PARTNERSHIP WITH MANAGEMENT

We believe in a constructive partnership with strong management teams that provides appropriate support and incentives for value creation. We tailor our level of involvement to suit management's needs and use the successful approaches our partners have developed over decades of building and growing successful companies. Rather than get involved in the day-to-day operations, we let management do what they do best. However, we provide active board oversight, strategic guidance and financial discipline to enhance the value creation opportunity of each company. We also leverage our network of expert industry and operating resources. Moreover, we believe in aligning financial incentives with our management teams and always provide for an appropriate management incentive plan.
