What Client’s Say

I have worked with Carol Frank in a variety of capacities over the last few years. Her M&A experience and knowledge of the pet industry in unprecedented, and resulted in several successful transactions. I would not hesitate to recommend her if you are considering buying, selling, or recapitalizing your pet company.
David Levy, Zeus and Company
Carol Frank was instrumental in helping W. F. Young in developing a focused acquisition search in both the equine and canine product categories. We’d done an effective job in the past on acquiring brands. However, we needed someone with a higher level of experience and knowledge of the canine industry who could take us levels beyond where we were. Carol had the talent, experience level, and ability to further propel W. F. Young forward in its strategic direction. Carol and her associates were very effective in providing the resources to lead and support our acquisition search. She is a pleasure to work with, and assimilated within our acquisition team seamlessly. In no time at all, she became a valued member of the W. Y. Young team.
Adam D. Raczkowski, President, W. F. Young, Inc.
Carol Frank approached me about an opportunity to acquire Zeus & Company, believing it was a good fit for our Company. We engaged her on a buy-side assignment and she made the introduction, provided credibility for us and was instrumental in negotiations and guiding us to close. We would have not done this acquisition without Carol.
Jim Alden, CFO for Pet Food Experts
I had the pleasure of working with Carol on a search for a VP of Marketing. She understood the requirements and was quickly able to source qualified candidates. She is very professional and we partnered very successfully in finding a great candidate for our organization. I would use Carol’s services again when the need arises.
Carol Goldsmith, Jarden Consumer Solutions
I am extremely happy with how the sale of Pet Professionals Choice was executed. Carol Frank was a delight to work with. She is professional, very responsive, and has intimate knowledge of the pet industry. I simply would not have had as successful of an outcome were it not for Carol. I highly recommend her.
Brian Frohne, Pet Professionals Choice
Carol, I am very pleased that you were involved with the PPC and PFL arrangement. You were a tremendous help to bring many different opinions to closure. Thanks again for your experience, personality and fortitude to help us finalize this deal.
Bern Levine, CEO, Pet Food Limited
Carol’s business prowess and experience in her field is second only to her enthusiasm, charm, and rock solid integrity. It has been a pleasure working with, and getting to know Carol. I would highly recommend her as a business partner, and a new friend. Thank you for all you have done!
