“We set out to build…partnerships with outstanding people.”
— Housatonic Partners

“[Housatonic’s partners] are not just about the transaction. They’re about the full exposure to their investment [including] the CEO’s involvement for a period of years. They want to understand your goals [as a CEO]. I really like that.”

— Dennis Barnedt,  ZircoDATA

“One thing that really stands out to me is [Housatonic’s] pattern recognition . . . they have worked with a lot of businesses, and that gives them the ability to see recurring issues…and opportunities.”

— Brian Williams, FIMC

“It’s clear that [Housatonic] takes a long term horizon which is interesting . . . because the decision making that takes place is usually done with a longer term return profile.”

— Dave Engert, ONRAD

“To grow, we had to make a few intelligent bets…[Housatonic] was incredibly supportive about making those investments, and asked the appropriate questions of what would be the right milestones to know that we were on track.”

— Katy Keim, LQ Digital

“The partners at Housatonic [have] high integrity, they’re smart, they’re analytical, and they’re strategic – so as partners looking at new investments or as board members, they bring more…than just the cash to get a deal done.”

— Andrew Cousin, Circle Graphics
