Business Owners

You’ve worked hard over the years to build your business into what it is today. Perhaps you recognize that you need to find a way to diversify your wealth or you would like to find a partner that can help you achieve your business goals. However, it feels like a daunting decision. How do I pick the right partner?

Kirtland is different than most other private equity firms. For starters, our investors are people just like you – individuals who have successfully grown and sold their businesses and families who are looking for ways to invest for the long term. We rely on these individuals to help us build and grow the businesses in which we invest. Additionally, our investor base provides us with flexibility to create a structure to meet your needs. Whether you are looking to sell a portion of your business or the majority of it, we can provide a custom solution to you.   

We have a substantial amount of experience and resources, both internal and external, to support our investments and we work with management to tailor a growth strategy to meet the needs of each business. Kirtland has helped companies achieve growth by making acquisitions, greenfielding new sites, establishing a presence abroad, enhancing sales and marketing efforts, and developing external sales forces. We bring these resources and experience to all of our investments, whether we are a majority investor or a minority investor. 

Kirtland has been making investments in privately held businesses for nearly 40 years. We have lived through cycles and recognize that all companies face good times and bad. We don’t give up when times get tough.  

We are from the Midwest and believe we are a good representation of what makes the Midwest unique. We are hardworking, humble, and like to have fun.   

If you like what you hear, give us a call and we can have a confidential conversation about your goals. We hope this is the beginning of another successful relationship. Because at Kirtland, Relationships Matter.
