Investment Approach » For Owners and Management
As founders of a business ourselves, we understand the commitment required and the risks undertaken to build a company. We also understand that in the course of building and growing a business, owners are faced with a series of decisions, many of which can be increasingly complex. Often, the need for personal liquidity, a need for growth capital, diverging stakeholder interests, succession issues, or family dynamics, bring the future of a business into sharp focus. Throughout our investment careers we have worked with business owners to find solutions to these challenges, and partnered with them to create a path for continued company growth.
Our approach to investing encourages owners and managers to leverage our broad base of experience, as well as the expertise of our Advisory Council and partners network, while continuing to manage their business. Our objective is to drive an active growth plan from the Board level that has been developed and agreed upon during the investment process. Our team contributes an experience set derived from decades of private equity investing, as well as the capital and resources to promote long term growth. We are proud of our history of private equity investing in partnership with the people that form the culture of successful businesses.
