Our Clients are Business Owners – Just Like You

Over the past 50 years Johnsons has built a successful track record of achieving results for the owners of mid-sized private & family owned businesses.

Every day we work with owners of Australian private businesses to help them achieve their objectives. Whether its growth and expansion via acquisitions or achieving succession and a successful exit strategy through divestment. We’re beside them all the way.

Following are some examples of business owners who we’ve worked with and helped them to achieve their objectives. Although they’re across a variety of industries, they all have one thing in common – identifying a strategic buyer or seller to maximize their outcome. And that’s what we do best.
