about denton/neely

PROVIDING objectivity and fresh perspective From MARKET ANALYSES AND decades of global BUSINESS MANAGEMENT experience across numerous industries.

Clients see increased cash flow and are able to make decisions with greater clarity about drivers of demand and obstacles that create drags on performance. 

Businesses looking to ignite growth, competitively reposition, and otherwise transform or turnaround commercial performance leverage our expertise in the following areas:  strategy formulation and implementation planning; market appraisals, business model development, and go-to-market planning; M&A due diligence, transaction process support and acquisition integration.  Services are customized and provided flexibly to corporate and business segment needs.

"The business case and financial model expressions prepared by Denton/Neely brought a new level of professional analytics to our project.  This required a massive amount of teamwork in a compressed timeframe, and the results proved their value.”
