“I have known the Frontenac team since I transitioned from the corporate world to private equity 12 years ago. From our first meeting to today, I have been impressed with their food industry expertise, strategic focus and in-depth understanding of their businesses. Perhaps most impressive is the firm’s focus on building relationships with people – treating them with respect, engaging with them as partners and leveraging their collective talents. ”
