Alex Robbio, Belatrix President, commented on the transaction “When we decided to engage a banker to represent us we talked to a lot of firms, but it was only when we met with the 7 Mile team that we felt true comfort that we would be represented not only by top-notch professionals but, most importantly, by truly honest people that would be willing to put our needs above their interests.”
