The Waterland team is comprised of carefully selected professionals to best execute Waterland’s strategy. The investment team members have a balanced mix of operational, M&A advisory, strategic consulting, financing and entrepreneurial skills. In addition to formulating the strategic direction of portfolio companies and to helping execute the buy-and-build strategy, the investment team also has the necessary skills to address specific portfolio related issues and supplement (on a project basis) the management capabilities of its portfolio companies where necessary.
Nearly all senior members of the investment team have entrepreneurial experience or grew up in a family owned business environment. Their experience with diverse issues such as business scalability, strategic market developments, integration challenges, synergy extraction and assessment of managerial qualities are of key importance to implement Waterland’s strategy successfully. Team member selection is made with these elements in mind.
