Team

Our partners have been private equity investors for nearly 30 years and have a proven track record of helping middle-market companies succeed.

We have accumulated unique experience addressing a wide range of business opportunities and issues over multiple economic cycles. As Midwesterners, we take pride in hard work and are protective of our culture that embraces collaboration, shared success and straightforward communication. Many firms make these claims, but at Shorehill it is in our DNA.

“We enjoy working shoulder-to-shoulder with management partners to help them grow and improve their businesses. There is true excitement when it works.”

Executive Advisors

We have spent our careers cultivating relationships with an extensive network of executives and seasoned industry experts.

These visionary leaders have direct experience building businesses, many of them entrepreneurs and business owners themselves. Our Executive Advisor Network includes c-suite executives and board directors from over 20 different industries.

Our network is engaged throughout our investment process. Early on, our advisors offer insights on investment opportunities, make introductions to relevant industry sources and assist in evaluating due diligence findings. Post-investment, we use our Executive Advisors as members of a company’s board of directors and as mentors to our management teams.

Become A Shorehill Executive Advisor

We view our Executive Advisors not as day-to-day operators, but as a source of strategic guidance and trusted counsel to our management teams to improve the execution of strategic initiatives.
