We offer a flexible and efficient exit plan for owner-operators. Whether you are looking to completely exit, transition over time, or reduce your day-to-day involvement, we’ll work with you to craft a plan that meets your goals.
We are looking to acquire one outstanding business, not build a portfolio. Justin will relocate and manage daily operations as the company’s CEO, dedicating himself to the business.
You’ve poured in your time and energy to create something special. We will respect you, your employees, and your customers by building on your work and maintaining your legacy.
Mutual trust is critically important, and we will always communicate openly, honestly, and transparently. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and expect the same of our partners.
Please get in touch if you’d like a confidential conversation about how we can work together.
Justin’s great grandfather, Douglas Watson, immigrated to Canada from Scotland in 1912. While the voyage from Scotland to Canada was fraught with risk in those days – the Titanic had made its perilous journey across the same stretch of ocean only one week earlier – Douglas made the journey because he believed in the hope, promise, and opportunity that Canada offered. Thankfully, Douglas made the journey successfully and ultimately settled in Edmonton, where he set up a family brick laying business. Justin shares this entrepreneurial spirit and sees the same promise and opportunity in acquiring and operating a business today.
Justin brings a unique skillset in engineering, consulting, and investing in small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across a wide range of industries. Most recently, Justin worked with an internationally recognized entrepreneur and investor, Simon Webster, investing in SMBs across Canada, the US, UK, EU, and Latin America. Prior to this role, Justin was an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company, where he built up his strategic thinking and operational improvement abilities. Justin has also held a variety of engineering roles in areas such as utilities, renewable energy, robotics, and biomechanics.
Justin received his BSc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta and an MBA from London Business School. He lives in Calgary with his wife and is ready to relocate to personally manage the right business opportunity.
