Private Equity


Cosgrove Partners draws on a full range of industry and functional expertise acquired over more than 30 years as senior level operators and advisers to large and small companies around the world. We bring those capabilities to bear helping activist owners and their portfolio company management teams conduct a rigorous assessment of where their business has the best opportunities to increase its value. This effort identifies the most promising near-term initiatives and longer-term strategic opportunities, establishes time lines with milestones and calibrates the resources needed to meet them.

Throughout, it is our objective to help owner-activists accomplish one overarching goal: To help strong management teams increase the company’s value under their ownership more than they could have achieved if bought by the next highest bidder.


We specialize in managing the complexities of the middle-market private equity transaction environment, and have built marketing, sales, and operational consulting services on point for private equity investors.


Our focused skill, judgment and communication provides the emotional and analytical intelligence behind poised decision-making for successful large-scale, rapid business transformation and value-creating growth management.


We leverage our daily immersion in the middle-market private equity environment to guide your management team through the transaction cycle — setting expectations, preparing for transaction stresses, and resolving potential roadblocks in relation to audits, due diligence, and advisor meetings.


We apply cross-functional expertise – marketing/sales proficiency and middle-market operational perspective – to quickly assess complex situations and effect meaningful change.


We provide visibility into portfolio company operations that limits surprises. We offer executive-level counsel with the experience to help you make sound judgments that create a foundation for future growth.

As executive-level middle-market veterans in public, private, and family-run enterprises, our firsthand knowledge lends significant transaction- and transition-related operating value to your management team.
