We specialize in making control investments in North American based businesses primarily in the consumer and healthcare industries.
We have a particular expertise in investing in entrepreneur, founder and family owned businesses. We provide these businesses with solutions to ownership transition, capital needs and, if necessary, succession planning. In situations requiring a successor that is not already in place, we are able to turn to our Centre Operating Partners network to find the right executive.
At Centre, our most valuable resource is people – our management teams, our Centre Operating Partners and our employees. We believe our culture of teamwork, respect and open communication drives results.
We believe that focusing on operating plans and strategic goals – and not just financial opportunities – creates meaningful partnerships with our management teams.
Our Partners have been together at Centre for over two decades - that emphasis on long-term relationships is consistent across our portfolio companies and with our Centre Operating Partners.
We bring a creative solutions-oriented approach to addressing the unique needs of both business owners and our management teams.
We focus on investing in North American based middle-market businesses primarily in the following industries and subsectors:
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.
A group of approximately 50 accomplished senior executives who provide their expertise and collaboration on every one of our investments, 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.
