Learn How We Foster Growth
Our Operations Team is comprised of in-house functional and strategic leaders, our focused team of expert project leaders and associates, and an eco-system of partners with expertise in key supplemental functions (e.g. digital, market research, IT). Together, these resources work closely both with our investment teams in due diligence to assess growth and improvement opportunities and with our portfolio company executives to act on and capture value across a range of strategic and operational value creation levers. Their work ranges from revenue and growth opportunities such as pricing, product development, and e-commerce, to cost and capital reduction initiatives such as lean manufacturing, procurement, and IT spend management.
Enhancing Operational Excellence
Our deep and dedicated team of strategic and functional experts as well as our embedded resources, provide real skill transfer to drive rapid operational improvements. We improve purchasing and supply-chains, manufacturing efficiencies, business analytics, pricing and margin enhancement, operating costs and inventory, and working capital optimization. These highly differentiated resources underscores our commitment to be added-value partners.
Developing Strategic Thought Partnerships
Our portfolio companies benefit from our wide network of strategic industry contacts, active lending institutions, consultants, recruiters, and management talent. These sources provide market and product expertise, multinational distribution capabilities, access to new customers, and valuable investment and commercial banking capabilities.
Fostering Future Growth
We believe that long-term value can be created through a variety of strategic initiatives, including brand building, new product development, strategic alliances, entry into new channels, and marketing, including specific digital capabilities. We partner with each management team to implement clear strategic and operating plans in order to foster future growth.
