Chairman & Managing Partner
We invest in private equity deals with an emphasis on leveraged buyouts and control-oriented investments, but give consideration to minority investments on a selective basis. Our successful investment model involves working closely with the managements of portfolio companies, typically as partners and co-owners. Our investment horizon is long term. We aim to hold portfolio companies for four to six years before exit.
