Cougar has received an investment from dmg information
“Licking our wounds of a failed deal we attempted to navigate ourselves, we engaged the SEG team for the next opportunity and never looked back. What resonated for me with Allen and the SEG team was the sincerity and integrity, and knowing they had my best interests at heart. SEG is not about just getting another deal done, they are in it for the long term and strive for win-win outcomes from a place of honesty and integrity, which is why many years later we still keep in regular contact.”
