would protect our company privacy and operate with total secrecy.

The team at Pavilion did an exemplary job of maintaining a low profile throughout the sale process. They have unique methods to market the business, and keep it under the radar. We had numerous qualified bidders, their in-house marketing agency Firstbase did a great job. I’m very pleased with the sales price and overall outcome – well done. 
Gordon Gibbons, Mud Bay Drilling.
