Deal Leaders International (DLI) is a professional advisory firm that specialises in working with the owners of privately owned businesses to implement their growth or exit strategy. No matter if it’s a full sale, part sale or the right BEE partner, we will find the right buyer. Our approach is all about the seller. What’s important to them is important to us.

Through our extensive local and international networks in over 20 geographies, combined with our far-reaching research capabilities, we can identify the very best acquirers, strategic growth partners or transformation capital (BEE) partners to suit a seller’s exit or growth strategy requirements. We are the Africa representative of the Pandea Global M&A network, and our alliances with CapEQ and Onyx in the UK provides unparalleled access to a pool of high-net-worth acquirers and strategic partners.


Deal Leaders International was started by Andrew Bahlmann in April 2017. Long-time business partner, Rick Grantham, later joined as Joint-CEO. Both have years of mergers and acquisitions experience and can provide you with the best advice and an analysis of your business and the market.

Their entrepreneurial DNA always ensures that they adopt the approach of ‘how we can’ versus ‘why we can’t’. Rick and Andrew are supported by a team of 13 highly specialised professionals who are agile and adaptable to each client’s requirements.

Our level of professional service, execution capability, governance and confidentiality make us the number one choice as sell-side advisors for the owners of privately owned businesses.
