Georgia Oak Partners (“GOP”) is a highly differentiated investment platform focused on growth private equity investments in the Southeast US. Our model uniquely combines operational and financial expertise throughout the investing process: from deal sourcing, to strategic appraisal, to post-acquisition value creation. We believe our strategic approach and operational philosophy can generate long-term stakeholder value through the spectrum of business lifecycles, from turnaround situations to acquisition growth strategies.
We believe the GOP “difference” comes down to three distinct elements of our approach:
- Strategic, operational mindset: we bring to bear significant operational expertise to help drive long-term stakeholder value; we are not “financial engineers”
- Long-term, legacy-minded outlook: we take a long-term view, not only with respect to our investments, but also with the legacy in which we are entrusted
- Partnership approach: we seek to partner with business owners through flexible structuring, promoting the retention of equity and on-going involvement in the business
