We view internal and external teamwork as essential to our long-term success. While the nature of our teamwork takes different forms depending on the situation, a willingness to participate in respectful dialogue about solving problems and implementing business strategies remains at the core.
With respect to business owners, we strive to develop a partnership-type relationship long before the acquisition stage. This approach allows us to understand an owner’s needs in the deal structuring process and address any concerns the owner may have. Upon completion of a transaction, this notion of partnership continues to shape how we interact with a portfolio company. We are an additional resource that helps a company achieve sustainable success.
