While we are continually seeking and evaluating transactions from traditional deal sources including investment banks and business brokers, Friend Skoler also actively seeks to establish working relationships with leading executives to identify and evaluate new investment opportunities. These relationships match up the industry knowledge and operational experience of accomplished executives with our access to capital, transaction expertise, and ability to add strategic value to create a partnership and proactively explore opportunities in a variety of industries and situations. We refer to this effort as our Executive Partnership Program or EPP.

Friend Skolerís objective is to partner with accomplished senior managers with the drive and entrepreneurial skills to acquire and build leading companies in the smaller end of the middle market. We have found that the most effective Executive Partnership's will have a combination of the following characteristics:

  • A proactive approach to identifying investment opportunities

  • Ten+ years of senior management experience including P & L responsibility

  • A track record of achieving outstanding operating and financial results

  • A reputation as a leader in their chosen field

  • A demonstrated history of high professional and ethical standards

For executives interested in a confidential discussion about the Friend Skoler Executive Partnership Program or specific investment opportunities, please contact Cheryl Moss at cmoss@friendskoler.com, or call (201) 712-0075.
