Our Approach

Based on Strategy

Partnership is in our DNA and in our Name. We seek out business owners who are of high integrity and show a deep passion for the legacy they have built, oftentimes over multiple generations. We prioritize protecting this multi-decade legacy via a collaborative approach, working with owners to seamlessly transition their employees, customers, and brand.

Growth Strategy

In our most successful transitions, we have worked hand-in-hand with owners for multiple years post transaction, combining their expertise and vision with our strategic model. Our team is committed to driving long-term value via active involvement in the business, making strategic relationship introductions, introducing employee incentive programs , and much more. When we grow, everyone wins.

Operating Strategy

We do not fire trusted employees, increase workloads, or make value-diminishing moves to optimize for a short term sale. Our team and investment process, bolstered by our committed capital base and partner companies, LDR Leadership and LDR Advisory Partners, allow us to approach investments with flexibility and patience.
