About Our Client:
Our client is a Midwest-based private equity investment firm with over 30 years of experience in investing, building, and improving businesses. Our client takes an active portfolio management approach and ensures proper management team incentives are in place. Our client’s partners are the largest investors in their fund, so they have significant “skin in the game.” As a result, they generally pursue a longer-term hold period for their investments, focusing on a long-term perspective and a partnership mentality.
The client has been recognized by several institutions for their expertise in working with private business owners, and nearly 70% of the acquisitions the team has completed were with entrepreneurs/owners. They focus on being a good steward of a business owner’s legacy.
Our client features a strong team and Midwest-based culture and is looking for businesses that (a) feature a strong strategic fit in terms of the type of critical-component or service focus and end markets, and (b) is a strong cultural fit with our client.
