  • Professional and career growth opportunities available to entrepreneurs through partnering with the private equity firm.
  • A roll-up-your-sleeves approach to helping management achieve goals.
  • A demonstrated ability to close transactions and add value.

We look for...

  • Leaders in niche markets
  • EBITDA up to $65 million for platform companies
  • Talented entrepreneurial executives
  • Investments in eight specific industry sectors
  • Management teams seeking meaningful ownership
