HKW is evolving with clarity and purpose, while honoring the vision of the firm’s founders and our 100 plus year history. We focus on specific sectors in which we can utilize our skills and perspective, leveraging technology as part of a data-driven methodology to power our “Four Pillar” structure. HKW has developed processes that support our strategy to find, create, and sustain value in our companies while trusting and appreciating that our approach is what sets us apart.

FOUR PILLARS OF SUCCESS

The Four Pillar approach is an organizational structure of how we operate our private equity firm today. This structure affects how we:

  1. Identify opportunities through our deal-sourcing model.
  2. Assess opportunities and manage risk utilizing our proprietary rate360 methodology.
  3. Collaborate with companies to execute fundamental operational initiatives.
  4. Consider exit strategies beginning the day the deal closes.
