What Our Partners Say

[The Succession Fund] gave me the opportunity to join with patient investors that shared my passion for […] developing and pursuing a growth strategy. With Larry and Richard’s support and active involvement, we built a company with lasting value and a meaningful legacy.”

RON MCAVAN
Founder and Director of Celtrade Canada Inc.

As patient investors with a long-term view to building value, The Shotgun Fund’s partners were actively involved with our team in reviewing all the new business initiatives we pursued that were consistent with our evolving strategy.”

– DEMETRIUS TSAFARIDIS
Founder and Former CEO of Carego

[Without Argosy], I would have lost the innovative, award-winning company I started over 25 years ago. With Argosy’s involvement, we were able to significantly grow our revenue, profitability and cash flow.”

– GIL DENSHAM
CEO of CAST Group of Companies

I have had the privilege of actively working with Larry and Richard for the last ten years. I first met them in late 1999, a full 20 years ago, just prior to the management team of Prime Restaurants completing a 100% buyout. I was the CEO and a significant shareholder. At the time we were seeking potential financial partners. Financing was sourced elsewhere, but we stayed in contact as our businesses grew.”

– JOHN ROTHSCHILD
Former Director of Celtrade Canada Inc.

The Shotgun Fund was a valuable and supportive equity investor and Board partner for us. We are proud to recognize The Shotgun Fund’s role in helping to establish the strong foundation on which we have continued to grow our business.”

– ALNOOR GULAMANI
President of Bayview Hospitality Inc.

The Shotgun Fund moved quickly and decisively and we had a successful relationship from 2000 to 2017. We worked closely with Richard and Larry on building out the management team, […] achieving a strong result for all shareholders.”

– MICHAEL DESNOYERS
Founder and Former CEO of Etratech

The opportunity to negotiate the buyout of Insception was one of the highlights of my career. It was matched by the ability to work with a quality team and Board with a shared focus on growing the company and building value.”

– RICHARD LOCKIE
Former CEO of Insception Lifebank

Richard was a valuable contributor on the Board for 18 years, and more importantly, a supportive partner for me and my family and our team. The Shotgun Fund’s support as a long-term oriented partner helped contribute to our growth and success.”

– LOUIS BIBEAU
President, CEO and Founder of Logistik Unicorp Inc.

[Richard’s] disciplined […] approach of focusing on working with owner operators to strategically build their businesses and add professional management really paid off. I believe the Argosy formula for success is simple but very effective.”

Independent Director and Private Company Investor
