Neil Jones, Corporate Director at Ansons who led the Ansons’ deal team said: “We are delighted to have been able to support Amanda and James in taking ExtraMile to the next stage of its journey.  They have been instrumental in the growth and development of the business over the last three years and I have no doubt that their clear vision will lead ExtraMile to even greater success in the future.  We are very much looking forward to supporting them in this new era.”

Amanda Brooke commented: “We found that Neil and his team were able to make a potentially complex process seem straightforward. The calm approachable nature of the team made it easy for us to raise issues and get quick responses. They provided reasoned arguments, were incredibly supportive and professional and we would not hesitate to work with them again.”
