From oil & gas services and equipment, to distribution and refining, our combination of ‘boots-on-the-ground’ experience and first-hand expertise is critical in an industry that demands both.

It begins with a relationship.

At Founders, we offer business owners like you step-by-step guidance to facilitate the selling or growing of your business. But in truth, we offer much more. We offer a relationship. One fortified by our knowledge of your industry. Knowledge that wasn’t gained by someone sitting in an office wearing a flashy suit, but by someone who’s been in the field, literally, wearing jeans and a pair of mud-caked steel-toed boots. Someone you can talk to. Someone who gets it. And someone who understands that this isn’t just a business—it’s your business.

Through our experience within your industry, and our own expertise, we’re able to go beyond understanding your needs—we’re able to anticipate them. To be with you every muddy step of the way. To ensure that we find you the best offer, from the best buyer, and all while keeping in mind what’s best for your company’s ultimate legacy. So while working with us may begin as a business relationship, you’ll quickly find that we take relationships of any kind personally.

At Founders, it begins with a relationship.
