Born in 2011, Hilton Smythe has since helped 1,000’s of people buy and sell businesses, throughout the UK

Hilton Smythe 10 Years

Where it all began…

Gareth Smyth and Craig Graham founded Hilton Smythe in 2011. Best friends, they decided the world of business broking needed a bit of a shake up.

Gareth started selling businesses in 2006 and quickly realised that brokers didn’t care about their clients or their businesses. It was all about charging clients upfront fees and as a bonus, selling the odd one or two businesses.

Gareth and Craig wanted to challenge the norm and focus on actually selling businesses and good old fashioned customer service.

Belinda Daniels, Service Manager.

Belinda dealt with my enquiry in April at the start of the pandemic working from home. I cannot thank her enough a credit to the company she works for who in my opinion lucky to have her. I network with other Southwest business persons and would have no hesitation in recommending Hilton Smythe or Belinda to my business colleagues or use your company again myself should the opportunity arise.
