“We got to leverage a lot of [Housatonic’s] industry knowledge and take what they had done at other places and put it in to practice at Hemasource. I certainly value their suggestions, insights, business acumen; but they’ve [also] become great friends over the past four years.”
Todd Tracey, Hemasource
“[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
“I went through the Great Recession with Housatonic as my investment partner. [They were supportive] of how we could grow and support our clients during that really challenging time. As a result, our business really took off. I couldn’t have done that without Housatonic’s support.”
Ben Godsey, Proservice Hawaii
“Housatonic was our original backer. . . . [When choosing a partner], I think it’s important to look at the caliber of people; I think it’s important to look at the depths of the financial pockets and the resources that they can bring to the table. . . . Even as a seller, you want to know that the people you’re entrusting your company to are solid and that they are going to do right by you.”
Karen Moriarty, Carillon Assisted Living
“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.”
Scott Tucker, Fasteners Distrubution Holdings
