Value Creation Platform

We work diligently with our management teams to help them formulate strategic, financial, and operational plans that drive growth and enhance profits.  During implementation, we make the resources of our powerful network, most notably our Centre Operating Partners, available to help our management teams achieve their goals and create value.  Our investment professionals are diligent and proactive partners who understand that managers need operational autonomy.  We are focused and always available without being intrusive.

  • Product line, distribution channel and geographic expansion

  • De novo development
  • Licensing opportunities
  • Strategic partnerships
  • Add-on acquisitions

Centre Operating Partners

We founded Centre Operating Partners over fifteen years ago and the group now includes over 45 accomplished senior executives who work with us to provide their expertise and collaboration on every one of our investments. They help us target specific sectors within our industries of focus, source potential investments and assess new opportunities.  They assist us in due diligence, provide strategic and operational guidance and serve as Directors or in operating roles in our portfolio companies as needed. Through their extensive network, they help us recruit and build management teams. Our Centre Operating Partners are a source of expert business advice and immediate operating solutions.

Our large network of operating executives positions us favorably with business owners and managers. Our collective expertise allows us to tackle businesses in need of transformation through the support of one or more operating managers or the development of innovative strategic initiatives. The collaborative cultural approach of our network has made us the preferred partner for sellers and managers alike in need of financial and operating partners.
