As a CEO, it is critical to build and maintain a constructive, supportive, and collaborative relationship with your investors and board members. The Reynolda Equity Partners team has made it easy to achieve this board/investor/CEO alignment because they are quality people. I have found success is much easier and far more fun when partnered with good people.”

Reynolda was a great partner for me as I worked through transitioning the family business into a professional company poised for growth. Their team’s ability to help me recruit talent to the organization, build a true leadership team, expand our breadth of products and channels, and complete tuck-in acquisitions in product adjacencies all served to create a best-in-class automotive aftermarket platform. And along the way, we had a ton of fun working together.”

Reynolda Equity Partners has been instrumental in facilitating our organic growth and two very successful acquisitions. They are an outstanding organization and possess excellent skills that are required when running a complex business such as a software company in the cybersecurity space.
