Our management team, sponsor and directors all have extensive experience in identifying and executing such full potential acquisitions across industries and business cycles. In addition, our management team, sponsor and directors have extensive hands-on experience working with companies as active owners, operators and/or directors by working closely with these companies to continue their transformations and by helping to create value through organic growth and synergies.
