Working with Us

Holleway believes that successful investing is not just the result of closing deals, but rather bringing value-added processes as well as operational and financial discipline to each new investment. The Founders bring a combined 40 years of experience working closely with over 150 individual lower-middle market companies, sellers, senior executives, and board members.

Over the last 25 years the Founders have worked closely with business owners who are interested in transitioning their businesses. We understand this process can be an emotional and disruptive time and owners want to know the business they have worked so hard to build will be valued and appreciated well after the transaction. We work closely with owners, their advisors, and management teams to structure and complete transactions in a time frame and in a manner that meets the owner’s goals.

Consider us when:

  • An owner is looking for retirement and liquidity
  • An owner is looking for some liquidity and expansion capital
  • An inactive shareholder is looking for liquidity of a private company holding
  • A partner is buying out another partner
  • A corporate division with an operating management team is divested

Holleway’s founders have worked with business owners in each of these situations and created successful win-win transitions for owners and management.

The Founders understand that management teams are the most critical element of any successful business. We look to invest with successful, talented teams that are committed to excellence and want to improve and grow their business. We encourage management teams to invest meaningfully with us in each transaction. Managers who understand the power of equity ownership and whose interests are aligned with the majority owners can create significant shareholder value for all of the equity owners of the business.

Founders have successfully acquired many companies represented by professional intermediaries. We do not play the bid high-and-re-trade game. You can expect honest communication, efficient execution, and have confidence we will get the transaction completed.
