T

he company positions itself as offering very competitive pricing and a flexible rental plan to fit all budgets. Managing Director Stephen Crisham and Lori Galloway, along with their affiliate Jim Mayfield, led the Generational Equity deal team that advised Tents Hawaii, Inc., on the transaction. "This is a win-win transaction; the seller can now retire, it provides a new US/Hawaii home for this Canadian buyer and family, and continued employment for the employees of this outstanding company," Jim Mayfield stated.
