Matt Gumbley the founder of Company Sales & Acquisitions.

Matt a chartered accountant with a background in accounting, merchant banks and senior corporate roles before becoming a M&A specialist with a merchant bank and then transitioning to a very well respected business broker.  He established Company Sales & Acquisitions in 1989 and continued selling businesses for over 30 years.

Clyth MacLeod Business Sales took over Company Sales & Acquisitions in 2019.  CSA is now a division of CML. 

Over the years Clyth and Glorianne had always enjoyed a great relationship with Matt and his team.  It was a natural progressive step for Clyth MacLeod Business Sales to takeover CSA.  The values of CSA "Professionalism, trustworthiness and honesty" are aligned well with the motto Clyth MacLeod has always lived by "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". 

CSA are a small but highly-effective team. We’ve all got our individual skills, and we have experience owning and running our own businesses.

We work as a team. We match up each business with the broker who has the most appropriate skill sets, then work together.

It’s called a partnership, and the key to getting the right results for our buyers and sellers. Our results speak for themselves, but so do our happy clients, many of whom have  returned many times over the years to buy and sell with us. We pride ourselves on old- fashioned face to face business while utilising every modern tool and approach available.

We don't do hard sales tactics - we just take the time and effort to put the right people together for great outcomes.
