Shared resources

We allow owners and management to focus on delivering best-in-class service, unburdened by the administrative demands of running a business. To do so, we work with current staff to create a strong management infrastructure that removes the burden of back-office management from the current management team. Our network allows our companies to realize economies of scale in purchasing power and to share knowledge and resources within the group for the benefit of each business. Through this collaboration, we achieve unmatched outcomes for each respective business.

Shared resources include:

  • Finance and Accounting
  • Human Resources
  • Procurement
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • General Operational Support
  • Best Practice Sharing

A commitment to excellence

In most of our companies, we seek a majority ownership interest with at least one other senior employee retaining a minority interest. This allows for a true partnership model based on an alignment of expertise and goals.

The minority partner is often the current owner who retains some ownership with a built-in exit strategy that allows them to monetize over time. We also create opportunities for other key employees to build an ownership interest in the business over time.
