Partnership Philosophy

Partnership is good business. That core belief underlies everything we do at Vestar, from our collaborative style to the close relationships we build with our portfolio company management teams.  Much of our success can be credited to our record of being good listeners who respect transparency and believe in strong corporate governance policies.

We are very supportive partners of our management teams. We believe the most successful opportunities are created by strong management teams who respond positively to increased operating autonomy and meaningful equity ownership. We work with management to create long-term value by identifying value drivers that can improve a company’s performance, and we create generous, performance-based incentives that align management with the interests of the shareholders.

The combination of an experienced, motivated management team with Vestar’s financial, strategic and operating experience, expertise, and sophistication has consistently served to enhance the value of Vestar’s portfolio companies.
