We have spent our entire careers helping businesses grow, transform and reach their full potential. Whether working with Bain clients, leading public companies or as active investors, our entire culture is centred on building partnerships with management teams to help them drive full potential performance within their companies.
We work with these teams as true partners – where we share risks and rewards – and focus on the few key levers that truly drive value creation. We believe that in every situation there are a handful of levers that will ultimate determine our joint success, and we do all we can to support management to maximize the performance in each of them.
While the actions themselves may be different company to company, situation to situation, we believe that collecting external data is a key part of creating an industry-leading business. By really understanding key customers and competitors, we can help management set the right course for the business. Instead of navigating through fog, we can help determine the best way to move forward to maximize the company’s competitive advantages and build long-term defenses against the competition.
We are not managers looking to run our businesses. We are the support and sounding boards for our managers as they grow their businesses. We are always on the boards of directors and we are always active with management, working closely on the key value drivers, from strategic planning to capital allocation, financial structure and eventually exit planning.
