Our Roots

Guiding Principles

We are rooted in a passion to help founders, managers, and families solve succession planning and build great companies. What does “rooted” mean to us? To have conviction in our purpose and stand firmly on our principles.



Good listeners make great partners. We want to hear your story, understand your passion, fuel your aspirations, learn from your mistakes, celebrate your victories, share your knowledge, and earn your respect.


We believe partnering means sharing equally in the business, aligning our financial and business interests, and bringing our shared expertise and experience to the table to identify the best opportunities for the company.


KLH respects the legacies entrepreneurs have built and the personnel they have trained and mentored. We want to continue building on those successes, recognizing that our partners best understand how to run their businesses.


Our firm’s deep partner involvement gives business owners, management teams, intermediaries, and independent equity sponsors direct access to decision makers to better facilitate successful processes in a timely manner.


In the end, every investment’s success rests on the people involved. This is why we seek and foster healthy relationships based on trust and respect, allowing us to leverage our partners’ strengths and complement their weaknesses to build value in the most efficient manner possible.
