Granite Creek’s operational orientation adds to management’s deep domain expertise and leverages their capabilities to grow their businesses both organically and through acquisitions.


Invest for Long-Term Success

For us, success is not only measured by achieving an attractive return over the period of our investment, but also by ensuring that our portfolio companies prolong their growth and success for the long-term. Our goal is to build enduring companies that serve all stakeholders — employees, customers, suppliers, and investors — and successfully sustain over varied economic cycles. Central to that purpose is a relentless dedication to building outstanding companies that are leaders in their field, creating great workplaces that empower employees, and integrating responsible environmental, social, and governance practices into our operations. We dedicate considerable forethought to succession and exit planning, which allows us to maximize value for our partners and future stakeholders. We believe that adhering to these tenets sets the stage for continued growth and exceptional outcomes.
