Private Equity

We are favored by PE houses and portfolio companies because we work at a fast pace, we drive improvements and growth, and we target tangible value-adds.

PE works to a defined plan. You need changes delivered to budget and timetable. In many cases, management of cash and capital are key. Where capital can be unlocked, we drive outsourcing projects. But when it’s right, we insource technology teams to put innovation and value at the heart of the business.

We typically oversee improvements to IT infrastructure, systems and digital to create a secure, reliable, efficient and effective business platform that can scale up. We often support plans for new products, new channels, new markets and digital expansion. We create, lead and deliver strategies for cyber security, back-office integration and ERP, online, digital and portals, software robots, automated reporting and management information platforms.

Above all, we bring credible and professional management skills to the team and help prepare the business for the next round of growth.  We implement changes which deliver value and send a clear message to staff, customers and prospective buyers that this company has shifted up a gear.
