Chester Creek Capital. We are better together.
At Chester Creek Capital we understand that the value of every business is in their employees. We have a strong belief that empowering our employees creates a positive atmosphere for them, as well as positive results for our investors.
Long Term Horizon
Great companies are not built in a day. Our interest is in taking founder-led companies and positioning them for the next stage of long term growth and success, while maintaining the legacy of the founders.
One of the critical ingredients that Chester Creek Capital brings is our operating management team to help coach and grow the existing company managers. Our process is to put in an operating structure that will allow for repeatable delivery, growth, and profitability. Our executive team has helped coach dozens of leadership teams over the years.
We understand the importance of timeliness while doing a transaction. At Chester Creek Capital, we bring our own investment capital to our acquisitions, and we do not have any outside investors. Also, the investment decisions are made internally and can be done quickly, efficiently and successfully – it’s one of the benefits of doing business with a family-run company.
