Our three person senior team has worked together for nearly 30 years

We have investment experience across many industries. We are a preferred investor for businesses undergoing a change where new ownership is needed or desired to position the company for growth, stability or succession. This is particularly true for family owned businesses where owners care deeply about the ongoing success of their businesses and employees.
