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.
