Brian Hurl’s business is chocolate. For 10 years, he was owner and CEO of Foley’s Candies, one of Canada’s largest chocolate manufacturers. In 2016, Brian chose Yellow Point to partner on a buyout deal that included key Foley’s executives taking a meaningful equity stake in the business.
Money With Heart
“Yellow Point’s team has a longer-term view of wealth creation that benefits their investors, the employees of the companies they buy and ultimately themselves. It is about the money, but it’s money with a heart. It’s not cutthroat. They’re Canadian. They’re responsive. They care.”
Hands Off the Wheel
“They didn’t try to stick their head in and change things that they didn’t understand. Yellow Point manages businesses the right way. They’re engaged and interested but they don’t put their hands on the wheel and want to drive.”
