We have been investing in family-owned businesses for over 30 years, assisting business owners in achieving their goals.
In each of our investments, management establishes the long-term objectives for the business and retains day-to-day operational control. We act as a resource for the management team, which includes offering guidance on strategy, operations, and team development.
We are always learning from the various companies we work with and we share that knowledge with all our companies.
