to Our Approach

Our goal at Heartwood Partners has been and continues to be to provide a unique ecosystem within the world of private equity for family and management-owned businesses to achieve their goals and thrive. We do this by capitalizing businesses more conservatively, encouraging family and management owners to retain some ownership alongside us, and bringing deep operating experience and skilled resources to support management teams.
