Gardner Ross announces closing its operations after 13 years in business. “We have concluded our final engagement with a European conglomerate, and now it’s time for all of us to start on a new life chapter.”

Gardner Ross worked globally with private equity and venture capital firms, along with private and publicly traded companies in the technology, manufacturing, and retail sectors.

We have been honored to be a part of the Toronto business community for the last thirteen years and have been blessed to succeed through an economic downturn, a pandemic, and countless other challenges. Our incredible staff has leaned repeatedly to help nurture this business through tough times, and the business communities throughout North America have consistently shown up for us. We are deeply grateful for all the care that so many people have shown.

There is no easy time to make a decision like this, particularly having been fortunate enough to operate in such a fast-paced environment, but we simply could not commit to another decade of operations at this point in time. Between the founding partners' Cliff, William, and I, we have nearly a hundred collective years in the turnaround and restructuring space. While we have a few good years left, the simple truth is that all of us need and want to narrow our focus and turn our attention to other ongoing projects. Like so many others, we learned during the pandemic that sometimes less is more, and life is too short to be continuously occupied all the time.

The real reward of Gardner Ross for us has always been creating wonderful memories with employees and clients, putting smiles on as many faces as possible, and creating a work environment that people could enjoy as their home away from home. Those experiences made this decision very hard, even when we clearly knew what to do. We will dearly miss our great employees and clients.

“Working with the world’s largest companies was some of my fondest memories.” - John R. Trikola

With the deepest sincerity, we want to say thank you to everyone who has put their time and effort with us in this endeavor, and thank you to all who have been a part of our success these past years.

The good news is Mr. Trikola will continue to take on assignments from time to time depending on the scope of work, location, and length of time.
