Our investment approach is driven by our guiding philosophy...

  • NO GROWTH-STIFLING DEBT

    • We do not put excessive debt on the companies we partner with.  Businesses need the flexibility to manage through turbulence and invest in growth.

  • NO QUICK FLIPS

    • We do not have set requirements for how long we can own a business.  This allows us to make decisions that are best for the long term health of the company.

  • NO LIPSTICK-WEARING PIGS

    • Our goal is to help build great businesses and not just businesses that look great.  We only do add-on acquisitions that make strategic sense and can be truly integrated.

  • NO MAGIC WANDS

    • We do not hand down directives to management and expect them to be magically completed 3 months later.  We collaboratively set achievable goals and work with our teams to make progress every day.

  • NO JERKS

    • We only partner with people who we trust and who we enjoy working with.  We do not tolerate the "smartest guy in the room" mentality.  We believe success comes from humility and hunger.
