OVER THE YEARS, WE’VE DEVELOPED:

Our extensive investment criteria and business experience guides us in determining which of the many acquisition opportunities we review are most likely to succeed.
We have worked together for many years, supplementing home-grown talent with lateral hires from leading corporations and private equity firms. Our culture, model, and success have led to very strong employee retention.
THESE QUALITIES HAVE LED TO:
