Mangrove enjoys a long history of partnering with owners and management teams to achieve their goals of creating personal liquidity, diversifying their net worth, and partnering with people who understand their business and can help maximize the value of their retained ownership.

As three of the seven principals at Mangrove are seasoned operators themselves, we understand and greatly respect the owners and management teams with whom we partner. Having substantial operating experience, we take a collaborative approach to building value while preserving the culture at the companies with which we partner.
